TAMPA BAY, FL, March 23, 2021
Bluewater has done it again! In addition to the ongoing recognition the past few years from Adweek magazine’s Fastest Growing Companies and the national Inc. magazine 5000 Fastest Growing Companies, as of March 16th, Bluewater is ranked no. 188 on the second annual Inc. 5000 Regionals. This list recognizes the most prestigious, fastest-growing Florida-based private companies. Born from the longstanding national Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Florida economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in Florida. Between 2017 and 2019, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 202 percent and, in 2019 alone, they employed more than 83,000 people and added nearly $11 billion to the Florida economy. Companies based in major metro areas—Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Tampa, and Orlando—brought in the highest revenue overall.
As always, Bluewater is honored to be part of this elite community of private companies that strive to be industry leaders and support our local Tampa Bay community. Bluewater CEO, Rob Fallon, stated that “we are going to continue to grow the heck out of this company in 2021. I’ve been part of this impressive organization with our Chairman of the Board, Andy Latimer, since the beginning. I’m so proud of where we have been and the long, exciting journey we’ve taken since 2001. Take note, big things are on the horizon for Bluewater.”
