Not only are we proud to be included on the Inc. 5000 for the 7th time, but it’s great to see us climbing the rankings for a third year in a row.
Hunt Valley, MD (PRWEB) August 22, 2017
CARCHEX, the industry-leading provider of direct to consumer automotive products and services, jumped 262 places to 1,161 in Inc. Magazine’s 36th annual Inc. 5000. Over the last 3 years, CARCHEX has grown an astonishing 358%.
This is also the seventh time the company has made the Inc. 5000 a feat that only two percent of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 have achieved.
This prestigious list highlights the fastest-growing private companies in America. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, Yelp and Zillow all gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
“Not only are we proud to be included on the Inc. 5000 for the 7th time, but it’s great to see us climbing the rankings for a third year in a row,” said Jason Goldsmith, CEO at CARCHEX. “We’ve invested heavily in our culture, marketing, technology, employee benefits and training to make CARCHEX a place where people love to work. Our investments are paying off in the form of rapid growth and an unmatched experience for our customers as we continue to disrupt the Vehicle Protection Industry.”
The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years.
