Inc. Magazine Unveils 35th Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000

The Flagship Management Team Ranks No. 2807 on the 2016 Inc. 5000 for Bintelli LLC and citEcar Electric Vehicles (the highest of any powersport manufacturer/distributor) with Three-Year Sales Growth of 124%

NEW YORK, September 12, 2016Inc. magazine today ranked the management team behind Flagship Powersports #2807 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This is the highest ranking on the list for any powersports manufacturer, distributor, or dealer. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

“To be honored by Inc. 5000 as the leading powersports manufacturer and distributor is an exciting accomplishment for our team,” says Flagship Powersports and Bintelli President, Justin Jackrel. “It validates all of the hard work our team puts in every year to continue to better our products, offerings, and dealer network. Additionally, our newest program released this year – the Flagship Dealership Program – has been created to bring young entrepreneurs into the powersports dealership industry. We assist them with fundraising, training, and the setup and daily operation of their dealership, along with providing inventory and coaching them on a daily basis to ensure they enter the ranks of the top tier dealers nationwide. With the Flagship Program, that will continue to infuse new talent into our industry, and the never-ending quest for internal improvement, Bintelli and citEcar Electric Vehicles are only beginning to scratch the surface of the contributions we can bring to our industry. I would like to thank Inc. 5000 for this prestigious honor, as well as all of our amazing staff and members of our dealer family!”

The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, TX. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as best-selling author and strategist Tony Robbins, SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, Cornerstone OnDemand founder, president and CEO Adam Miller, Marvell Technology Group director and co-founder Weili Dai, and New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan.
