Inc. magazine today revealed that Birmingham-based Oakworth Capital Bank is No. 3921 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, 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.
“We are thrilled to be included on the Inc. 5000 list again this year,” said Scott Reed, president and chief executive officer of Oakworth Capital Bank. “Our continued inclusion on this list is a testament to our associates and the level of service and knowledge they provide our clients. Without this dedication, we would not have experienced the growth necessary to be in such illustrious company.”
Oakworth Capital embodies their philosophy of “timeless values for a modern world” in everything they do. This is reflected in the services they offer wealth, commercial banking and personal banking clients and to the very intentional way that service is delivered. “This is not just a philosophy, but a way of doing business that is rooted deeply in the core of Oakworth,” continued Reed.
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.
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 www.inc.com/inc5000.
“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.”
