Company Ranks No. 122 for Two-Year Revenue Growth

Bedminster, NJ – March 17, 2021Inc. magazine today revealed that Zelis, the leading payments company in healthcare, has been named to its second annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: New York City Metro list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing New York City area-based private companies.  Zelis ranks as No. 122 with a two-year revenue growth of 48 percent.  Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the NYC area economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.

“We are honored to be an Inc. 5000 company for 10 years and now recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in the New York City area,” said R. Andrew Eckert, Zelis CEO.  “This distinction and our continuous growth are attributable to our team’s impact and partnership with our payer clients, our payment and provider network members and our partners to deliver more affordable and transparent healthcare.”

The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in the New York City area.  Between 2017 and 2019, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 214 percent and, in 2019 alone, they employed more than 48,000 people and added nearly $9 billion to the NYC Metro area economy.  Companies based in Stamford, Connecticut, New York City, and central New Jersey brought in the highest revenue overall.

“This list proves the power of companies in the New York City area no matter the industry,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk.  “The impressive revenues and growth rates prove the insight and diligence of CEOs and that these businesses are here to stay.”
