Tilson’s Continued Growth Earns Spot on the 2023 Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Companies for the 13th Consecutive Year

For Immediate Release

PORTLAND, ME (08/15/2023). Tilson, a national network development and information infrastructure professional services firm, secured its 13th consecutive spot on the annual Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in the United States with a three-year revenue growth of 86% percent. In the history of Inc. 5000, there have only been 25 companies that have made the list 13 times.

“It’s an honor to be featured on the Inc. 5000 list again. Our mission-driven team is the reason we can celebrate this success,” said Joshua Broder, Tilson’s CEO. “The past year brought tremendous change to our organization including significant increases in Tilson’s underground self-perform capabilities in Nevada and Arizona. Despite competitor layoffs, our team continues to grow due to our ability to pivot quickly meeting our customers’ where their needs are greatest. We’re hiring over 120+ open positions including fully remote positions available and a growing workforce in expanding areas including Wisconsin, Nevada, Arizona, Wyoming, and Idaho.” 

With over 1,100 employees in 48 states, Tilson is an organically grown national fiber and wireless network design-build firm that also provides consulting service for M&A technical due diligence and broadband consulting for state, tribal, and territory governments. This year, Tilson hired Trudi Fenster to lead the operations, strategy, and expansion of Tilson’s construction technology consulting practice, its longest-standing business unit, and the largest and most experienced team of construction business system implementers in the country. In 2019, Tilson spun out Tilson Infrastructure as a standalone company, now a national leader in utility pole and tower development, and long haul and campus fiber for lease back to telecom carriers and others.

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”

As an honoree of the Inc. 5000, Tilson shares this ranking with organizations including Microsoft, Intuit, Oracle, Zappos, Under Armour, Clif Bar, Pandora, Patagonia, and other notable alumni.
