LAUNCH Ranks No. 1621 on the 2020 Inc. 5000
With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 264%

Oak Brook, IL, August 12, 2020 Inc. magazine today revealed that LAUNCH Technical Workforce Solutions is No. 1621 on its annual Inc. 5000 List of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America. This ranking puts LAUNCH in the top one-third of companies listed. Since it started in 1982, this prestigious list has recognized the most successful privately held companies in the U.S. with incredible stories of growth. To qualify, companies would have to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent — not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies. Revenue used for qualification purposes was for the years 2016-2019.

Jean Rollo, LAUNCH President & COO, said, “We are excited to have this recognition to celebrate with our staff and our clients. LAUNCH has been on a tremendous growth trajectory since its inception, and it’s been quite a ride. 2020 has presented us with a new set of challenges, forcing us to transform our business and diversify into new areas. In time, this will set us up to be a stronger company with even more room to grow.”

Mike Guagenti, LAUNCH CEO, agreed, “We knew when we started the company that we wanted to do things differently. From day one, our clients responded, and we’ve continued to partner with them to consistently innovate based on their requirements. It was a great win for the team. While this year has been challenging, I know we will continue to focus on creating workforce solutions that solve the fluctuating labor needs of our clients, particularly in the aviation industry.”
