Inc. magazine today revealed that The DVI Group is No. 1677 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’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Thanks to a three-year revenue growth of 244% percent, The DVI Group joins Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names that gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We’re excited about how The DVI Group is performing as we enter into our 20th year,” says DVI CEO Matthew Lopes. “Our clients have entrusted us with providing innovative video content and integrated marketing services for their world-renowned brands, and the success of our creative partnerships is evident in the recognition and awards that have happened as a result. From being short-listed at Cannes, to being ranked in the Inc. 5000. I’m extremely proud of our client relationships and the hard work and dedication of everyone at DVI who have made achieving this honor possible.”
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.”
CEO Matthew Lopes and key members of the DVI Group team will toast to DVI’s impressive first-time appearance on the Inc. 5000 list by joining innovators and business leaders at the annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list, which will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona.
