CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Crescent Communities has been named to the 2015 Inc. Magazine list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, joining an elite group of innovative firms whose previous ranks have included household names like Microsoft, Oracle, Timberland and Chobani.

"We are pleased to be recognized as a growth leader by the premier publication dedicated to helping companies grow," said Todd Mansfield, President and CEO of Crescent Communities. "We remain committed to continuing our strong growth trajectory and developing financially and environmentally sustainable communities in the markets we serve, which will represent more than 50% of the U.S. population expansion over the next decade."

Crescent Communities ranked in the top quartile on the annual list and earned the second largest revenue for real estate companies on the Inc. 5000. The high ranking is correlated to a company growth of 343% over the previous three years; ranking Crescent Communities as the second fastest growing real estate company on the list with a minimum of $250 million in revenue.

"Our growth is validation to the investments we have made into our real estate platform and team members," added Mansfield. "We were able to achieve these impressive statistics with a relatively modest increase from a headcount perspective; a testament to the value of our intangible assets such as proprietary consumer research on housing preferences and our company culture."

The 2015 Inc. 5000 ranks companies according to percentage revenue growth over the most recent three-year period. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2011. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent--not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies--as of December 31, 2014. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.)
