NEW YORK, August 12, 2020 – Inc. magazine revealed that WIMCO Corp of Washington, NC made its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.

Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“It is with incredible excitement that WIMCO made the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America. The only reason we did this is because we work with clients that care about us and we have incredible group of talented team members I call family.” said WIMCO Corp CEO Kevin Rawls.
Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well.

The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.
