CivicPlus Earns Decade-Long Recognition from Inc. Magazine as One of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America

Written by Jessica Marabella

[Updated August 2020]

Inc. magazine has included CivicPlus® in the 2020 Inc. 5000, 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.

Brian Rempe, CivicPlus Chief Executive Officer, says that earning consistent recognition as an Inc. 5000 company for a decade is an honor and an achievement that every employee in the company feels deeply.

“For nearly half of our company’s existence, we’ve been honored as an Inc. 5000 company,” said Rempe. “The communities we serve that continue to improve, evolve, and grow inspire us to do the same. To be recognized for our commitment to progress is a tremendous distinction and one that keeps us highly motivated to keep helping local government work better.”

Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.

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 inc.com/inc5000.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”

According to Rempe, CivicPlus intends to continue growing, evolving and pushing the creative limits of its software and solutions to ensure it is helping solve the newest challenges that local governments are facing in the COVID-19 era.

“While we appreciate the recognition by Inc. Magazine, we do not intend to become complacent with our current level of success,” said Rempe. “We understand that our world today looks different than it did only months ago and that local governments are facing unprecedented challenges. We are working hard to evolve our solutions to help local governments meet the imperative expectations among citizens today to engage with their local government online.”

Methodology

The 2020 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2016 and 2019. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2016. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2019. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2016 is $100,000; the minimum for 2019 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at inc.com/inc5000.
