For the 4th time, Verity Ranks on Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies in America List

For the 4th time in 5 years, Verity Commercial appears on the Inc. 5000 with an impressive 3-year revenue growth rate. Inc. 5000 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 businesses. The 2020 Inc. 5000 list achieved an incredible 3-year average growth of over 500%, and a median rate of 165%.


Over the past year, Verity celebrated 10 years in business, increased its team members by 33%, experienced the highest grossing commission average per agent in Verity’s history, expanded their data center market footprint nationally and internationally, and extended operations into Chicago. Additionally, Verity improved internal operations and systems, enhanced employee benefit packages, and launched a new website.


“Our ranking on the Inc. 5000 list, for a 4th time, speaks to Verity’s culture and approach when serving our clients,” said Herman Diebler, Co-Founder of Verity Commercial. “A special thank you to our valued clients, business partners, and peers for their ongoing support, trust, and partnership. Also, I want to recognize the entrepreneurial spirit of our dedicated team members and their steadfast commitment to making our clients successful in their business and investment initiatives and strategies.”


Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past 3 years.


“After 10 years in business, it never ceases to amaze me what Verity’s team of motivated, hard-working individuals can accomplish,” said Verity Co-Founder Ken Traenkle. “Through teamwork, trust, and motivation, they come together to generate exceptional results for clients. I’m extremely proud of our team.”


Verity’s ranking on the Inc. 5000 list follows Northern Virginia Technology Council’s (NVTC) announcement naming Verity as a finalist for the 2020 NVTC Data Center Supplier Champion Award.


Verity is honored to once again be recognized by Inc. for tremendous growth and would like to thank its valued clients, business partnerships, friends, and team who made this recognition possible.
