In an effort to grow the economy through pro-business policies, President-elect Donald Trump has promised to pare down big government in favor of fewer regulations. There are many question marks as we roll into 2017, many of which won’t be answered for months to come.
Today, we are honored to announce that we were listed at No. 639 on Inc. Magazine’s 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. This is our second consecutive year ranking on the list.
“At Inspira we have tremendous opportunities before us. We have identified four or five new markets that have opened up in the last year or so, that is the direct result of an aging baby boomer population and a variety of state and federal legislation,” says Chief Executive Officer, Ron Eggert. “We try to have as much exposure as possible to national economic news and trends, as our products are primarily invested in mutual funds and money markets. That said, our industry attempts to encourage saving in both good and not so good economic times.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available at newsstands August 23), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.
We are proud to announce the honor of being named on the 2016 Fastest Growing Companies list by the Pittsburgh Business Times, ranking third overall and placed first in the Finance category.
Ron Eggert, Chief Executive Officer said, “Inspira’s accelerated growth has primarily been the result of an excellent and dedicated team that delivers disruptive and efficient solutions to a mature industry.” Mr. Eggert continued, “At Inspira we adhere to three strategies for growth. These primary strategies center around identifying ways to help our prospective clients, generate revenue, reduce expense or create additional client stickiness. When you deliver these to your clients nothing can stop you.”
Inspira recently joined forces with the Tapolci Foundation to give back to the community. The Tapolci Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building stronger communities by connecting entrepreneurs and businesses with charitable organizations. That’s a win-win for everyone involved!
