Fission Consulting Claims Spot on Inc. Magazine’s List of Midwest Region’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

The recognition highlights Fission’s growth, deep domain expertise and proven results across industries

CHICAGO, IL / ACCESSWIRE / April 12, 2022 / Fission Consulting, a leading IT consulting firm serving private equity clients, has officially secured a spot on the third annual Inc. 5000 Regionals Midwest list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest growing private companies headquartered in Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

Fission was ranked #44 in last month’s Inc. Magazine list, which provides a unique look at the most successful companies in the Midwest’s most dynamic segment – independent small businesses.

“This is not only a recognition of the incredible talent we have at Fission – and the hard work our team has put in since we started almost five years ago – but also a validation of the fact that our approach is working,” said Fission founder and CEO, Brandon Lage. “We remain insanely focused on guiding our private equity clients through mergers, acquisitions and divestitures – while maximizing their returns and IT efficiencies.”

Between 2018 and 2020, the 144 private companies on Inc.’s list experienced an average growth rate of 147 percent, and in 2020 alone they added 19,821 jobs and nearly $11.7 billion to the Midwest region’s economy.

“This year’s Inc. 5000 regional winners represent one of the most extraordinary and exciting lists of America’s exceptional growth companies,” said Scott Omelianuk, Inc’s editor-in-chief – all of which have had an outsized impact on the economy. Remember their names and follow their lead. These are the companies you will be hearing from for years to come.”

About Fission Consulting

Headquartered in Chicago, Fission Consulting helps private equity clients leverage IT to maximize returns from their portfolio companies. Maximizing returns starts with proper due diligence, as any deal can hide significant technology debt. Also, IT organizations are rarely large enough to support the future NewCo.

However, Fission’s team has conducted hundreds of technology due diligence reviews for companies valued at $50 million to over $50 billion. And once the deal is in place, the real work of the breakup begins. Outsourcing an ERP system has the potential to cause significant business disruption. Fission’s expert consultants ensure that the go-live becomes a “non-event”. Finally, IT investments can be made during the hold period to further improve operations and prepare for exit.

All in all, Fission invests in long-term relationships with customers because there is value in the overall investment. The right carve-out strategy and continuous improvement enable a clean exit and maximum returns for investors.
