COLUMBIA, M.D. — Inc. magazine revealed that Leap ranked 63 on its third annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: Mid-Atlantic list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies based in Washington, D.C., Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.
Based in Columbia, Md., Leap is ranked amongst the highest performing companies on this prestigious list that captures the dynamic economic segment of independent small business. The recognition comes at a moment of significant growth for the company, which received a majority growth investment from private equity firm Nexa Equity LLC in December 2021. Leap has also been active in expanding its offerings to support customer growth and retention, most recently announcing the acquisition of CRM and project management platform JobProgress and developing new platform integrations with industry partners such as CompanyCam.
“For the past year, our team has energetically worked to reach new customers, enhance our product and grow our business, and we’re thrilled to see those efforts recognized with this placement on the Inc. 5000 Regionals list for a second straight year,” said Patrick Fingles, CEO of Leap. “I’m proud of the hard work and dedication our team has devoted to our customers and look forward to what we’ll be able to accomplish in 2022.”
The companies on this list show a remarkable rate of growth across all industries in the Mid-Atlantic region. Between 2018 and 2020, these 131 private companies had an average growth rate of 162% and, in 2020 alone, added 7,426 jobs and $1.9 billion to the Mid-Atlantic region’s economy.
