West Monroe Named to Crain's 2011 Fast Fifty

West Monroe Partners, a full-service business and technology consultancy, today announced that it has been named to Crain’s Fast Fifty, a list of the 50 fastest-growing companies in Chicago published annually by Crain’s Chicago Business. 

Founded in 2002, West Monroe Partners has grown to a nearly $43 million consultancy by guiding clients through projects that fundamentally transform the way they do business. West Monroe Partners caters primarily to middle-market companies that often are underserved by larger consultancies but also works with many Fortune 500 clients. In nine years, it has established seven offices in the United States and Canada; built a team of more than 250 people, including 177 in Chicago; and served more than 300 clients.

“One of the biggest keys to West Monroe Partners’ consistent growth is our ability to remain relevant to our clients and focused on helping them adapt efficiently to a changing business reality—whether that means significant new regulatory, competitive, or market demands,” said Dean Fischer, the company’s president and CEO and one of its founders. “Doing so has enabled us to realize growth in all facets of our business; not just in certain sectors.”

This is West Monroe Partners’ third time on the Crain’s Fast Fifty list during its nine years in business. Crain’s previously recognized the firm as one of the region’s fastest growing enterprises in 2008 and 2009. West Monroe Partners also was named to the Inc. 5000 in 2008. It has been included in lists of the top companies for which to work nationally by Consulting Magazine and Vault Inc.; in Chicago by Crain’s, the Chicago Tribune and the National Association of Business Resources; and in Seattle by Seattle Business Monthly.

To identify its Fast Fifty list, Crain’s evaluated companies with an inception date on or before December 31, 2005; with headquarters in the six-county area (Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will) as of December 31, 2010; and with 2010 revenue of at least $20 million. The publication required financial statements or tax returns and enlisted an outside accounting firm to assist with verifying the financial information.
