Each year, the Puget Sound Business Journal announces its list of the 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in Washington. We're happy to announced that this year we came in at number 14 on the list... which is not too bad for a company that has maintained record sales growth for eight years and running.
Tableau has made a number of "fastest-growing" lists in the last couple of years. Most notably, we were named by industry analyst firms Gartner and IDC as the fastest growing business intelligence company in 2011. There's something nice, though, about being included in a list of all types of companies from different industries and backgrounds in your state. It's also not that common for a company from our little neighborhood of Fremont, fondly called by locals "The Center of the Universe" to get such a recognition.
Gordon Prouty, Publisher of Puget Sound Business Journal, had this to say about this year's list, "The companies that make this list are, by definition, among the most dynamic in our region. Especially this year, making membership on this elite list is all the more impressive, and these companies are showing all of us what qualities it takes to grow in challenging times."
Thanks, Gordon. And thanks to the 9,000 companies and tens of thousands of people using Tableau Public who have made what we do such rewarding work.
