(TRAVELERS REST, S.C.) Quality Business Solutions (QBS) was recently ranked #6 on the Grant Thornton South Carolina 100®. For over 30 years, Grant Thornton has saluted the top 100 private companies in South Carolina in the only ranking of the state’s largest privately held companies.

The South Carolina 100 is compiled under the direction of Mark Ballew, partner-in-charge of the Columbia Office of Grant Thornton, in cooperation with the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce. It is voluntary and companies are ranked based upon their net revenues for their most recently completed fiscal year. To qualify, companies must be privately held, headquartered in SC, and cannot be a subsidiary of another company.

“We are honored to be among those listed in the 2015 Grant Thornton South Carolina 100®” said Pamela Evette, QBS President and CEO. “I am a huge advocate for business in the state of South Carolina and the Grant Thornton 2015 rankings not only highlight companies making great strides in South Carolina, but also showcases growth in both revenues and employee numbers statewide.”

This award extends QBS’ growing list of international, national and local accolades. In the past two years, the company has been listed on the Inc. 5000 and recognized as one of the top performing companies and best places to work in South Carolina. Evette has also been honored as one of Inc. Magazine’s Impact 50 – a list of the nation’s top female business leaders based on growth – and as one of Enterprising Women magazine’s 2016 Enterprising Woman of the Year recipients.
