Patina Solutions

Patina Named to Fastest-Growing Private Companies

For Fourth Consecutive Year, Inc. Magazine Recognizes Brookfield-based Patina Solutions as a Fastest-Growing Private Company
The company has experienced three-year sales growth of more than 200 percent.

Patina Solutions is a leading professional services firm that provides executive experience on demand,  Started in 1982, this prestigious list of the country’s most successful private companies has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success.

During the evaluation period from 2012 to 2015, Patina grew sales by over 200% and added 229 employees to its team. Due to consistent high growth since Patina’s founding in late 2008, the company has earned this honor every year since 2013, which was its first year of eligibility. Through organic growth and support from investors, Patina has opened offices in 14 locations serving clients throughout the country and around the world.

“I am proud that, for the fourth straight year, Patina has achieved a place on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America,” said Mike Harris, Chief Executive Officer of Patina. “Our future growth plans include increasing our sales force, opening additional offices, and as always, helping our clients accelerate their own success.”

The Inc. 5000 list represents the most successful companies within America’s dynamic segment of independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Microsoft, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names, gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000. The 2016 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.

“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.”

Headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Patina is the second-fastest growing Wisconsin-based company on the list in the human resources category and the 11th fastest-growing company in Wisconsin overall.
