Inc. magazine today revealed that ACERTUS is No. 1752 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. ACERTUS, a tech-enabled vehicle lifecycle solutions company, has corporate headquarters in South St. Louis County and was co-founded by St. Louis native William Billiter.
“We are honored to be included on this prestigious list and humbled to stand among the nation’s fastest-growing private companies,” said William Billiter, co-founder and CEO of ACERTUS. “None of this would be possible without our amazing team – it’s a testament to their hard work and dedication to excellence. The same entrepreneurial spirit that gave us our start continues to fuel our relentless drive to deliver innovative products, comprehensive services and exceptional customer service.”
ACERTUS is a leader in the automotive logistics industry and leverages powerful, proprietary technology to deliver complete, end-to-end solutions throughout the lifecycle of a vehicle including vehicle transport, title and registration, storage, care and maintenance, compliance services and more. Its drive to continually elevate the industry standard is exemplified by its three-year revenue growth of 232 percent.
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
