Paragon on list of Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies
Paragon is proud to be named as one of America's fastest-growing private companies from 2015! In our 25th year of operation serving the global community with expert language services, Paragon was in good company within the annual Inc. Magazine’s 5000 list. Rankings are determined based on factors that include revenue and job growth. Paragon has earned its spot among some of the country’s best and most successful businesses thanks to 225% growth in sales.
“Our performance is driven by our loyal clients and dedicated team of linguists and staff, and would not be possible without their contributions,” stated Hanne Mintz, Paragon’s Founder and CEO. “Inc. Magazine has now validated Paragon’s focus on excellence at every level of our work and our dedication to sustainable, long-term growth.”
This past holiday season Paragon donated to the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation on the behalf of all of our wonderful clients who have partnered with us over the years. Mesothelioma holds a special place in the hearts of the Paragon team as it has affected our family directly with the loss of Hanne's son, who succumbed to the disease years ago.
The Meso Foundation is the only non-profit organization with a sole focus on ending mesothelioma and the suffering caused by asbestos, by funding research and offering education and support for patients and their families.
The Race for Success Educational Foundation is a nonprofit entity set up to help public, private, and charter schools come together and raise funds for education. The proceeds from the Race for Success 5k benefit the local schools in Westchester, Playa Vista, and Playa del Rey.
This event has raised funds each year to save programs that would have otherwise been cut due to declining budgets. Each year our schools face financial hardships and must find ways to raise more funds just to maintain existing programs and staffing levels. Specific allocation of funds is at the discretion of each school’s Parent Teachers Organization.
