The Execu|Search Group is excited to announce that we have been named to Inc. magazine’s 35th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies! The 2016 Inc. 5000 highlights the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses.
“We are honored to be named to the Inc. 5000 for the second consecutive year,” says Edward Fleischman, CEO of The Execu|Search Group. “Our growth is something that I’m very proud of and I know that it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our dedicated team. As the job market has evolved, our employees have ensured that our organization has adapted to it, which has allowed us to remain dedicated to the mission our firm was founded upon over 30 years ago: to provide leading employers with the highest caliber talent while maintaining our commitment to integrity, honesty, and responsiveness.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2012 to 2015. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2012. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent–not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies–as of December 31, 2015.
The 2016 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive group in the list’s history. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. By reaching approximately $130 million in annual revenue and increasing our headcount by 21% in 2015, our firm was able to meet the magazine’s prestigious qualifications for the list.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great—usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows.”
The Inc. 5000 is a list of the fastest-growing private companies in the nation. Started in 1982, this prestigious list of the nation’s most successful private companies has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success. The Inc. 5000 Conference & Awards Ceremony is an annual event that celebrates their remarkable achievements. The event also offers informative workshops, celebrated keynote speakers, and evening functions.
