Only translation, interpretation, contact center and e-Learning provider to be included in prestigious list for 2nd year in a row
DALLAS, TX – December 5, 2016 – Akorbi was ranked as the 33rd fastest-growing company in the Dallas area (up 13 spots from its #46 ranking in 2015) at SMU Cox’s 26th Annual Dallas 100 Awards ceremony on November 29th. For the second year in a row, Akorbi was the only translation, interpretation, contact center and e-Learning provider to be recognized in the impressive list of fast growth companies, which spanned just about every industry. Hundreds of entrepreneurs, community leaders and business executives were part of the prestigious event, which took place at the Omni Dallas hotel.
Since being founded in 2003 by Azam and Claudia Mirza, Akorbi’s revenues have soared. Earlier this year, the company competed with the fastest-growing companies across the U.S. and secured the #501 spot on the 2016 Inc. 5000 with 758% growth in the last three years. The Women Presidents’ Organization also ranked it as the #12 fastest-growing woman-owned/led company globally.
Akorbi’s impressive growth has been largely due to the launch of a wide range of multilingual business services (such as staffing, contact centers and e-Learning), which support clients around the world. The company’s impressive client base includes many government agencies and Fortune 500 companies.
Annually, SMU Cox ranks the top 100 Dallas entrepreneurial companies based on sales growth during a specific period of time. These companies must be privately-held and based in the Dallas Metroplex. This year, SMU Cox looked for a high percentage in sales growth from 2013-2015 as the main criteria for the Dallas 100. Akorbi’s impressive 758% growth in recent years makes the company highly deserving of this recognition.
“It’s an honor to be recognized among so many impressive and fast-growing companies in the Dallas area,” said Azam Mirza, President of Akorbi. “We are incredibly grateful for the support of our community, SMU Cox, as well as our outstanding team, which works tirelessly to serve our clients and distinguish Akorbi in such highly competitive industries.”
