"The story of this year's Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top," says Inc.

Business owners don't achieve that kind of success by accident."
BHG has continued its record-breaking growth in 2015, with the successful launch of a variety of new solutions, including personal financing, the BHG Power MasterCard® as well as business and personal insurance solutions through its sister company, BHG Insurance Services.
To accommodate the growth, BHG recently moved its corporate headquarters to a renovated 26,000 square-foot complex in Davie, Fla. The progressive workspace has already gained recognition from the media and the American Heart Association for its onsite gym facility and fitness programs.
