Portland, Ore. - The Portland Business Journal recognized Centerstance Inc. as one the Fastest-Growing Private 100 Companies, with a ranking of #13. Centerstance is a specialist in consultation, business technology strategies and project management based in Portland.

Centerstance earned its position on the prestigious list following an aggressive growth surge during the past three years. The company has achieved average year over year growth of 200 percent since 2004. This is Centerstance's first year on the Portland Business Journal list.

"We are honored to be recognized by the Portland Business Journal as one of the fastest growing companies in Oregon," said Arne Kainu, president of Centerstance. "The true recognition goes to our hard-working team at Centerstance. We have also been fortunate that our expertise in business transformation meshes with the needs of so many growing Northwest businesses."

The recognition from the Portland Business Journal is the most recent acknowledgement Centerstance has garnered for its explosive growth. In 2006 alone, Centerstance increased its Portland-based staff by 60 percent, and added more than 15 companies to its roster of IT and business consulting customers. Today, its customer base boasts many market leaders that are based in the Northwest, including Serena Software, Harry and David and Mentor Graphics.

Every year the Portland Business Journal ranks the top 100 companies in Oregon based on their percentage of revenue growth over the past year. The Fastest-Growing Private 100 Companies must be located in Oregon or Clark County, Washington and be a privately-held independent for-profit corporation, proprietorship or partnership. The company must also have had revenues of at least $500,000 in 2003 and have shown revenue growth over the past three years.
