Over 150 Vistage Member Companies Recognized as part of Inc. 5000’s Fastest Growing Private Companies in America

SAN DIEGO, California (August 31, 2015) – Over 150 Vistage member companies were named on the 2015 Inc. 5000, an annual list of the 5000 fastest-growing private companies in the United States. This prestigious list of the nation’s most successful private companies has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success and the place where future household names first make their mark.

The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and featured in the September issue of Inc. showed the most competitive increase in the list’s history. The average company on the list generated a three-year growth rate of 490 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $205 billion, generating 647,000 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 Inc.com.

“Members of the Inc. 500 distinguish themselves by growing their companies quickly. But there’s a difference that marks their success: They’ve discovered what they need to know faster than other founders. If entrepreneurship is an education, meet the best learner in class,” stated Leigh Buchanan, Inc. editor-at-large.
