Equity Loans LLC announced that it has been named to the Inc. 500|5000 list of fastest growing companies in America, achieving a three-year sales growth of 655 percent. The Inc. 500|5000 list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs.
In addition to its overall ranking, Equity Loans was ranked in the top 100 financial services companies, top 100 Georgia companies and one of the top companies in the Atlanta metro area.
"Not all the companies in the Inc. 500|5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields, they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do,” said Eric Schurenberg, editor of Inc. magazine. “They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy.”
“The mortgage industry has been in flux for several years, and Equity Loans’ placement on the Inc. 500|5000 list is a testament to our ability to sustain growth and profitability amidst the challenges in today’s housing market,” said Kunjan “KP” Patel, CEO of Equity Loans. “It is an honor to be recognized among the elite group of the fastest growing private companies in America. The hard work and dedication of our employees have been the driving force behind Equity Loans’ growth, and as the market continues to recover, we expect that growth to continue for years to come.”
This award continues recent momentum for Equity Loans, which was recently ranked as one of the nation’s top mortgage lenders by Scotsman Guide magazine. Earlier this year, Equity Loans was also named one of “Atlanta’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work” for by the National Association For Business Resources (NABR). The lender has also experienced rapid growth in 2013, adding four new offices in two new markets and making several new additions to its management team.
