Joins Esteemed List of Fastest Growing Private Companies in the US
AAE Speakers Bureau | All American Entertainment has been named to the 2023 Inc. 5000 by Inc. Magazine, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorées on the Inc. 5000.This is the third time that the company has received this recognition, having been previously named to the Inc. 5000 list in 2018 and 2019.
“This honor represents the hard work and resilience of our entire team,” said Greg Friedlander, founder and CEO, AAE Speakers Bureau. “The pandemic completely changed the corporate events industry that we serve, and we took that challenge and turned it into an opportunity. We are very grateful to our clients who put their trust in us every single day.”
The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.
“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”
