Omaha, August 14, 2019– Carson Group, a top financial services firm helping advisors and investors, today announced its third consecutive year on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies. The organization came in at No. 3450 on the annual list, which represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“This is such a rare achievement for a firm our size,” said Ron Carson, CEO and founder of Carson Group. “Making the list and maintaining this momentum is virtually unheard of, as only one in eight companies have made the list three times. It’s a true testament to our vision of becoming a 100-year company in financial services.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole 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.

“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.”
