WillowTree, Inc., a top consumer and enterprise app development company, announced it has been named for the fourth year in-a-row on the Inc. 5000 list, Inc. Magazine’s exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.

The list represents the most comprehensive look at one of the most important segments of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.

“WillowTree is honored to be included on the Inc. 5000 for the fourth year in a row,” said Tobias Dengel, CEO of WillowTree. “The rapid and continued growth we’re seeing as a company not only results from the increasing demand for mobile app development services--which are on track to grow at least five times faster than internal IT organizations’ at large enterprises can deliver them--but also from the quality of the software we consistently deploy for our clients.”

“We’re very proud of the team we’ve built here at WillowTree, and for making it a fourth time onto Inc.’s list,” said Michael Prichard, CTO and Founder of WillowTree. “We couldn’t have done it without the trust our clients and partners place in us, and we thank them for continuing to do so on a daily basis. It’s a very exciting time to be a part of our company, especially as more and more organizations across sectors and industries realize the enormous potential of apps and connected devices when it comes to engaging their workforces and customers in meaningful, value-adding ways. We’re looking forward to many more years of exciting projects and continued growth here at WillowTree.”

The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 18 to September 22) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $205 billion, generating 647,000 jobs over the past three years. 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 http://www.inc.com/inc5000.

"The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident."

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 21 through 23, 2015 in Orlando. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Marcus Lemonis, host of the CNBC show “The Profit,” Robert Herjavec, one of the main "sharks" on ABC-TV’s “Shark Tank,” KIND Founder and CEO Daniel Lubetzky, and Co-Founder of Goodshop.com JJ Ramberg.
