Reston, VA. August 18, 2016 – Blue Bridge Financial announced today that it has earned recognition as one of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, ranked number 1259 by Inc. Magazine on the prestigious 2016 Inc. 5000 list. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment – independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000. Blue Bridge CEO Mark DeBacker described the Inc. 5000 list as “a testament to the American success story.”
“Inclusion on this list is not only a significant milestone for our company, but also an affirmation of the need for fast, personalized alternative lending solutions that enable American small businesses to flourish,” DeBacker said. “We are honored to have earned the trust of the business owners we serve, and to be recognized by Inc. for our success.”
“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.”
