NEW YORK, August 17, 2021 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Wheeler Staffing Partners is No. 4,514 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful, dynamic companies within the U.S. economy that are positioned to make an impact. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Wheeler’s CEO and founder, Tim Wheeler stated: “Despite business uncertainties, we have had the privilege of experiencing continued rapid growth. We are extremely proud that this is being recognized by Inc. 5000. Our team is dedicated to achieving the best results and we are grateful for all of our employees and clients who have sacrificed and achieved so much through these hard times. We are excited for the future of Wheeler Staffing Partners!”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, these companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
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 www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.
