Share Article

The specialized firm ranks #7 in the revenue category for job creation over the past three years.

We believe that the only way back to American prosperity is through small businesses. - David Nilssen, CEO

Guidant Financial was featured in the inaugural ranking of Inc.’s Hire Power Awards, recognizing the private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past three years.

Guidant Financial grew its employee base by 100% from 2008 to 2011, placing it among the top private business job creators in their revenue category.

“Guidant has experienced phenomenal growth over the past four years and it has allowed us to add amazing talent to our team,” remarked Guidant CEO & Co-founder David Nilssen. “We are also proud of the fact that the small business owners and franchisees we have helped fund are currently employing over 50,000 American workers.”

Inc. is the only major business media brand aimed solely at CEOs of fast-growing private companies. The Hire Power Awards will appear in Inc.’s December/January issue, as well as the brand’s web site,

“The top 100 companies on the list have created 73,032 American jobs in the three-year period from 2008 to 2011 – an amazing feat, given that much of that job growth came during the heart of the recession,” explains Inc. editor-in-chief Eric Schurenberg. “And it isn’t just the big guys that are adding jobs. Companies with less than $50 million in annual revenue make up nearly one-third of the Hire Power list.”

Inc.’s Hire Power Awards celebrates private companies on the forefront of American job creation, giving these businesses the recognition they deserve.

“We believe that the only way back to American prosperity is through small businesses,” continued Nilssen. “Guidant applauds INC for recognizing the role small business plays in our economy.”
