Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
Inc. magazine today revealed that Pickler Wealth Advisors has been named on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most 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.
Pickler Wealth Advisors, founded by David Pickler in 2005, is an award-winning independent firm dedicated to empowering clients’ dreams. Bringing the resources of Wall Street to Main Street, the firm partners with clients to help them navigate through life’s challenges and obstacles, preparing them for the future.
Apart from being named to the list of the 5,000 fastest growing companies in the country, Pickler Wealth Advisors was noted with an impressive growth of 40.5% and ranked in the following subcategories: #11 in Metro, #119 in the state of Tennessee, and #294 in the industry.
“Being named to the highly respected Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies in America is a dream come true,” said Pickler. “Our firm embodies America’s entrepreneurial spirit, small town values, and the power of perseverance – especially over the past year-and-a-half. To have reached the uppermost echelon of elite companies and trailblazing titans like Microsoft and Pandora is not only a lifelong bucket list item for me, but it is an honor my entire team can be proud of. The fact that we have been in business for as long as we have and are listed as one of the fastest growing companies in the country is an enormous honor and accomplishment that I don’t take lightly. Thank you to our amazing clients who have confided in our team and trusted us through the years. We wouldn’t be here without you.”
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.
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 www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20th.
“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.”
