The Execu|Search Group is proud to announce that we have been named to Inc. Magazine’s annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious 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 businesses.
We were ranked #2,170 on the 2021 Inc. 5000, with a three-year revenue growth of 199%. This is the fourth year Execu|Search has been included. Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction has made the list more than once.
“Given the unprecedented challenges of 2020, we are especially honored to be part of the Inc. 5000,” says Larry Dolinko, CEO of The Execu|Search Group. “Every member of our team has proved to be resilient and flexible. They’ve seamlessly adapted to new working environments, while continuing to address our clients’ own workforce challenges and evolving hiring needs. From staffing urgent COVID projects to fulfilling core business needs, it’s been all hands on deck. Everyone has exceeded goals and expectations, and the teamwork has been inspiring. I couldn’t be more proud of the entire organization and all the important work we have done over the past year.”
Among the 5,000 honorees, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543%, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years. The list is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2017 to 2020. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2017.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
