“Achieving the Inc. 5000 list for 10 consecutive years is an extraordinary feat that less than 150 of companies can claim. This accomplishment wasn’t easy, it demanded hard work, perseverance, and passion for our mission to improve lives. I am grateful for the pillars of our success – our innovative team whose dedication knows no bounds, our exceptional vendors who stand by our side, our treasured customers who inspire us to excel, and the remarkable diversity and inclusion ecosystem that fuels our progress. Your collective support has been the bedrock upon which we’ve built this legacy. From the bottom of my heart, I extend a heartfelt THANK YOU for your contributions that have transformed a vision into a reality. Here’s to the past ten years of exceptionalism and to the horizons that lie ahead!”

The 2023 Inc. 5000 class stands as a testament to companies that have not only achieved remarkable revenue growth but have also surmounted challenges arising from inflationary pressures, heightened capital costs, and the complexities of talent acquisition. Collectively, these entities have contributed an impressive 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.
