The Women Presidents’ Organization (WPO), in partnership with American Express, released the ninth annual ranking of the 50 Fastest-Growing Women-Owned/Led Companies. The 50 Fastest generated a combined $4.96 billion in 2015 revenues (mean of $99.2 million) and collectively employed 44,744 in 2015 (mean of 1,028).  Anserteam has been named on this prestigious list 3 out of the past 4 years.

Anserteam Workforce Solutions is the only WBENC-Certified alliance of staffing companies serving all of North America.  Anserteam was started by a group of independently-owned staffing company partners in 2004.  As an international managed service provider, it serves companies with multiple geographic needs in the technology, manufacturing, accounting/finance, healthcare suppliers, food service, hospitality, industrial, call center and government sectors. Anserteam suppliers have over 900 branch locations producing over $2.2 billion in sales, and currently serves between 1,100 and 1,500 locations each week in North America. Anserteam is the only company of its kind in the United States and Canada and is headed by President, Natalie Davis-Runyan, an experienced national staffing executive. Natalie and her staff are headquartered in Dallas, Texas.

“This year’s 50 Fastest list represents our most diverse ranking ever, with an immense geographic reach covering 20 states and one international winner in Turkey, as well as industries ranging from energy efficiency services to cybersecurity and engineering,” said Marsha Firestone, Ph. D., president and founder of the WPO. “We are once again so very pleased to partner with American Express in paying tribute to these influential women and recognizing the vital role that women-owned/led companies have in boosting the economy and enhancing overall job growth.”

“According to our recent State of Women-Owned Businesses report, the number of women-owned firms grew at a rate of five times faster than the national average since the recession,” said Susan Sobbott, president, Global Commercial Payments, American Express.  “We are thrilled to showcase the successes of these fifty honorees in order to inspire other women to build high-growth businesses.”

Each of the honored business owners will be offered a congratulatory prize from American Express.
