Evolution1 – a WEX Company Named to 2014 Inc. 5000 List
FARGO, N.D.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For the seventh consecutive year, Evolution1 – a WEX Company – a leading provider of cloud-based, consumer-directed healthcare and defined contribution payments and technology solutions – has been named to the annual Inc. 5000. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy: America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.
“We are extremely excited to be named to the Inc. 5000 list for the seventh consecutive year.”
The 2014 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years.
“Our partners and team members are the reason this accomplishment is possible,” said Jeff Young, chairman and CEO of Evolution1. “We are extremely excited to be named to the Inc. 5000 list for the seventh consecutive year.”
Young credits robust technology innovation, industry-leading defined contribution functionality through 1Plan by Evolution1®, and strong partner success for Evolution1’s exceptional revenue growth over the past three years.
“What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”
