AltaVista Joins Prestigious Group of Honorees with Fourth Straight INC 5000 Appearance

Inc. magazine revealed that AltaVista Strategic Partners has made its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. “I am incredibly proud of our team at AltaVista,” said Ray McLaughlin, managing partner of AltaVista. “For four consecutive years, we have reached the Inc. 5000 list amongst some of the greatest companies in the US.”

The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“The fact that only 25% of the companies on the list remain on it for four years is a testament to the hard work of our entire team,” McLaughlin stated. “As our firm gets bigger, it is more challenging to keep up the growth rates, so making it this year was a huge thrill for us.”

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 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million 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 The top 500 companies are also being featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 18.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually from October 23 to 27, 2020. As always, speakers will include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
