Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of

America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

The Inc. 5000

NEW YORK, August 17, 2021 – Inc. magazine today revealed that GENESIS ADVISERS is No. 4602 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.


Genesis President and CEO Richard Wetzler responded, “We are honored to be included in this prestigious ranking alongside a very impressive list of fast-growing small businesses. The seminal and future-focused work of our co-founder and global management influencer Michael Watkins permeates everything we do and sets the bar for our diverse and talented network of leadership consultants.  The shift to remote and hybrid work in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis has been a watershed moment in the field of executive onboarding, with companies embracing the value of supporting key talent and the teams and organizations they lead now more than ever. Over the years we have built enduring partnerships with leading global organizations because we consistently deliver impact as a service and offer an alternative to the less-nimble global consultancies."


Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 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 The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20th.


“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
