Austin, TX (August 17, 2021) — For the tenth consecutive year, AffiniPay has been named to Inc. Magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing, privately held companies in America. Seeing a five-year revenue growth of 210%, AffiniPay continues its market leadership in the $5.3B legal, accounting, architectural and associations industries. Making the Inc. 5000 list for a full decade is an accomplishment achieved by less than 150 companies in the history of the Inc. 5000 list. AffiniPay, a new inductee into the Inc. 5000 10X club, now joins the ranks next to companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, and Oracle.

This financial growth is fueled by the continuous delivery of technology payment features to the professional services industry, including mobile technology, contactless payment QR codes and custom software integrations to support large enterprise firms. This commitment coupled with a strong focus on employee and customer engagement has also earned AffiniPay recognition as a Best Place to Work and holds a net promoter score of 72, which is best in class for SaaS offerings.

“We are so excited and honored to have made the Inc. 5000 list for a tenth consecutive year. This recognition exhibits the dedication of our high performing teams, ongoing collaboration with our integrated partners, and the trust our clients have placed in us,” said Dru Armstrong, CEO of AffiniPay. “Making this list for the tenth year in a row is a testament to the incredible company that AffiniPay is. Our team’s hard work, commitment to customer service, and dedication to making the lives of professionals easier is what makes AffiniPay’s growth continue each year.”

AffiniPay is continuing to scale by expanding its leadership team with the announcement of its new CEO, Dru Armstrong, and the appointment of new executive board member Stuart C. Harvey Jr.

“I am so proud of the team and the growth we have seen here at AffiniPay over the past decade,” said Amy Porter, Executive Chairman and Founder of AffiniPay. “Being nominated to the Inc. 5000 list 10 years in a row, and being ranked next to companies like Microsoft and Oracle show the growth and the bright future ahead of AffiniPay as we continue to grow, expand, and dominate our markets.”

The companies named to the 2021 Inc. 5000 list, on average, have grown sixfold since 2016. The 2021 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth rate of 543 percent, and median revenue of $11.1 million. Together, the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 list added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
