Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) August 21, 2014
Inc. magazine today ranked STONE Resource Group NO. 490 on its 33rd annual Inc. 500, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500.
CEO David Sergile states “Being in the people business can be challenging, but when you hire exceptional people and give them the opportunity to make decisions and perform at a high level, the vast ocean between hard work and success quickly evaporates. We are honored to win such a prestigious award and follow in the footsteps of such amazing companies as Microsoft, Zappos, and many others. Make no mistake, for us this is not a finish line but merely a mile marker within our journey of success. We will continue to work harder than our competition, and serve our employees and our customers."
The 2014 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 20 to November 20 and on Inc.com), is the most competitive crop in the lists’ history. To make the cut, companies had to have achieved a staggering minimum of 918.59% in sales growth. The Inc. 500’s aggregate revenue is $14.1 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1739 percent. The companies on this year's Inc. 500 employ more than 52,100 people and generated over 44,912 jobs in the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 500, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at http://www.inc.com/500.
"Not all the companies in the Inc. 500 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy,” says Inc. magazine Editor Eric Schurenberg.
The 2014 Inc. 500 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2010 to 2013. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2010. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2013. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2010 is $100,000; the minimum for 2013 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue.
