Blue Compass RV Named to Prestigious 2023 Inc. 5000 Annual List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies
August 15, 2023
Blue Compass RV is #3 fastest growing company in the automotive category
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 15, 2023 — Inc. revealed today that Blue Compass RV is #3 in the automotive category on the 2023 Inc. 5000, 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. Blue Compass RV has become a force in the recreational vehicle industry since the company’s founding just 5 years ago with explosive revenue growth to over $3 billion in 2022.
“We are proud to be the fastest growing RV retail company in history, recognized on this year’s Inc. 5000 list,” says Blue Compass RV Founder, CEO and President Jon Ferrando. “We have a dedicated team of hardworking associates at 100+ dealerships across 33 states and look forward to continued growth in the coming years to provide world-class service for Americans in every stage of their RV journey.”
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.”
