“We are very excited to be recognized this year as one of the fastest growing companies in the country,” says Kent Clothier, Founder and CEO of REI Marketing. “Our team continued to innovate and lead through a challenging period in our industry. 2011-2014 in the real estate industry were historically difficult times for the industry, but our software company continued to provide a great services, great value, and great client support and we’re really proud to be honored for our growth.”
In addition to REI Marketing, the Clothier family had 3 additional companies in this year’s list all ranking in the top 3,000 – Memphis Invest (#2622), Premier Realty Group (#587), and Premier Property Management Group (#2900). “I don’t know if Inc. magazine has ever had a family with four companies on the list at the same time, but needless to say, we’re very proud,” Clothier continued.
The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 18 to September 22) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490%.
