Inc. Magazine Unveils Its 37th Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000

ECS Global Solutions Ranks No. 2,658 on the 2018 Inc. 5000 With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 158 Percent

NEW YORK, Aug. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inc. magazine today revealed that ECS Global Solutions is No. 2,658 on its 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 businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Luther Garcia, Chief Executive Officer of ECS Global Solutions, had this to say, “It is very rewarding to be recognized for all of the hard work and dedication all of our employees have displayed and given to the business these past few years. As owners of the business, we look after each and every one of them and incent them to go above and beyond in their jobs by creating a merit-based culture where excellence is both recognized and rewarded. This is also validation that our customer acquisition strategy is sound and is scaling, and that the Building Automation and Internet of Things (IoT) markets are heating up. We feel we are well positioned to capitalize on expanding demand in these sectors, and will continue growing sales at an even greater pace than we have displayed thus far. I look forward to see what our ranking will be next year,” said Garcia.

Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 15) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 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’s 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.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 17 to 19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort, in San Antonio, Texas. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
