Cardno ranked #1 on 2013 US "hot firm" list

Cardno has been confirmed as the fastest growing engineering and environmental consulting firm in North America for the third consecutive year.

We secured the #1 ranking on the 2013 Zweig Letter Hot Firm List, which ranks companies within the United States and Canada according to their three-year growth rate in gross revenue.

The list has been compiled since 2000 by ZweigWhite, a leader in enhancing business performance for architecture, engineering, and environmental consulting firms.

Half of the ranking is based on percentage growth, with the other 50 per cent on dollar growth.

Cardno Managing Director Andrew Buckley said the top ranking was the result of a diverse strategy of combining carefully planned mergers and acquisitions with organic growth.

“Our success in the region is built on offering our clients a number of services across different markets,” he said. “We also targeted complementary businesses with new geographical and skills coverage and a good cultural fit.”

In 2012/13 the company added merger partners Cardno MM&A, Cardno EM-Assist and Cardno ChemRisk to its American operations.

Based on proforma revenue as of December 2012, the American market represented 53 per cent of Cardno’s global revenue.
