Inc. magazine announced this week that SquadBuilders is an honoree of the 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Our company is proud of our 3-year sales growth of 169%! (Read Part 1 of this announcement for additional background.)
As you can see, SquadBuilders finds itself in good company, not only in Kansas, but across the country!
The Inc. 500 is an annual list of the 500 fastest-growing private companies in the United States, introduced in 1982. The Inc. 5000 is an expansion of the Inc. 500, which ranks the country's top 5000 fastest-growing private companies and also features a special ranking of the top 10% of the list as the Inc. 500.
SquadBuilders General Manager Ryan Vaughan shared a little company history for perspective on the terrific growth that has been experienced.
"We entered the Kansas City healthcare market back in 1989. At the time we sold only per-diem staffing services and saw some early success. As a family, we have always embraced reinvestment back into the company. So, a few short years later we opened our Home Health division. Although this division was short lived, what we learned was invaluable to the growth and direction of our business."
He continued, "In the early 2000's we opened a office in Sacramento, CA. Like many others, we did not escape the heartache of the sluggish economy in the late 2000's. This time prompted us to close our physical office and operate from a central office back in Kansas City. We didn't know it then, but this was God's way of preparing and teaching us for the what the future held. So, in 2013 we opened the Travel Nurse Division. I don't think anyone could have envisioned what we have become today. Our motto is to learn from the past and look to the future. We plan to continue doing just that."
The company's growth and expansion recently culminated in a move to new offices in Overland Park, Kansas. "I think we have found our home. We love being in Overland Park. It is a great city with quick access to downtown and many other attractions. We share a home with some of the largest companies in the world; Cerner and Sprint to name a few. Several of our team members moved from neighboring states to work with us. We are excited for the future of this town," said Vaughan.
Congratulations to all SquadBuilders customers, clients, employees and family members on this terrific honor! #JoinTheSquad
