CHICAGO, August 15, 2023 – Inc. revealed today that Vaniam Group ranks within the 2023 Inc. 5000,” the magazine’s annual list of the 5000 fastest-growing private companies in America. This marks the fourth consecutive year that Vaniam Group has qualified for this prestigious honor.  

“I am humbled and forever grateful to our teams for making this recognition possible,” said Deanna B. van Gestel, Vaniam Group’s founder and CEO. “Our sustained revenue growth is the happy byproduct of our teams’ relentless pursuit of excellence across so many factors, including client service, high-science communications, connectivity across the medical community, and digital engagement.”

Jennifer Buffington Herzog, Vaniam Group’s President, added: “Vaniam Group is fueled by a passion to help biopharmaceutical innovators and healthcare providers come together to improve patient care, and we will continue to find new ways to help them do so. With growth comes new opportunities to innovate.”

Being ranked among the Inc. 5000 for the fourth consecutive year is the latest in a series of industry recognitions. Vaniam Group has been named to Inc.’s list of “Best Workplaces” for each of the past two years. Also, after a rigorous assessment of the company’s leadership team, finances, values, practices, and people, the Tugboat Institute recently renewed Vaniam Group’s status as a Certified Evergreen® organization. In addition, Medical Marketing & Media named Vaniam Group as a finalist for its 2023 Independent Agency of the Year award, which will be unveiled in October.

Companies on the 2023 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2019 to 2022. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2019. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2022. The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges.
