The notable achievement puts BlackLine in an "exclusive club" of companies that have made the Inc. 5000 Honor Roll, including such leading organizations as Intuit, Jamba Juice, Microsoft, Pandora, Patagonia, Timberland, Under Armour and Zappos.

"Only a tiny fraction of the nation's companies have demonstrated such remarkably consistent high growth, particularly in the difficult economic environment of the past few years," said Eric Schurenberg, president and editor-in-chief, Inc. Magazine.  "This achievement truly puts BlackLine in rarefied company."
