NEW YORK, Aug. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. Magazine ranked Lexicon Health, a leading digital publisher for the Health and Wellness industry, as NO. 129 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the American economy's most dynamic segment – its fastest-growing private companies. Most notable, Lexicon Health placed third in the Top Media Companies category, boasting a staggering three-year growth of 2,676%.
The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and featuring the top 500 companies in the September issue of Inc., is the most competitive collection to date. The combined list collectively generated $200 billion in revenue and 640,000 jobs over the past three years. Past years' Inc. 5000 alumni include hallmark companies such as Dell, Microsoft, Zillow, LinkedIn and many others.
"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."
Co-founders of Lexicon Health, Chris Clark and Scott Rewick know all too well the challenges of building a successful business from the ground up. Rewick and Clark, are both 15-year veteran digital marketers with successful track records of building several multi-million dollar businesses.
Lexicon Health, founded in 2012, started by producing digital content for the Paleo Secret and Sitting Solution blogs written by holistic health experts and physical therapists, Chad and Brenda Walding, DPT's. This evolved into creating dietary and exercise programs for their audience, many of whom suffer from autoimmune diseases, food sensitivities, diabetes, and obesity.
"We know that much of our success is owed to a proprietary and scalable digital lead generation strategy that we have developed, but it is also equally important to build a company with integrity, value, and a great team as a foundation. Were in the business of inspiring people to naturally achieve better health. At the end of the day, that is what is rewarding – to build something you believe in," stated Rewick.
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, TX.
