NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 19, 2020--

Inc. magazine revealed that Vaya Group, headquartered in Chicago, IL, was selected for its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The Inc. list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent.
