"Longnecker & Associates is tremendously excited to be named one of Consulting® magazine's Fastest Growing Firms! It is a defining moment for any consulting firm, and we strive to continue to provide the best executive compensation consulting advice to our clients, so they will continue to refer us" says Chris Crawford, President of Longnecker & Associates.

When asked about factors contributing to the firm's rapid growth, Crawford said:

"There are multiple factors leading to the firm's growth, but three of the most notable are one, winning a landmark case on reasonable compensation, that allowed the firm to diversify into a separate service line three years ago. Two, very happy clients aggressively selling us to their peers; three, using the downturn in the energy market as an opportunity to launch an restructuring advisory service line three years ago."
