PHOENIX – (Aug. 19, 2015) – OneGuard Home Warranties has been named to Inc. magazine’s 2015 list of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies, which takes a comprehensive look at one of the most important segments of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.
“OneGuard has redefined the way home warranties are viewed, which is what has continued to propel our growth year after year,” said Scott Smith, CEO of OneGuard. “It’s an honor to be recognized as part of Inc. 5000’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies and a true testament to the dedication of our team.”
Phoenix-based OneGuard provides homeowners across Arizona and Texas with peace-of-mind through traditional warranty services to fix major household systems and appliances. Additionally, the company’s progressive business model delivers home maintenance services, including lawn care, pest control, window washing and HVAC tune-ups, which are typically not covered by home warranty companies.
“The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”
The 2015 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $205 billion, generating 647,000 jobs from 2011 to 2014. During that timeframe, OneGuard achieved 92-percent sales growth and added 64 jobs in order to keep pace with the demand for its services, ranking the company at 3,504.
Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.
OneGuard will be recognized at the Inc. 5000 Conference and Gala on Oct. 21-23, 2015 in Orlando, Fla.
