Inc. magazine announced that ProLink Staffing LLC has ranked No. 3548 on the Inc. 5000 list, a 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. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Tony Munafo, ProLink founding partner and CEO, commented, “We are thrilled to make the Inc. 5000 list for the third consecutive year. Our vision is to be a vehicle of personal, professional and financial growth and empowerment for all the people we serve—our clients, talent and team—the ProLink family. This year, the meaning of that service changed dramatically. We are proud that we were able to adapt and continue to move along the path to world-class staffing organization. We look forward to yet another year of serving and growing with the ProLink family.”
Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list shows impressive growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over1 million jobs over the past three years.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually from October 23 to 27, 2020. As always, speakers will include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
