Leesburg, VA – March 19th, 2021 – Inc. Magazine announced its second annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: D.C. Metro list which ranked The Building People No. 8 overall and No. 1 among the Real Estate Industry across the Metro area which includes Washington D.C., Richmond, and Virginia Beach. This recognition was born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise and is the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing Washington, D.C. area-based private companies. The Inc. 5000 Regionals: D.C. Metro list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the D.C. area economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.

Lawrence Melton, CEO & President of The Building People said: “This industry recognition is really special to our team as it clearly represents the hard work, credibility, and continued reputation that our customers and partners rely on. This list is made up of an incredibly successful group of firms, and being among these is a tremendous honor.”

The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in the Washington, D.C., region. Between 2017 and 2019, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 211 percent, and, in 2019 alone, they employed more than 120,000 people and added nearly $15 billion to the D.C. area economy. Companies based in major metro areas—Baltimore, Maryland, the Washington, D.C. area, and Richmond, Virginia—brought in the highest revenue overall.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000 Regionals: D.C. Metro, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, metro area, and other criteria, can be found at starting March 16, 2021.

Scott Omelianuk, Editor in Chief at Inc. said: “This list proves the power of companies in the Washington, D.C. area no matter the industry. The impressive revenues and growth rates prove the insight and diligence of CEOs and that these businesses are here to stay.”

The 2021 Inc. 5000 Regionals are ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2017 and 2019. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2017. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2019. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2017 is $100,000; the minimum for 2019 is $1 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons.
