K&A Ranks on 2023 Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

NEW YORK, August 15, 2023 – Inc. revealed today that K&A Engineering Consulting P.C. ranks No. 1740 on the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“We at K&A are honored and humbled to have been recognized on the Inc. 5000 list," said the company's founder and CEO, Purna Kharel. "The credit for this accomplishment goes to our enthusiastic team members and loyal clients who trust us and treat us as strategic partners. As K&A grows, we stand by our unwavering commitment to enriching the lives of our clients, employees, and communities by upholding our core values of Employee First, Client Centricity, Servant Leadership, and demonstrating our commitment to K&A Cares.”

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.

For complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, location, and other criteria, go to www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, available on newsstands beginning Tuesday, August 23.

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”

They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2022.

As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to four decimal places.
