For the second time in two years, ProEst has been included on the list of Inc Magazine’s fastest-growing companies, jumping an impressive 860 positions in a single year. The prestigious list recognizes noteworthy growth and business accomplishments of privately-owned U.S. businesses across every industry. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and other high-profile organizations first gained national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000 list. To qualify for the 2021 INC 5000 list, companies were required to meet the following criteria:
--U.S.-based, independent, privately-held and for profit
--Generated revenue since March of 2017
--Generated no less than $100,000 in 2017 and no less than $2,000,000 in 2020
“It is a real honor for ProEst to be included on the INC 5000 list two years running,” said Jeff Gerardi, ProEst CEO. “The credit for this achievement belongs to our clients, employees and industry partners for their commitment to the ProEst mission, especially given the challenges we all experienced in 2020.”
ProEst, along with other INC 5000 companies being honored this year, proved to be especially resilient and adaptive among the business restrictions that characterized much of last year, a source of pride for Gerardi and his executive team. “We couldn’t fully anticipate how vastly different the business climate would be for construction in 2020,” he said, “but as a technology company, we are in the business of generating positive change for our clients and the industry as a whole. Innovation is at the core of what we do, which was invaluable to our organization last year.” Gerardi pointed to the company’s pioneering presence on the online cloud platform as a key differentiator and driver of growth, giving both ProEst and their client base a, efficient way to stay connected and productive when work-at-home mandates were in place.
Among the 5000 companies on the 2021 list, the average median three-year growth rate rose to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years. ProEst and other 2021 INC 5000 honorees will receive a permanent and dedicated company profile on Inc.com, as well as editorial coverage in Inc. Magazine.
