User Centric was recognized for the fourth year in a row* on
Inc. 5000 List of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies for its constant
and continued growth. User Centric was
the only user experience research and design firm ranked in the Midwest for
2010. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important
segment of the economy—America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs.
“The leaders of the companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have
figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the
Great Depression,” said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. “The 2010 Inc. 5000
showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs.”
User Centric contributes its growth to the high percentage of repeat business. "To have clients be 'active' clients for years really makes a statement of the consistent high standards and outstanding consultant support that User Centric provides. By exceeding client expectations, we not only improve the project outcome, we also develop lasting relationships that make future project work even more successful," says Pamela Stoffregen-Gay, Marketing Manager of User Centric.

The 2010 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage
revenue growth when comparing 2006 to 2009. To qualify, companies must have
been founded and generating revenue by June 30, 2006. Additionally, they had to
be based in the United States, privately held, for profit, and independent—not
subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2009. (Since
then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The
minimum revenue required for 2006 is $80,000; the minimum for 2009 is $2
million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for
subjective reasons. The top 10 percent of companies on the list constitute the
