2009-10-15 Stevie Awards for Women in Business Finalist 2009

PTS is One of Six Finalists Nationwide for a ‘Stevie’ Award for Women in Business in the Best Overall Service Business Category for Companies Up to 100 Employees

Conshohocken, PA, USA, October 15, 2009 – Pediatric Therapeutic Services (PTS), Inc. was announced as a finalist today in the 6th Annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business, an international competition recognizing the accomplishments of outstanding women executives, business owners, and the organizations they run. PTS was named in the competitive ‘Best Overall Service Business’ category for companies up to 100 employees.

PTS is competing against some of the finest businesses and brands in the country, including: APT, Inc. of Darien, CT; Benefit Express, LLC, of Arlington, IL; DRT Strategies, Inc., of Arlington, VA; Northbound LLC of Sunnyvale, CA; and VerticalResponse, of San Francisco, CA.

“Some of the other finalists are ‘household names,’ that’s for sure,” said PTS Managing Partner Diana Fongheiser. “To be considered along with a company like VerticalResponse, for example, is remarkable. But then again, our corporate staff and dedicated therapist network do some pretty incredible work themselves every day, for some pretty extraordinary kids.”

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are produced by the creators of the prestigious American Business Awards. The Stevies are widely considered to be the world's premier business awards. More than 1,100 nominations were submitted this year for consideration in 54 categories by organizations in Australia, Canada, China, Germany, India, Japan, South Korea, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the U.S.A.

“Achievements like this Stevie nomination are a wonderful thing,” said PTS Managing Partner Pam Hackett. “They’re a reflection of the achievements that some very special kids make in the classroom across the communities that PTS serves; they’re an indication of the trust that we’ve built with parents, and teachers and administrators; they’re a reinforcement that we’re on the right track; and they’re a reminder that we still have much work to do.”

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are governed by a Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors that features many leading women entrepreneurs and luminaries in business. They and their staffs will perform the final judging to determine the Stevie Award winners from among the Finalists.

The final results of the 6th annual competition will be announced at an awards dinner at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City on Friday, November 13. Tickets for the event are now on sale and can be purchased at www.stevieawards.com/women.

PTS, Inc. Ranks No. 4081 on the 2010 Inc. 5000 with Three-Year Sales Growth of 30%


Conshohocken, PA, USA, August 24, 2010 -- Inc. magazine today ranked Pediatric Therapeutic Services (PTS), Inc. No. 4081 on its fourth annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. Music website Pandora, convenience store chain 7-Eleven, Brooklyn Brewery, and Radio Flyer, maker of the iconic children’s red wagon, are among the prominent brands featured on this year’s list along with PTS.

“The leaders of the companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression,” said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. “The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs.”

“We are very excited to be selected to the Inc. 5000 for the fourth year in row,” said PTS Managing Partner Pam Hackett. “This kind of growth in the face of such a recession is truly a tribute to the hard work and dedication of our dynamic corporate staff and dedicated team of therapy professionals.”

The 2010 Inc. 5000, unveiled today on Inc.com, serves as a unique illustration of the profound changes taking place in the U.S. economy. The Government Services sector showed the biggest gain in terms of the number of companies on the list, up 33 percent from last year to 335 companies. Government Services was also the second-fastest-growing sector in terms of median revenue growth, posting a 202 percent gain over the 2006-2009 measuring period. More than half of these companies are based in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. The fastest-growing sector by median revenue growth was Real Estate, now just a tiny group of 38 young, small companies, which showed 231 percent median growth over the period. (There were 121 Real Estate firms on the inaugural Inc. 5000 in 2007.) Business Products & Services is the top industry by number of companies on the list (640) and total revenue ($80.7 billion), while Health is the biggest by total employment (287,726  jobs).

Pediatric Therapeutic Services was ranked No.108 in the Philadelphia Region, and No. 336 in the Health Industry nationally. Overall, the Philadelphia region ranked ninth out of all regions with 132 companies represented
 
“We have a passion for what we do,” said PTS Managing Partner Diana Fongheiser. “We serve children. They are our focus. It is because we go about our business with those children as our focus that enables us to continue to deliver services at such a high level. And the fact that the school districts we serve share our passion in this mission.”

Despite the fact that most of this year’s measuring period of 2006-2009 took place during the latest recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $321.6 billion, up more than 50 percent from last year. The effects of the recession are seen, however, in the median three-year growth rate, which dropped to 96 percent from last year’s 126 percent. This year’s Inc. 5000 employ a record 1.4 million people, up from one million on last year’s list. With unemployment remaining stubbornly high, policymakers and business leaders will do well to look to the Inc. 5000 companies for fresh ideas on achieving growth and creating jobs.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found on www.inc.com/5000.

Methodology

The 2010 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2006 to 2009. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by June 30, 2006. Additionally, they had to be based in the United States, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2009. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2006 is $80,000; the minimum for 2009 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. The top 10 percent of companies on the list constitute the Inc. 500, now in its 29th year.
