CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — August 19, 2021 — Involta, an industry-leading hybrid IT, cloud computing, and data center services company, is proud to announce it has been named one of the fastest-growing private companies in America by Inc. 5000. This designation marks the ninth time the company has been included on this list, ranking 4,598 on Inc.’s 41st annual edition of fastest-growing companies.
The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment — its independent small businesses. Involta joins Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names that first gained national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Involta was first inducted into the list in 2010, ranking 43, and has demonstrated consistent revenue growth ever since. As a nine-time member of the Inc. 5000, Involta increased its revenue by 56% from 2017 to 2020. The company also had an 18% increase in employees during that period and rose more than 300 positions in rank from 2020 to 2021.
“We are very pleased with the growth we were able to achieve during a year that was so uncertain for many businesses,” comments Bruce Lehrman, Co-Founder and CEO at Involta. “The unusual business climate makes being included in the Inc. 5000 list an even greater accomplishment. Our goal remains focused on empowering our clients by providing the people, processes and technology to transform their organizations, allowing them to focus on their core business.”
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%, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
“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.”
The recognition is the pinnacle in a growing number of awards, designations and recognitions Involta has earned in the last year. In June, the company announced it has been KLAS Rated and Reviewed for Partial IT Outsourcing. This esteemed recognition marks the first KLAS designation for Involta, further advancing the company’s mission to enable healthcare organizations to transform digitally. The company has appeared multiple times on CRN’s top lists, including the 2021 Fast Growth 150, 2021 Solution Provider 500 and Tech Elite 250.
Recently, the company also acquired assets of SecureData 365 in Canton, Ohio. In the last 12 months, Involta joined forces with Radware and VMware, earning the company VMware Cloud Verified status.
