Crosschq Ranks No. 7 on Inc. Magazine’s List of the Pacific Region’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

Crosschq’s Two-Year Revenue Growth Exceeded 1500% 

SAN FRANCISCO (March 6, 2024) - Inc. magazine today revealed that Crosschq is No.7 on its fourth annual Inc. 5000 Regionals’ Pacific list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this highly competitive regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Pacific economy’s most dynamic segment–its independent small businesses.  

“Winning a spot in Inc. Magazine’s top ten fastest-growing private companies in the most competitive U.S. region is further validation of how well Crosschq is serving its customers and overall market requirements,” said Michael Fitzsimmons, CEO of Crosschq. “We’re grateful to have earned this honor.”

Founded in 2018, Crosschq has developed the world's first Quality of Hire platform purpose-built to save talent acquisition teams time and money while helping them make better hires. Lauded by industry analysts as a frontrunner in the crowded HR technology category, Crosschq has been consistently recognized for its ability to deliver unprecedented value to enterprises by putting precision and predictability into the previously ambiguous talent acquisition function.

Fitzsimmons continued, “Prior to Crosschq, establishing quality of hire as a corporate KPI was an insurmountable yet highly sought-after objective. With Crosschq, quality of hire has been turned into a reliable, operational metric –encompassing a variety of existing and additional datasets – that helps predict job candidate fit. As a result, we’re able to optimize recruiter productivity, help organizations save money, and increase the likelihood of hiring high-impact employees.”

The companies on this list show a remarkable rate of growth across all industries in the Pacific region, which includes California, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, Alaska. Between 2020 and 2022, these 170 private companies had an average growth rate of 162.77 percent; by 2023, they’d also added 10,689 jobs and $5.5 billion to the region’s economy. 

“The honorees in our Inc. 5000 network are the Who’s Who of private companies. They’re energizing regional economies as they engineer the future of their industries. Learn who they are and what they do — they’ll be impacting things for a while,” said Eric Hagerman, Special Projects Editor at Inc. Media.
