Rochester, N.Y. – Continental Service Group, Inc., d/b/a ConServe, has been named to the annual Inc. 5000 list for the sixth time - the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list spotlights America's independent small businesses and conveys a unique perspective of the most successful companies within the U.S. economy's most dynamic segment. A ranking on this prestigious list has become a symbol of entrepreneurial success.
"ConServe is proud to once again be recognized on the Inc. 5000 list as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the nation" states Rich Klein, Chief Financial Officer at ConServe. He continues: "Our organization is committed to doing the right thing, at the right time, the right way, and our team of talented professionals embrace the concept that when we work as a team, together we can accomplish anything. Our passion for ethics, compliance and Client satisfaction, strengthened by our innovative recovery solutions and state-of-the-art technology, provides both our consumers and our valued Clients with superior performance via the ConServe Advantage®.

The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. is the most competitive crop in the list's history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
"The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That's one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails."
