Hanapin Marketing Recognized by Inc. Magazine as One of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the 5th Time in a Row
Bloomington, Indiana Aug. 15, 2018 — Hanapin Marketing is thrilled to be recognized as one of the fastest growing private companies for the fifth year in row by Inc. magazine, ranking in at 4,053.
“Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction have made the list more than once. A mere one in ten have made the list 5 times,” stated James Ledbetter, Editor in Chief for Inc Media.
The 37th annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
“I’m incredibly proud of our team and grateful for our clients, who trust us to be growth levers for their businesses. When we think about revenue growth we think of it as a reflection of how well we do two things; engage our employees and thrill our customers. Being included on this list for 5 consecutive years is great but I take even more pride in our 95% employee retention and 71 net promoter score (the highest in our industry),” says Hanapin President, Jeff Allen.
Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
