The Vested Group is delighted to announce that we have earned a spot on the 2017 Inc. 5000 list.  This list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and midsized businesses. The official Inc. 5000 rankings were released last week, placing The Vested Group at position number 1371. For the past 36 years, Inc. has recognized the fastest-growing private companies in America, and this year’s set of winners is impressive to say the least. Companies that made the 2017 list have, on average, grown six-fold in the last four years.

As an Inc. 5000 honoree, The Vested Group now shares a pedigree with Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, GoPro, Timberland, Clif Bar, Patagonia, Oracle, Box Grubhub, and dozens of other alumni that have gone on to become household names.  In addition to The Vested Group, the class of 2017 includes such powerhouses as S’well, Halo Top Creamery, Bitly, and Orangetheory Fitness.  In other words, we are in very good company! The 2017 Inc. 5000 are the superheroes of the U.S. economy - America's fastest-growing private companies wield powers like strategy, service, and innovation.

The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481%.

Joel Patterson, Founder of The Vested Group, cited his team and expanded business offering as the sources of their success. Patterson states, “we’ve had some notable expansion over the last couple of years – becoming SuiteSuccess certified and launching our Reverse Logistics solution, reVESTED, for example – I think this growth, coupled with the solid team we have at The Vested Group has led to our success.”

There’s no doubt this expansion in service offerings has contributed to The Vested Group’s growth.  The Vested Group is one of the first NetSuite Partners to be certified to offer the rapid implementation service, SuiteSuccess.  In addition to this, The Vested Group recently premiered a solution tailored to the ITAD (Information Technology Asset Disposition), End-of-Life, and Reverse Logistics industries, reVESTED.

This steady growth has not only paved the way for The Vested Group landing on lists like the Inc. 5000, but they have also had the honor of being listed on the CRN Fast Growth 150 this month as well.  In May, The Vested Group was named NetSuite’s VAR of the month and just last month Accounting Today placed The Vested Group on their Top 10 VARs to watch list.
