Aspirant Named a Fast50 Company Three Years Running


For the third year running, Aspirant has been recognized by the Pittsburgh Business Times as a Fast 50 Company for 2023. This award recognizes privately held companies in the Pittsburgh region that have shown the strongest growth over the prior three years. Aspirant’s 2.5x revenue increase between 2020 and 2022 earned them this distinction.

Mike McClaine, Aspirant CEO, shared “Aspirant is proud to be part of Fast 50 again this year. Our continued success has been driven by our outstanding team and our ability to create practical solutions for our clients that truly help them achieve their goals. This year, we have bolstered our technological capabilities as a Microsoft Solutions Partner, and just launched our full-service digital agency to help companies strengthen their brands and generate incremental revenue.”

Bill Kollitz, Managing Director of Marketing, noted “The capabilities now offered through the Aspirant Digital Agency are services we have already been providing to our clients. This runs the gamut across brand strategy, website design, content creation, and ongoing digital campaign management.”

Aspirant has expanded rapidly since its inception under the Newton Consulting name with just three employees and a single client in 2003. Over the subsequent twenty years, the firm has swelled to more than 200 employees and over 100 clients.

“We will continue to seek opportunities to offer additional services and add new partnerships,” added Tom Leeker, Chief Client Officer, “never at the risk of compromising the reputation we have built for exceeding client expectations.”

Pittsburgh Business Times will host a celebratory event on August 24 at the Westin Convention Center to honor all recipients. 

Aspirant partners with business leaders to implement practical solutions to their most critical strategic, technological, and talent-related challenges. Our collaborative teams apply industry and functional expertise to help clients achieve sustainable results. We also strive to make a meaningful impact in the community by raising awareness of domestic violence and supporting victims through our Connection of Hope program. For more information, contact
