Merchants Fleet made Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
The list represents a look at independent small businesses within the American economy, according to the Fleet Management Company.
“I am extraordinarily proud of our company’s growth and the hard work that has propelled us into the Inc. 5000 for the first time in the company’s history,” said Brendan P. Keegan, CEO of Merchants Fleet. “It’s an honor to be ranked alongside some of the best, most innovative companies in the nation.”
Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
The 2020 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2016 and 2019. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually from Oct. 23 - 27, 2020.
