Inc. Magazine Recognizes Veteran Corps Of America As One Of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies For The Fourth Year In A Row





O'FALLON, Ill, Sept. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Veteran Corps of America ( www.veterancorps.com) is proud to announce that it has been recognized as one of Inc. Magazine's top 500 fastest growing privately held companies in the United States for the fourth year in a row—a distinguished honor that only a handful of companies have earned.  The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America's independent entrepreneurs.

"When Veteran Corps debuted at number 30 in 2010, I never expected that we'd just started a four year run on the list—not many companies have achieved that distinction," said Veteran Corps President and CEO Bill Wheeler. "I'm optimistic by nature," Mr. Wheeler added, "but no one could predict four years of close to 1,000% growth…particularly in the current economic and political environment."

Historically, it is successively more difficult to remain on the list with each passing year. According to Mr. Wheeler, "For a relatively well-established company like ours in a crowded and mature market space, it's that much harder still to be awarded this honor. The list of alumni companies that have achieved this distinction in the history of the Inc. 500 List is very short indeed."

The 2013 Inc. 500, unveiled in the magazine's September issue (available on newsstands August 20 to November 20 and on www.inc.com), is the most competitive crop in the list's history. To make the cut, companies had to achieve a staggering minimum of 918.59% in sales growth. The Inc. 500's aggregate revenue is $14.1 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1,739 percent. The companies on this year's Inc. 500 employ more than 52,100 people and generated over 44,912 jobs in the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 500 | 5000 include company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria.

"Not all the companies in the Inc. 500 | 5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy," says Inc. magazine Editor Eric Schurenberg.

Ranking Methodology. The 2013 Inc. 500 | 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2009 to 2012. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2009. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2012. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2009 is $100,000; the minimum for 2012 is $2 million.
