Firm Announces Tripling of Annual Revenues Over Last Five Years
MCLEAN, Virginia, July 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Ridge Partners, the management consulting firm focused exclusively on helping companies accelerate profitable revenue growth, announced they achieved a significant milestone in the first half of 2018. Jim Corey, Managing Partner, noted, "Our firm had a very strong first half of 2018, including serving our 500th client since our 2002 founding.

These accomplishments illustrate the breadth of our global client experience. Our firm now serves clients with personnel located in fifteen U.S., European and Australian cities."
In discussing reasons for the exceptional growth, Corey said, "With our sole focus on helping accelerate revenue growth, we are addressing the highest priority issue for CEOs and investors".

To address the CEO's need to accelerate revenue growth, Corey said "Blue Ridge Partners now works in four primary service areas – growth strategy, commercial excellence (sales and marketing), pricing and M&A transaction support.
