Moves Up to No. 717 on Magazine’s List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies
Inc. magazine today revealed that VSA, Inc., with an impressive three-year growth rate of 612 percent, is No. 717 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 companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
A premier telesales and customer service firm that supports companies with outsourced B2B lead generation and inbound customer service programs, VSA ranks number 11 of the top companies in Philadelphia on the Inc. 5000. The company debuted on the Inc. 5000 last year at number 1286 and was ranked 24 of the Inc. 5000 companies in Philadelphia. Only one in four companies have made the Inc. 5000 twice.
“When I started VSA in my family room in 2001, my vision was to create a collaborative environment that would be exceptional for our clients, our prospects, and our personnel,” says Valerie Schlitt, VSA CEO and Founder. “While it certainly has its challenges, I find being an entrepreneur incredibly rewarding both professionally and personally, and I am thrilled that VSA has been named to the Inc. 5000 for the second year in a row.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, the list shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 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 www.inc.com/inc5000, and the top 500 companies will be featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 20.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona.
