Chasen Tops Inc. Magazine’s List of
D.C. Metro’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—
The Inc. 5000 Series: D.C. Metro
Chasen ranks No. 1 on the inaugural list with two-year revenue growth of 3,671 percent
BALTIMORE, February 26, 2020 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Chasen Companies, formerly Chasen Construction and Development, is No. 1 on its inaugural Inc. 5000 Series: D.C. Metro list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the D.C. Metro economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
“We are so proud to be named the fastest-growing private company in the D.C. Metro region,” shared Brandon Chasen, Sr, founder and CEO of Chasen Companies. “This recognition is a direct result of the massive effort each of our team members puts in day in and day out—their passion, loyalty and drive are the leading factors behind our growth, and we are just getting started. We are committed to continuing to create vibrant, beautiful and usable spaces for people to live, work and play for years to come.”
The companies on the inaugural list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in the D.C. metropolitan region. Between 2016 and 2018, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 196 percent and, in 2018 alone, they employed over 88,000 people and added $6.5 billion in revenue to the greater D.C. area’s economy. Companies based in the Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Richmond, Virginia, Metro areas brought in the highest revenue overall.
“The companies on this list demonstrate just how much the small-business sector impacts the economies of D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware” says Inc. editor in chief Scott Omelianuk. “Across every single industry, these businesses have posted revenue and growth rates that are beyond impressive, further proving the tenacity of their founders and CEOs.”
The Inc. 5000 Series: D.C. Metro Summit & Awards event to honor the companies on the list will take place on Wednesday, June 3, 2020, at Hook Hall (3400 Georgia Ave. NW, Washington, D.C. 20010). Complete results of the Inc. 5000 Series: D.C. Metro, including an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, metro area, and other criteria, can be found at inc.com/inc5000-series-dc-2020.
