Jeff Williams at TBJ Fast 50Congratulations to our team at Clinipace Worldwide! This marks the fifth year in a row we have been included in the list of the Triangle Business Journal’s Fast 50 Awards, and we consider it a great honor!

The annual list showcases the fastest-growing private companies in the Raleigh-Durham area. The Fast 50 winners were selected and ranked based on a formula that counts revenue growth and profitability in the preceding three years (2011-2013). The numbers are crunched and analyzed by PricewaterhouseCoopers, a Fast 50 partner.

In honor of the 22nd annual Fast 50 Awards, the Triangle Business Journal took a look back at past first-place finishers to see how they’ve fared since receiving that prominent recognition. Here’s what they shared about Clinipace:

“Morrisville-based CRO Clinipace has certainly been busy after nabbing the No. 1 spot on the Fast 50 list in 2011. In 2012, the company acquired Irvine, California-based Paragon Biomedical in an effort to expand its services and geographic footprint. Clinipace also raised $9 million in fall 2012. And after raising an additional $3 million in early 2014, the company added another 120 workers when it purchased Pan-Asian CRO, Choice Pharma. In October 2014, Clinipace raised another $4 million in a debt offering. The company employs about 60 Triangle staffers and about 600 employees worldwide.”
