Artlin Consulting Recognized in Consulting Magazine’s 2018 List of Fastest Growing Firms

FAIRFAX, VA — Artlin Consulting ranked 16th in Consulting magazine’s 2018 list of Fastest Growing Firms.  Consulting magazine produces an annual ranking of the consulting industry’s top performers in terms of revenue growth. Firms of all sizes from a variety of sectors are honored as the future of the industry.

“This recognition and award – Consulting’s Fastest Growing Firms—is aimed squarely at these up-and-coming firms that all too often fly below the radar because they are not the biggest or the best-known firms. We want to shine a light on these firms because they are the future of consulting”, says Joseph Kornik, Publisher & Editor-in-Chief- of Consulting magazine.

Artlin achieved an impressive growth rate of 263 percent between December 31, 2014 and December 31, 2017. President & CEO, Robin Tomlin, attributes her firm’s exceptional growth to Artlin’s high-caliber consultants.

“Without great people, we would not be experiencing this kind of success. This recognition is validation of all the hard work we have done over the past few years,” says Tomlin.

In all, 65 firms qualified for this year’s ranking, averaging a growth rate of 198 percent.

2018 has brought continued success for Artlin, both on existing contracts and new bid wins with clients such as the Department of Defense. Tomlin expresses an equally optimistic outlook for her firm in 2019. “We see opportunity in any situation where we can utilize our agility and experience to solve a client need,” she says, “and we are excited to branch out into other federal areas.”
