on the 2021 Inc. 5000
NEW YORK, August 17, 2021 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Summit Medical Staffing of Fremont, Nebraska is No. 3257 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most 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 their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We are honored to be part of the Inc. 5000 this year,” stated Bill Watts, CEO and founder of Summit Medical Staffing. “This is a very proud moment for me, and our entire staff. We are extremely grateful for the talented and dedicated people that have made this possible. Summit is a Healthcare Provider Centric company and I personally feel we have the best culture in the staffing business. Our team strives to preserve this philosophy every day.”
The average median three-year growth rate among the 2021 Inc. 5000 soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Over the past three years, the companies added a combined total of more than 610,000 jobs to the market.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc., said. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.” Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
