(WPO) announced that Tribal Tech, LLC (Tribal Tech) has earned a ranking of #17 in the 9th annual list of fastest growing women-owned/led companies for 2016.  This is the first time Tribal Tech appears on this prestigious list, which includes companies that generated a combined $4.96 billion in revenues and collectively employed 44,744 in 2015.

Entry into this exclusive club is limited to companies that are privately held, women-owned/led and generated at least $500,000 in annual revenue as of January 1, 2011.  The list was announced at the WPO’s 2016 International Conference held in Baltimore, Maryland from April 8-10, 2016.  WPO is a non-profit membership organization for women presidents of multimillion-dollar companies. The members of WPO take part in professionally facilitated peer advisory groups in order to bring the “genius out of the group” and accelerate the growth of their businesses.

According to Tribal Tech, LLC President & CEO Vicki Vasques, “I am excited that a highly reputable organization such as WPO is recognizing Tribal Tech as one of the fastest growing companies for women this year.  I want to offer a tremendous thank you to Tribal Tech staff and to the clients we are proud to serve that contributed significantly to our growth.”

Tribal Tech’s work includes prime contracts with several agencies of the U.S. government to provide grants administration, training and technical support to underserved communities.  The work addresses complex issues such as historical trauma, bullying, youth suicide and many other behavioral health concerns.

The guiding principles of “People, Performance and Partnership” at Tribal Tech embody an environment where employees are empowered and can flourish, and clients may fully benefit from Tribal Tech’s specialized capabilities.  It is this spirit of collaboration and cooperation that enables Tribal Tech to become an important conduit to advancing the cause of a population in crisis.
