Inc. magazine today revealed that VPLS is No. 239 on its second annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: California list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing California-based private companies. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the California economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
“We’re honored to receive this recognition. Our organization is global, but we have strong roots in California. VPLS is proud of the partnerships and community that we’ve built, and we are dedicated to bringing our best-in-class customer service, robust portfolio of solutions, and extensive bench of technical experts to other businesses nationwide,” commented John Minnix, President and COO of VPLS
The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in California. Between 2017 and 2019, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 535 percent and, in 2019 alone, they employed more than 40,000 people and added nearly $7 billion to the California economy. Companies based in major metro areas—Los Angeles, the Bay Area, and San Diego—brought in the highest revenue overall.
