Inc. magazine named managed IT services provider ImageQuest, LLC, to its 2021 Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
This is the second time ImageQuest has appeared on the list. ImageQuest previously made the Inc. 5000 in 2014. This year, ImageQuest achieved the rank of 3,962 with a three-year revenue growth percentage of 79 percent.
“Being named to the Inc 5000 list again truly honors our team’s hard work to serve our clients,” said Milton Bartley, Co-Founder, President & CEO of ImageQuest. “Our niche of serving regulated companies with best-in-class IT infrastructure, strong cybersecurity, and attentive IT compliance requires continuous focus on our clients’ needs.
“We strive to go beyond the vendor relationship to become our clients’ trusted IT partner. We want our clients to turn to us for IT guidance and advice, even if it’s outside of any signed contractual relationship,” Bartley said.
Bartley and investors Alan Sielbeck and Kent Wood founded ImageQuest in 2007 as a copier dealership. By 2010, Bartley saw a greater marketplace need for managed IT, data security, and assistance with data compliance requirements. ImageQuest pivoted to meet those needs, selling off its copier business in 2016 to focus solely on IT.
ImageQuest has grown steadily since, from a team of 12 in 2012 to approximately 50 employees anticipated by the end of 2021.
“We grow only as fast as our customers grow,” Bartley said. “We are careful to pick our clients – and our team members – to ensure we provide the attentive, prompt, and expert experience our clients expect.
“This is a huge honor for us, but it only sharpens our resolve to focus on our clients. We wouldn’t be here today without them.”
