SAN FRANCISCO and NEW YORK, Aug. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine recently ranked EPIC Insurance Brokers & Consultants, a retail property, casualty insurance brokerage and employee benefits consultant, NO. 2288 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. To earn this recognition, EPIC posted a solid 158% increase in annual revenue between 2012 and 2015.
Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino's Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known brands gained their first national exposure as honorees among the Inc. 5000.
"We are honored to be included in the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies in America for a third year," said John Hahn, CEO of EPIC. "This recognition from a highly respected and prestigious organization validates that EPIC's strategic plan is successfully driving steady, sustained expansion into new markets. At the same time, we have maintained and strengthened our people-first, client-focused culture that attracts and retains top talent and sustains a very high level of customer service excellence."
The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. is the most competitive crop in the list's history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.
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 http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
"The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That's one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails."
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, Texas.
