Bellevue’s MOSAIC Rehabilitation Inc. was named to Inc. magazine’s 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000, which highlights the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
Owner Andrea Duffield says the process includes submitting financial information to be vetted by an independent certified public accountant.
“I didn’t think we’d actually make it,” Duffield says to 425 Business. “But it was exciting to hear.”
Duffield says the honor brings mixed emotions because her clinic offers services to children and families with special needs.
“It would be much better if there weren’t children with special needs,” Duffield says. “But it’s also nice to be able to provide them with opportunities to succeed.”
MOSAIC Rehabilitation added 35 jobs in the past three years, and has grown 62 percent during the same time period. The business’ revenue increased from $2.1 million in 2010 to $3.4 million in 2013.
Duffield says being named to the list motivates her to keep improving and moving the business forward.
She recently was a nominee for the Nellie Cashman Award, which judges women business owners on their entrepreneurial spirit, ethics and community spirit, financial management skill, and the difficulty and risk they have overcome.
Other nominees for the award include Jill Blankenship of Frontline Call Center, Niki McKay of Blue Danube Productions, Makaylaa Powers of Visiting Angels, and Libby Wagner of Libby Wagner & Assoc.
The Nellie Cashman Award will be presented Thursday at Four Seasons Hotel Seattle.
