Akorbi Ranked as the Largest Woman-Owned Language Service Provider in the United States


Plano, Texas, August 2020 — Akorbi, a US-based group of companies specializing in language, technology, and global workforce solutions, has earned several impressive rankings this year, making the company the largest privately owned, woman-owned language service provider (LSP) in the US. The company experienced 40% organic growth in revenue from 2017 to 2019, and continues to expand its footprint globally, including several locations in Western and Eastern Africa, India, and its newest nearshore multilingual contact center in Pereira, Colombia.

Akorbi, led by CEO and co-founder Claudia Mirza, is thrilled to be ranked #29, #35, and #27 in the world by the Common Sense Advisory (CSA), Nimdzi Insights, and Slator, respectively, in the LSP industry. Akorbi has maintained a top 100 ranking for three years in a row by the CSA; and for two consecutive years, the company has ranked #11 on their North American list. Adding to this impressive track record in 2020, Akorbi was also listed as the fastest-growing Language Service Provider based on the Women Presidents’ Organization’s (WPO’s) “50 Fastest Growing Women-Owned/Led Companies” rankings.

On the company’s recent growth, Azam Mirza, Akorbi’s president and co-founder says, “It is easy to grow a business quickly when you have private equity supporting you. What makes the Akorbi Group of Companies unique is its impressive organic growth and financial performance while remaining 100 percent privately owned. Looking to the future, while continuing to focus on financial controls and sustainability, we plan to assess possible acquisitions while increasing the size and reach of our strategic sales team.”

Akorbi’s president said despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the company has been able to pivot successfully and as needed to continue to support clients’ evolving needs for interpretation, localization, workforce solutions, and multilingual contact center support. These rankings prove Akorbi’s ability to adapt and partner successfully with clients to provide relevant solutions for today’s economy.

When asked about the key to Akorbi’s success, Claudia Mirza said, “During this uncertain time, I have been exceptionally grateful for our executive team, especially our female leadership who work tirelessly to support our clients and bring in the success we are seeing this year. I am also grateful for my business partner, Azam [Mirza], who continues to support and share my vision for Akorbi which always included dedicating ourselves to job creation and the economic development of women around the world.”

As a top-ranked member of the multibillion-dollar global language services industry, Akorbi is one of only a few women-owned LSPs operating successfully in the global market. Even with competition from industry superagencies, Akorbi continues to achieve year-over-year revenue growth.
