ALEXANDRIA, Va. (August 17, 2021)

Inc. magazine announces that TorchLight Hire ranks No. 4,521 of the nation’s 5,000 fastest-growing private companies of 2021. TorchLight Hire is a leading marketing and communications search and staffing firm serving the greater Washington, D.C. area. Also, this marks the fifth year Inc. has ranked on this distinguished list– something very few Inc. 5000 companies have accomplished.

The Inc. 5000 list

TorchLight, headquartered in Alexandria, Va., joins an elite group of companies nationwide on this distinguished annual list. Companies like Zappos, Intuit, Patagonia, and many others. This year’s list contains companies that have been particularly resilient given 2020’s challenging business climate.

TorchLight’s revenue has grown an incredible 1,500% since opening its doors in 2021. View TorchLight’s rankings.

A large portion of the company’s growth comes from our top-quality, personalized service and long-standing relationships with clients and candidates.

TorchLight’s values and growth

“Given the impact of COVID on hiring, we are particularly proud to be included on the list,” said founder Heidi Parsont. “Our passion for matching leading D.C. area employers with top marketing and communications professionals fuels our growth. Our candidates exceed expectations, especially during this highly competitive job market.”

The Washington Business Journal has also deemed this WBENC-certified woman-owned small business a Washington “Best Place to Work.” TorchLight’s notoriety comes from its valuing flexibility, encouraging lifelong learning, and supporting working women in all their roles. We do this all while experiencing fast-track growth.
