Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 21, 2014
Inc. magazine ranked Centurion Service Group No. 3745 on its 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economyAmericas independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Dominos Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
Centurion is proud to have been named to the Inc. 5000 list. We have worked hard to become a leader in medical equipment sales and through our methodology we have continued sustained growth. We anticipate the same kind of growth in the coming years, due to pressure on the Healthcare supply chain to save money and the need for second hand equipment worldwide, said Erik Tivin, CEO, Centurion Service Group, LLC.
The 2014 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 20 to November 30), is the most competitive crop in the lists history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 516%. The Inc. 5000s aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years. 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 http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
"What surprises me, even though I know its coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved, says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesnt change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 15 through 17, 2014 in Phoenix. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Michael Dell, Martha Stewart, host of the CNBC show The Profit Marcus Lemonis, Container Store Founder and CEO Kip Tindell, and Chobani Founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya.
