LOS ANGELES, Aug. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Inc. magazine today ranked Greenspire No. 9 on its 36th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. Inc. magazine also ranked Greenspire No. 2 in Energy companies, No. 3 in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, and No. 6 in California on the list. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino's Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
"We are truly honored to be part of Inc.'s 500 Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the second year in a row. Our amazing culture and phenomenal personnel are directly responsible for the execution," said Greenspire Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer David Murray. "We are receiving national recognition for our valuable efforts in helping our customer lower the cost of living in a sustainable way. I am very proud of all of our team-member's accomplishments these past few years helping us receive this exclusive award. I look forward to our future success together."
"Our team at Greenspire is ultra driven to do whatever it takes to improve the standard of living with a focus on the future as it relates to tangible "green" options, " said Co-Founder Andrew Baker. "Although we represent an infinitesimal part of the solution it means very much to us. To be selected by Inc. magazine is a wonderful surprise and truly bolsters our confidence in making extra ordinary solutions available to all of us."
The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. is the most competitive crop in the list's history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. 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 www.inc.com/inc5000.
"The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That's one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails."
