Blake Willson Group, LLC Ranks No. 793 on the 2019 Inc. Magazine Top 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies

WASHINGTON (PRWEB) August 19, 2019

Inc. Magazine revealed on August 14th, 2019 Blake Willson Group, LLC ranked No. 793 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies based on percentage revenue growth when comparing 2015 and 2018. To qualify, amongst other requirements, companies must have been founded and generating at least $100,000 revenue in 2015 and at least $2,000,000 revenue in 2018.

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.

“Blake Willson Group is honored to be named to the prestigious Inc. 5000 list. Being ranked on the same list as some of the country’s most successful and innovative companies, is a testament to how great of a team we have at Blake Willson Group. We share this achievement with all those who have helped us reach this important milestone,” said RJ Blake, the founder and President & CEO.

Drew Griffin, Sr. Vice President added, “despite inherent challenges faced by all start-up small businesses, we are proud to see substantial revenue growth year over year since 2014. We believe this is attributed to our steadfast commitment to the firm’s core values and only hiring individuals that share in those values, most importantly servant leadership. “

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 here.

“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 10th to 12th, 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.
