Sep. 05, 2018
PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 5, 2018--Tek Leaders, a fast-growing, global information technology consulting services organization, announced today it ranked No. 554 on Inc. Magazine’s 37th 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. 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.
The 2018 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2014 and 2017. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2014. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2017. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2014 is $100,000; the minimum for 2017 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc. ’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
“Tek Leaders is extremely honored to rank on the prestigious Inc. 5000 listing for 2018. Our dynamic Company has rapidly grown in an industry that is extremely competitive. We’ve built our enterprise by ensuring we have the most talented IT professionals who provide top-notch tech support services. We have created recruitment incentives that allow us to attract some of the industry’s most seasoned professionals. This talent has spurred Tek Leaders’ swift growth, which has facilitated our Company’s inclusion on the prominent Inc. 5000 list. Our entire team is very deserving of this honor,” explained Tek Leaders Chief Executive Officer Devender Reddy Aerrabolu.
Not only have the companies on the 2018 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 15) 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.
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.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” said 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.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 17-19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort, in San Antonio, Texas. Speakers include some of today’s greatest innovators and business leaders.
