Elite Pacific Properties, Hawaii’s largest luxury brokerage firm with offices on Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island, has been awarded two of the most highly recognized awards for business growth.
Inc. Magazine named Elite in its 35th annual Inc. 5000, which 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 small 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 honorees of the Inc. 5000. The current Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.
This is the 4th year in a row that Elite has been named as an Inc. 5000 winner and this year Elite came in at #635, the company’s highest ranking yet.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
Elite was also named in Pacific Business News’ “Fastest 50” for the 3rd year in a row. The Pacific Business News, which is recognized as the leading newspaper in the state of Hawaii for carrying daily business news, annually announces the 50 fastest growing themes in Hawaii. Businesses are ranked based on their two-year percentage revenue growth from 2013 to 2015. This year Elite came in at #18.
“Very few companies are able to sustain rapid grown year after year,” says Paul Mayer, Managing Partner of Elite Pacific Properties. “We feel honored to receive this kind of recognition and feel Elite’s achievement is only possible because of our over 180 dedicated real estate agents and solid support team.”
Both the Inc. 5000 and Fastest 50 recognition awards are based on revenue growth and, in either case, must be a privately held company that is not a division or subsidiary of another company.
