Landmark secures 929th spot on Inc. 5000 list
SOUTH JORDAN, UTAH, August 17, 2016 – Landmark Home Warranty was recently listed #929 on the 2016 Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies in the nation. This is the fourth time the company has been honored on the list. In 2013, the first time they placed, they ranked #1909.
Alma Jeppson, CEO and Owner of Landmark Home Warranty, said he credits the hard work of all of the Landmark employees for this award.
“I’m so proud of Landmark and our amazing team for getting us this far,” Jeppson said. “We have grown a lot in a short amount of time, and I owe it to the entire company working together to give our customers the best experience possible.”
A rank on Inc. 5000’s list of fastest-growing companies is determined by a privately held company’s revenue growth from the fiscal year of 2012 compared to the fiscal year of 2015. According to Inc. 5000, the total revenue generated by all the companies featured on the list grossed over $200 billion in 2015. Landmark experienced a 428% increase, making $4.9 million in 2012 and increasing that to $26.5 million in 2015.
Chris Smith, President of Landmark Home Warranty, says it feels amazing to look back just three years ago and see all the company has accomplished.
“On the whole, we’ve just become better at responding to what our customers need,” Smith said. “We’re committed each year to establish goals that ensure that we’re delivering remarkable service to our customers, and this award is the result of those goals being met.”
Some of Landmark’s goals include increasing speed of service for all customers and having high rankings from their customer’s experiences. Creating jobs within the community has been another goal for Landmark, including hiring a recruiter to find the best possible candidates.
According to Inc. 5000, the companies featured on the list also created 640,000 jobs. Landmark alone grew by 82 employees in the past three years.
“I’m so pleased that we’re able to open Landmark up as a place for individuals to learn, grow and help people,” Jeppson said of this tremendous growth. “Landmark is all about giving back to the community, and that means giving them the opportunities for jobs, too.”
In all of this growth, has anything been lost? Many companies that grow so quickly from such a small number see a loss in culture. Smith said that hasn’t happened at Landmark – if anything, the culture has been magnified.
“One of our internal values we uphold is to ‘Protect the Landmark Family,’” Smith said. “We truly feel like every member on our team is part of our family. We love and appreciate each employee who works here.”
Besides being ranked #929, Landmark was also named #13 on top insurance companies and #13 for top Salt Lake City companies.
This prestigious award has featured other successful independent businesses over the years. Landmark Home Warranty is in the companionship of companies such as LinkedIn, Zillow, and Microsoft.
The Inc. 5000 list was started in 1982 to recognize those companies that were most successful in the United States. 2016’s list is the 35th annual list to be published through Inc. Media.
