Inc. Magazine Unveils Florida’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies on the Inaugural 2020 Inc. 5000 Series: Florida
Inc. magazine revealed that Hernandez Construction ranks No. 230 on its inaugural Inc. 5000 Series: Florida list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing Florida-based private companies. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Florida economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
“While life as we know it has changed, the core character of our business has not,” said Alex Hernandez, President of Hernandez Construction. “As an essential business continuing to provide construction and development management services throughout the current pandemic, we are grateful to pause and acknowledge this meaningful recognition that resulted from years of our employees’ hard work. The flexibility and ingenuity that our entire company has shown to quickly adapt to this new environment while continuing to deliver on our promise of providing our clients with the highest level of service and support has been uplifting to see.”
The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in Florida. Between 2016 and 2018, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 302 percent and, in 2018 alone, they employed more than 56,000 people and added $12.6 billion to the Florida economy. Companies based in the Tampa, Miami, and Naples metro areas brought in the highest revenue overall.
The 250 most successful companies are listed on the Inc. 5000 Series: Florida website, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, metro area, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000-series-florida-2020.html
“The companies on this list demonstrate just how much the small-business sector impacts Florida’s economy,” says Inc. editor in chief Scott Omelianuk. “Across every single industry, these businesses have posted revenue and growth rates that are beyond impressive, further proving the tenacity of their founders and CEOs.”
