PARSIPPANY, N.J. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Inc. magazine today named RedVision, the premier independent nationwide provider of real property title data, search examination and curative-ready solutions, to the Build 100, a new business index that honors an elite tier of companies that have expanded their employment in each of the past five years. The index was created by studying the growth performance of millions of U.S. midmarket companies between 2007 and 2012. This inaugural list celebrates agile, enduring firms across a spectrum of industries, including software platforms, IT services and health-care providers among others.
The Build 100 is not just another business award; it is a predictive tool built on rigorous economic research showing that the only statistically significant predictor of a company’s future success is sustained job growth over time. Every Build 100 company has added jobs in each of the last five years; a feat worth celebrating in any economic climate.
"RedVision has experienced substantial growth and accomplishments since our inception — especially in the last five years," says Brian Twibell, RedVision’s chief executive officer. "We are proud to be named to the Build 100 list. The honor demonstrates our continued commitment to technology development, solutions expertise and dedication to our personnel, customers and business partners."
As one of the Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year award recipients, RedVision is also a past award winner for Inc. magazine’s 500-fastest growing private companies and New Jersey Technology Council’s Company of the Year.
Inc. unveiled the full Build 100 list in its March 2014 issue and on affiliate website, TheBuildNetwork.com. To make the cut, companies had to have achieved employee growth in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. Companies founded after 2008, or those with a current U.S. workforce smaller than 85 employees, were not considered. In addition, all Build 100 companies have agreed to participate in a year-long research initiative studying the key drivers of sustained growth.
“Seventy-two percent of all new U.S. jobs are created by 1 percent of companies,” says Inc. economist-in-residence Gary Kunkle. “The Build 100 represents that top 1 percent of that 1 percent. They should be celebrated, but they must also be studied so that we can better understand — and replicate — the decisions, priorities, investments and strategies that helped them grow.”

The Build 100 is not ranked. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by Dec. 31, 2008. They had to be U.S.-based, for profit and independent — not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies. The minimum number of employees for 2013 is 85; the minimum 2012 revenue was $8.5 million. All Build 100 companies must also agree to participate in a year-long research initiative studying the drivers of sustained growth. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Build 100 will be featured in the March 2014 issue on the affiliate website TheBuildNetwork.com.
