The Execu|Search Group is proud to announce that we have been named to Inc. magazine’s 36th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies! The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and mid-sized businesses.
This is the third consecutive year that Execu|Search has made the list, and of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction have made the list more than once. Only one in five have made the list three times.
“We are honored to be named to the Inc. 5000 for the third consecutive year,” says Edward Fleischman, CEO of The Execu|Search Group. “Our growth over the past 32 years wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our dedicated team. Upon walking into any one of our offices, you immediately see people who are hard at work, but more importantly, passionate about what they are doing. This type of energy has been integral to our success and I’m excited to see where it takes us.”
The 2017 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a three-year average growth of 481%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years. The list is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2013 to 2016. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2013. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2016.
“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
