The nation’s fastest-growing veterinary management company, Southern Veterinary Partners (SVP), has ranked on the 2021 Inc. 5000 for the fourth consecutive year, landing at number 862 with a three-year revenue growth of 565 percent.
Inc. Magazine’s annual list of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies, the Inc. 5000, revealed the latest rankings this week, where SVP outranked all other veterinary companies on the list.
“It’s an honor to see the team’s hard work recognized by earning a top spot amongst the nation’s most successful and well-known companies. I’m so proud of the people at SVP and the mission we work towards each day,” said Jay Price, DVM and CEO of SVP. “We are excited for the future and continuing our critical work to make our animal hospitals, as well as our home office in Birmingham, great places to work together, amaze and grow.”
The companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 are very competitive within their markets, and this year’s class 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 www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.
“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.”
