NEW YORK, August 14, 2019– Inc. Magazine today revealed that United Services Group is No. 4,718 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, 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. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Chief Executive Officer Josh Armstrong was ecstatic about being a part of the Inc. 5000 list. “This is a tremendous honor for our organization as a whole. As a young company, we couldn’t have done this without our employees and our customers. We are thankful for the great customers that have given us an opportunity to perform work for them. It shows that we are committed to our company mission to provide service excellence on every project we perform. As an organization, we stand behind that commitment and it has shown in our growth.
Additionally, we couldn’t have done this without the tremendous team we put around us. Without the hard work they put in, we wouldn’t be here. I personally want to thank every person who has been part of our organization. Because of you, we have shown our industry that quality and safe services are the standard they can except from United Services Group.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 20) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc.editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
