BIZZELL RANKS NO. 128 ON THE 2020 INC. 500 SERIES: D.C. METRO
February 27, 2020 (Lanham, MD)—Inc. magazine announced that The Bizzell Group (Bizzell) is No. 128 on its inaugural Inc. 5000 Series: D.C. Metro list for achieving a 95% increase in revenue growth in 2018. The list is the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the D.C. Metro economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
“As always, I’m captivated by the zeal and fortitude of my team. This recognition by the Inc. 5000 committee would not be feasible without them. I express the utmost gratitude for this distinguished ranking,” said Dr. Anton C. Bizzell, President & CEO.
The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in the D.C. metropolitan area. Between 2016 and 2018, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 196 percent and, in 2018 alone, they employed over 88,000 people and added $6.5 billion in revenue to the greater D.C. area’s economy. Companies based in the Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Richmond, Virginia, metro areas brought in the highest revenue overall.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000 Series: D.C. Metro, including an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, metro area, and other criteria, can be found at inc.com/inc5000-series-dc-2020.
“The companies on this list demonstrate just how much the small-business sector impacts the economies of D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware” says Inc. editor in chief Scott Omelianuk. “Across every single industry, these businesses have posted revenue and growth rates that are beyond impressive, further proving the tenacity of their founders and CEOs.”
The Inc. 5000 Series: D.C. Metro Summit & Awards event to honor the companies on the list will take place on Wednesday, June 3, 2020, at Hook Hall (3400 Georgia Ave. NW, Washington, D.C. 20010).
