Xtreme Solutions Honored as the Women Presidents’ Organization Unveils the 2014 50 Fastest-Growing Women-Owned/Led Companies Worldwide!
April 24, 2014
New Orleans, LA
The Women Presidents’ Organization (WPO) today released its 7th Annual list of the 50 Fastest-Growing Women-Owned/led companies around the globe, ranking Xtreme Solutions among the top companies. The 50 Fastest generated $4.9 billion in combined 2013 revenues and collectively employed 22,000 people. Compared with last year’s list, the total combined revenue of the 2014 winning companies grew by a dramatic 53%.
“The companies that made it onto our list this year reflect the continued resourcefulness of women-led businesses,” said Marsha Firestone, Ph.D., president and founder of WPO. “We saw production soaring, with an average revenue growth of 203% from 2009 to 2013. Not only is the financial growth of these companies impressive, it shows that women entrepreneurs are making inroads in non-traditional businesses, such as information technology and transportation. The growth of these women-led companies is particularly impressive as the world economic recovery struggles to gain traction. Privately held U.S. companies on average ended 2013 with annual sales growth of 5.4%, the slowest rate of sales growth since 2009,” Dr. Firestone added.
For the first time since its inception, the 2014 50 Fastest was opened to applicants on a global level, resulting in two international businesses in the top ten. Participating companies were ranked according to a sales growth formula that combines percentage and absolute growth. To be qualified for the ranking, businesses are required to be privately held, woman-owned/led companies with annual revenue of at least $500,000 by year end 2008.
