Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) August 23, 2014
Inc. magazine today ranked IN-FLIGHT CREW CONNECTIONS No. 450 on its 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000, 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 Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
In-Flight Crew Connections provides professional Pilot and Flight Attendant solutions for the corporate aviation industry. In-Flight Crew Connections' mission is to develop customized solutions that meet the unique needs of corporate flight departments.
“Being a part of such an impressive group of companies is a true honor,” said Jennifer Guthrie, CEO of In-Flight Crew Connections. “It is a testament, not only to our team and the dedication they bring to work every day, but also a reflection of the success and longevity of our clients.”
In-Flight Crew Connections also ranked No. 6 in Charlotte based companies, No. 9 in Top North Carolina Companies, and No. 5 in Travel Companies.
The 2014 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 20 to November 30), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 516%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, 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/inc5000.
"What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 15 through 17, 2014 in Phoenix. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Michael Dell, Martha Stewart, host of the CNBC show “The Profit” Marcus Lemonis, Container Store Founder and CEO Kip Tindell, and Chobani Founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya.
