Pinnacle Named to Inc 5000

Pinnacle Transplant Technologies is excited to announce that it has been named to the 2016 Inc. 5000 list, which was announced Thursday and recognizes some of the fastest-growing companies across the country as “superheroes of the U.S. economy,” according to its website. Pinnacle was one of more than 100 Arizona-based companies to earn the honor this year, alongside other homegrown success stories like WebPT, Trapp Technology, and Upward Projects (behind famous restaurants like Postino and Windsor).

“We are proud to be part of this exclusive cohort of businesses that are accelerating real growth for the local and national economy, creating jobs and that are making a global impact as well,” said CEO Russ Yelton.

“Through the visionary leadership of our team, the dedication of our skilled associates, and the purposeful innovation of our products, we have been able to achieve an impressive record of success. Our team truly makes the difference,” he added.

Pinnacle is a pioneer in regenerative medicine, having developed a catalog of innovative products that includes bone and tissue allografts available for transplantation into human recipients.

Pinnacle landed at #1590 on the list, with reported growth of more than 230% over a three-year period. The company also noted that it earned more than $13 million in revenue in 2015 and is now operating with more than 80 employees in its Phoenix headquarters and processing facility.
