We are thrilled to announce that we were listed at No. 4507 on Inc. Magazine’s 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, making this our second consecutive year!
Jeff Tapolci, Chief Executive Officer, states, “We align our core competencies with the demands inside the markets in which we compete. In doing this, we’re able to have quite the scalable growth pace. We’re also a huge proponent of Verne Harnish, the CEO of The Gazelles International Leadership and Growth Summits and author of Mastering the Rockefeller Habits and Scaling Up. We have built our entire organization around his principles, the One-page-plan and the Rockefeller Habits Checklist.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available at newsstands August 23), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.
“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.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2012 to 2015. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2012. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2015.
In 2016, ABG Capital also ranked on Inc. 5000’s 50 Best Places to Work, Penn Central Business Journal’s Best Places to Work in PA, Best Places to Work in Western PA, and the Pittsburgh Business Times’ Fastest Growing Companies.
