August 17, 2021 – Inc. magazine revealed that Scottsdale based Brander Group is ranked No. 6 overall on the annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America.

In 2020, Brander Group had over $31 Million in direct sales and $20 Million in escrow transactions, total over $51 Million in total sales, and a 3-year growth of over 27,000%.

This recognition is very special considering the crisis the world had to endure in 2020.  We are fortunate to have been able to persevere through a time in which many other companies were forced to downsize.  In fact, we assisted many organizations offset losses and prevent layoffs by helping them sell IP assets, which made our work feel even more gratifying” said Jake Brander, President.

Among the 5,000 companies that made the list, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
