Landmark CEO says win shows the company’s dedication to providing remarkable service for their customers is paying off.
August 18, 2016, SALT LAKE CITY – The recognition keeps coming for Landmark Home Warranty, which was recognized last week as the 22nd fastest growing company in Utah by the Utah Business Magazine.
To create the annual list known as the “Utah Fast 50,” the Utah Business Magazine compiles financial data from a variety of Utah businesses to determine who has grown the quickest over the past five fiscal years (2011-2015).
Businesses are only eligible to be ranked on the list if they have been in business for more than those five years. The businesses had to submit their data to an independent accountant who analyzed the data and found which business ranked where.
Landmark Home Warranty, which was started in 2004 by owner and CEO Alma Jeppson, has grown over 1000% in the last five years. Not only has the company increased their profits by 24.4 million dollars since 2011, the company as a whole has grown substantially. They’ve moved from a 4,500 square foot office to a brand new 25,000 square foot floor to adequately hold the 200 or so individuals Landmark employs. To put that in perspective, in the end of 2011, the company only employed 18.
Alma Jeppson, Landmark Home Warranty’s founder, owner and CEO, said ranking #22 on the Utah Fast 50 list is humbling.
“When I look back to where we started, even if I look back five years ago, having a company that is 200 employees strong was a goal that, at times, seemed unattainable,” Jeppson said. “But our team worked hard and focused on giving our customers remarkable service, and here we are!”
Jeppson said the ranking signified more than just an increase in profits.
“We keep seeing this growth because we focus on our customers and try to do right by them,” he said. “When you try to deliver remarkable service in every interaction, you will ultimately succeed. This ranking on the Utah Fast 50 is a testament to that fact.”
The awardees were recognized at a luncheon, where they had the opportunity to hear Utah Business Magazine’s Sam Urie speak on how a ranking on the Fast 50 indicates the company is providing a product that customers need, as well as building strong leadership within their company.
Riley Schroder, Landmark Home Warranty’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, was able to attend the luncheon and accept the award. Schroder said he was proud of all the work his team and the company on a whole has done to make this award a reality.
“Growing this fast in such a short amount of time shows the hard work and dedication our company has to Landmark’s home owners, real estate partners, and contractors,” he said. “To be there and accept the award made me so grateful for each and every one of our employees.”
Along with the ranking and luncheon, Landmark Home Warranty will be rewarded with an article published in Utah Business Magazine about Alma Jeppson. The article will be printed in the upcoming September issue.
