COVINGTON, KY., March 8, 2023 –Inc. magazine today revealed that STEP CG is No. 194 on its third annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: Southeast list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing Southeast private companies, based in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Southeast economy's most dynamic segment–its independent small businesses.
"While my favorite way of measuring STEP CG’s success is by hearing how much clients love our solutions and how we’ve helped them achieve their goals, being acknowledged by Inc. is a close second," said STEP CG CEO Ed Walton. "It's truly rewarding to know our team's hard work is translating into growth and recognition, and we’re proud that we have achieved a two-year growth of 64%.”
The companies on this list show a remarkable rate of growth across all industries in the Southeast region. Between 2019 and 2021, these 200 private companies had an average growth rate of 673 percent and, in 2021 alone, they added 25,844 jobs and nearly $7 billion to the Southeast region's economy.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000 Regionals: Southeast, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, metro area, and other criteria, can be found at inc.com/southeast starting February 28, 2023.
“This year’s Inc. 5000 Regional winners represent one of the most exceptional and exciting lists of America’s off-the-charts growth companies. They’re disrupters and job creators, and all delivered an outsize impact on the economy. Remember their names and follow their lead. These are the companies you’ll be hearing about for years to come,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. magazine.
