Eleven years . . . and counting. That’s how many times AppRiver, a leading cloud cybersecurity and productivity provider has been included on Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies in America. As only the second Florida business to ever reach this milestone, AppRiver is among a tiny handful of companies nationwide to earn the distinction.
Only a fraction of businesses has made the Inc. 5000 list more than once, and a mere one-tenth, of one percent nationwide have matched AppRiver’s 11 appearances. Industrywide, AppRiver is one of only seven IT companies in America to have been included for this many years. Not only did AppRiver make the list, it actually improved in the rankings moving to 4111 this year from 4204 in 2016.
"This unprecedented streak is a tribute to our excellent team and partners,” said AppRiver president and CEO Michael Murdoch. “We’ve succeeded by making it easier for companies to remain secure and productive, while providing live, US-based customer care all day, every day.”
The Inc. 5000 provides a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—independent small and midsized businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, LinkedIn and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
"The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands Aug. 16) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved an overwhelming three-year average growth of 481 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years.
