The list has, over the years, included companies such as Microsoft, Facebook, Jamba Juice, and Pandora.
“Being named to Inc’s 500|5000 List of fastest growing private companies is an honor,” said President and CEO, Alan Krenke. “To have made the list three years in a row, through three of the toughest years this economy has seen, is quite an accomplishment for Quest CE.”
Quest CE provides financial professionals with industry leading compliance solutions to help firms adapt to the rapidly evolving regulatory environment of the financial services industry. In addition to offering Providership Administration and insurance continuing education (CE) for professionals holding insurance licenses and professional designations, Quest CE also provides a complete spectrum of compliance training solutions including the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) annually required Firm Element Training for registered representatives.
“While many competitors have restructured or downsized, we have continued to experience rapid, dramatic growth,” said COO Linda Krenke. “We believe this growth strongly supports our affirmation that working in our clients’ best interest is always in our own best interest.”
For Quest CE, this past year has been one of growth, with the expansion of their headquarters, team and clientele, and the continued implementation of industry leading technology, products and services. Quest CE will be recognized for their achievements in Phoenix, Arizona this coming October at the Inc. 500|5000 Conference and Awards Ceremony, where the partners will accept the award.
