For the third straight year, Forbes has included global consulting and digital services provider ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI) on its annual list of “America’s Best Management Consulting Firms.” The list recognizes the world’s top companies by industry based on feedback from clients and peers.

“Recognition by Forbes is a great testament not only to our incredible team, but also to the long-standing relationships we have built with our clients, peers and partners,” said Sudhakar Kesavan, ICF chairman and CEO. “We are fully invested in sustaining, building and growing these relationships and continuing to find innovative solutions to our industry’s hardest challenges.”

Forbes compiled the list with Statista, an analytics company, by distributing two surveys among consulting-firm partners and business executives across various industries who have been clients of consulting firms. Each group named the firms they held in high regard and would recommend to others. ICF received a disproportionately high number of recommendations, earning the company a spot on the prestigious list of 200-plus companies.

ICF provides cutting-edge consulting and marketing services to public and private sector clients around the world. Experts in planning, designing and implementing transformative projects and campaigns across a range of critical industries, ICF thrives on solving the most complex challenges.
