STAMFORD, Conn., Aug. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lockwood Group (Lockwood), a medical communications agency, has been recognized by Inc. magazine in their 2019 Inc. 5000 annual ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This prestigious list of the nation's most successful private companies has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success and the place where future household names first make their mark. For the third year in a row, Lockwood has been a member of this elite group of companies.
The agency, led by President and Chief Executive Officer, Matthew Schecter, is extremely proud of this distinction, which measures the company's growth over the past 3 years specifically. "Our industry is notoriously disruptive, and I am proud to see Lockwood maintain our positive momentum and growth not only over the past 3 years, but consistently since 2007; we are now one of the largest privately held medical communications companies. This is a testament to the remarkable medical communications professionals who go above and beyond for our clients and make this such an incredible place to work every day," said Schecter.
The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
