LAKE MARY, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–With an impressive three-year growth rate of 791%, global youth enhancement company Jeunesse ranked #481 on Inc. magazine’s 35th annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The company ranked #6 on the subset list of Top Orlando, FL Companies.
This ranking marks Jeunesse as the fastest-growing Inc. 500 company in the $36 billion U.S. direct selling industry, and the only direct seller to rank in the top 500 this year. In addition, Jeunesse is the only direct selling company to have maintained a top tier ranking for three consecutive years.
Jeunesse also has the distinction of being the only company, in any industry, on the Inc. 500 this year to have achieved billion-dollar annual sales, which is noteworthy as it is rare for a billion-dollar company to appear in the top 500. Jeunesse is one of only nine companies to do so in the list’s 35-year history.
The company’s 2016 ranking comes after a year where Jeunesse reached the billion-dollar milestone and garnered a multitude of corporate business awards including Stevie® Awards for Company of the Year and Fastest Growing Company of the Year in both the American Business AwardsSM and International Business AwardsSM.
The Inc. 5000 is the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment — its independent businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as Inc. 5000 honorees.
“The Inc. 500 is a prestigious collection of amazing privately held American companies, and we are honored to be ranked among them. Our success has been rooted in the efforts of the Jeunesse Distributors, executives and employees around the world who have collectively contributed to the company’s accomplishments. We are proud of this achievement and excited for what the future holds for Jeunesse,” commented Jeunesse Chief Visionary Officer, Scott Lewis.
Jeunesse will be featured along with the other top 500 companies in the September issue of Inc. hitting newsstands August 23. This year’s list is the most competitive crop in Inc. 5000 history. For complete results visit inc.com/inc5000/list.
