Smart Fleet Management Technology Leader Lands Spot on Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies
Seattle WA – Aug 22, 2016 – Zonar, the leader in smart fleet management technology, announced today that it has been named to Inc. Magazine’s 35th annual Inc. 5000 list recognizing the fastest-growing private companies in America. This prestigious list incorporates exclusive rankings of companies nationwide and provides a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy — America’s independent entrepreneurs.
“Zonar’s mission is to transform the transportation industry with smart fleet management technologies that make commercial vehicles safer, more efficient and more compliant,” said Brett Brinton, co-founder, and CEO of Zonar Systems. “We are humbled and honored that the outstanding levels of growth and success Zonar is achieving are recognized on Inc.’s fastest-growing private companies in America list.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on 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. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
Zonar Systems will be recognized among the other Inc. 5000 nominees at the 35th annual Inc. 5000 Conference and Award Ceremony, held from October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, TX.
