Validating our high-tech, high-touch approach to serving our partners and merchants came this month as Celero Commerce has been recognized in Inc. Magazine’s 2023 list of fastest-growing companies in America. Achieving 321% revenue growth from 2019-2022 is a direct result of a business model that puts small businesses and their communities first. The company ranked as the fastest-growing financial services firm in Tennessee.

“We all want to grow our companies, but the only way to do that is to really start with the customer first and then work backwards,” said Kevin Jones, founder and Chief Executive Officer at Celero.  “As with all recognitions and achievements, earning a place in the Inc. 5000 is a team win, and it just shows that having a vision, taking risks, and working hard as individuals and in collaboration across the company is a winning formula.”

The renowned Inc. 5000  ranks the top private businesses by revenue growth. The 2023 Inc. 5000 measures participating companies by their growth rates since 2019. These companies have reached a median growth of 219%, creating $358 billion in revenue combined. Despite the challenges presented by COVID-19, inflation, and supply chain shortages, Celero and the others recognized in the 2023 Inc. 5000 have added 1,186,006 jobs to the U.S. economy.

Celero was one of 115 Tennessee firms listed, with 64 of those based in Nashville, including the number one fastest growing company in the country . “We are proud to stand alongside so many of  our sister companies here in Nashville and across this great state,” added Jones. “It’s a tribute to all of our stakeholders in the entrepreneurial ecosystem here that Tennessee and Nashville are leading the way in amplifying big ideas and turning dreams into reality.”
