MALVERN, PA, August 26, 2015 — Frontline Technologies, a provider of web-based tools for K-12 education, has been named to Inc. magazine’s list of America’s fastest-growing private companies. Frontline’s position on the Inc. 5000 list comes after rapid growth that saw the company nearly double in size over the last three years.

“Being recognized on the Inc. 5000 really brings home just how much we have accomplished since Frontline Technologies was founded in 1998,” said Managing Partner Roland Thompson. “As a company, we have experienced a period of explosive growth, and plan on maintaining this growth in the coming years.”

In May of 2014, Frontline Technologies received a significant investment from Insight Venture Partners, a private equity and venture capital firm. This investment acted as a springboard for the expansion of Frontline’s product portfolio, including the acquisition of several other companies in the education industry. As a result, the company has relocated its headquarters to a larger space and hired over a hundred new employees to support its momentum.

This is also the first year that Frontline was ranked on the Inc. 5000, amid what Inc. called the most competitive crop in the list’s history.

“In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”

Managing Partner Michael Blackstone attributes much of the company’s success to its commitment to maintaining a people-focused culture.

“I believe that this tremendous achievement is very much due to our belief in putting people first,” Blackstone said. “Our growth has not changed who we are, and we will continue to focus on providing an exceptional customer experience as well as making Frontline a great place to work.”
