Inc. Magazine Names American Specialty Health Among America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the Tenth Time in the Last Eleven Years

Inc. magazine has ranked American Specialty Health Incorporated (ASH) as No. 4958 on its 38th annual list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's most successful and fastest-growing private companies. This marks the tenth time in the last eleven years that ASH has been included in the exclusive Inc. 5000 ranking. This year’s ranking reflects ASH’s 53% percent overall revenue growth from 2015 ($332.64 million) through 2018 ($509.89 million).

“I would like to both congratulate and thank our leadership and management team on the outstanding job they have done over the years growing and developing ASH,” said George DeVries, ASH’s co-founder, chairman and CEO. “ASH has maintained an innovative and entrepreneurial culture since our founding. We have been fortunate to build a series of programs and services that continue to grow and develop.“

James Ledbetter, Inc. Media’s editor in chief, wrote in a letter to ASH’s CEO: “This is your 10th time on the Inc 5000, which is an extraordinary accomplishment. Needless to say, making the list gets harder every year as your starting base grows. Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction have made the list more than once. A mere third of a percent have made the list 10 times.”

According to Inc., the Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful U.S. companies in the economy’s most dynamic segment — its small and medium independent businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Timberland, Vizio, Intuit, Chobani, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
