Sterling Earns Seventh Inc. 5000 Appearance

Solution Provider Recognized as Hall of Fame Recipient

Dakota Dunes, SD, August 29th, 2018

Inc. magazine recently unveiled its 37th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. With a three-year revenue growth of 71%, Sterling ranked #4,562 on the list.

The Inc. 5000 provides a unique look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment: its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many others first gained national exposure as honorees of the list. Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a handful have been featured more than once. A mere three and a half percent have made the list seven times.

Brad Moore, President and CEO, attributes Sterling’s growth to the execution of a targeted expansion initiative—and to the day-to-day efforts of the staff. “Seven appearances on the Inc. 5000 is a testament to a company-wide commitment to execute, every single day. We’re thrilled by the recognition, but even more rewarding is being able to deliver genuine value to our customers. In our eyes, the two will always go hand-in-hand.”

Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the 2018 recipients achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it is an unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. Editor in Chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”

Along with featuring on the 2018 list, Sterling is now considered among the Inc. 5000 Hall of Fame, an honor that recognizes repeat honorees. Complete results, including company profiles and an interactive database, can be found at
