Charlotte, NC – PCI Group Inc., one of the nation’s leading providers of rapid outbound direct mail services for collection agencies and debt buyers, is continuing its streak as one of the fastest-growing companies. The company was just named to the Charlotte Business Journal’s “Fast 50” list. To qualify, PCI Group had to demonstrate both dollar and percentage growth during a three-year period based on the publication’s formula.

According to PCI Group President and CEO Chris Kropac, Jr., “When we made the strategic decision to relocate our company from Long Island, New York to the Charlotte area, it was with the intention of growing our business and contributing to the region’s economy. In a very short period, we have made major strides in both areas. We are proud to be among some of Charlotte’s most dynamic companies and hope to repeat our performance in the years to come.”

PCI’s placement on fast-growing company lists isn’t confined to regional programs. In 2008, PCI Group was ranked nationally among the INC. 5000, an annual listing of the nation’s fastest-growing companies. In its INC. 5000 profile, PCI Group’s growth was recorded at 91.5% and cited was its achievement in making a successful transition from a company founded in 1970 as a data-entry service bureau to what is now a premier di­rect mail service provider for the collection industry. Its growth and success were attributed to the company’s effective use of technology, specifically its innovative webtrak™ portal and the United States Postal Services’ (USPS) Intelligent Mail Barcode technology, which facilitate access to real-time mail delivery status, as well as human capital optimization and related cost savings.

Most recently, Kropac himself was honored with an award from the nation’s highest USPS officer, Postmaster General John E Potter. Kropac received the National Postal Customer Council (PCC) Award for “PCC Indus­try Member of the Year,” in recognition of his leadership on behalf of his industry and the postal community. That leadership has been evident at PCI, where he has been effective at leveraging leading-edge technologies to advance the direct mail process and related accuracy, delivery, mail quality, security and cost efficiencies.
