Posted on August 15, 2018

Omaha, NE – August 15, 2018 Carson Group, a family of companies committed to being the most trusted for financial advice and guidance via service to both advisors and investors, today announced its inclusion in Inc.Magazine’s 37th annual list of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies – the Inc. 5000. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.

This is Carson Group’s second consecutive inclusion, an extraordinary feat considering a mere one in three ever make the list twice. Companies making the list this year have, on average, grown sixfold since 2014. Not only have the firms been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.

“Microsoft, Dell, Pandora, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000,” said Ron Carson, CEO and founder of Carson Group. “With tens of thousands of private companies applying to make the list every year, it’s an incredible honor to be among the select group of trailblazers that are revolutionizing the modern marketplace and redefining consumer behavior.”

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
