iMethods Ranked on Inc. Magazine’s Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies
Inc. magazine today revealed that iMethods is number 4240 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, a highly 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.
Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
According to iMethods CEO Clint Drawdy, “We are thrilled to be recognized on the Inc. 5000 list! We have a truly amazing team that is committed to serving each other, our clients, our consultants and communities. This commitment leads to meaningful work and steady growth, both of which are especially appreciated in light of the challenges small businesses faced this last year.”
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 the difficulties presented by 2020. 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.”
