Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
Inc. magazine today revealed that Nolan & Associates is No. 3,714 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Companies on the list are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2017 to 2020.
The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“The Nolan team is honored to be featured in the Inc. 5000 list,” said Patrick Nolan, President, Nolan & Associates. “Last year was unlike any other, and our team showed great resilience and continued to go above and beyond to achieve the M&A goals for our nationwide clients. I am humbled and thankful for the collaboration of our team in earning this ranking. We look forward to what the future holds for our firm and clients.”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
“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.”
