CivicPlus Earns Position Among Inc. 5000 for Eight Years in a Row [Updated]

Written by Mark Friesen

[Updated] Inc. magazine has included CivicPlus® in the 37th annual 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 and midsized businesses.

Brian Rempe, CivicPlus CEO, says earning such a prestigious honor for eight consecutive years is the result of the dedication of the company's over 300 employees, and its commitment to serving as the integrated technology platform for local government.

"At CivicPlus, we never want to stop innovating," said Rempe. "We are continually monitoring the evolving relationship of local governments and their citizens to develop and integrate solutions that allow governments to work more efficiently and keep up with the demands of tech-savvy citizens. Earning a position, again, among the Inc. 5000's elite reinforces for us that we are meeting our innovation goals."

CivicPlus Ranks Among Inc. 5000 in 2017

Inc. magazine has included CivicPlus® in the 36th annual Inc. 5000. 

“We are pleased to be recognized for the seventh consecutive year among the Inc. 5000,” said CivicPlus President Brian Rempe. “As an employer, and as an organization committed to offering its clients the integrated technology platform for local government, this recognition reaffirms to us that we are meeting our goal of continually growing and evolving to offer competitive solutions and career opportunities.”

The 2017 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. 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. In 2017, CivicPlus reported 61% three-year growth, earning it a position among the fastest-growing, privately owned providers of government services.

According to Rempe, CivicPlus only intends to continue growing, evolving, and pushing the creative limits of its software and solutions to ensure it remains competitive in the government software space.

“While we appreciate the recognition by Inc. magazine, we do not intend to remain complacent with our current level of success,” said Rempe. “Our entire company is hard at work conceptualizing and building even greater solutions to ensure we continue to grow so that we continue to meet the evolving needs of local government.”
