August 23, 2019— Kidder Mathews has been named an Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Company in America by Inc. Magazine. This is the sixth time the firm has received this prestigious recognition, also earning the distinction in 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, and 2013.
Inc. Magazine tracks private company growth and ranks it against national peers. The list represents a unique look at the most successful independent companies in the nation.
The Inc. 5000 list shows accelerated growth among the companies recognized this year compared to years past. The 2019 list reached an average three-year growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent.
The Inc. 5000’s combined revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
The fact that Kidder Mathews holds a spot on the list is not surprising. The firm’s enduring record of achievement, both from a transactional performance that now stands at $9 billion annually, as well as industry and business recognition, reflects the company’s high standards.
The firm and Jeff Lyon, its CEO, are also the recipients of 400 awards and recognitions from West Coast and national publications including Lifetime Achievement Award in Commercial Real Estate Leadership, CEO of The Year, and Ernst & Young’s NW Entrepreneur of the Year. The host of accolades includes 52 Hall of Fame and Best Places to Work awards in multiple West Coast publications, seven awards for Fastest Growing Company in Washington, the firm’s HQ, and multiple rankings for largest and best commercial real estate firm.
Kidder Mathews attributes its fast-growing success to its unique platform, and to the national trend of consolidation in the commercial real estate industry among publicly held firms, which is typically not favorable to professional service providers. Kidder Mathews is a privately held firm that is known for its strong marketing and research support, a streamlined management structure, the opportunity for equity for its professionals, and a commission structure that is considerably more favorable to its brokers than its competitors.
