Inc. Magazine Names Porter Capital a Fastest Growing Company

Porter Capital announced it was listed again among the 5,000 fastest growing private companies in the U.S. by Inc. magazine. This is the fourth year Porter has received this honor.

Based on revenue growth, Porter Capital was listed at 4,859. Since being named to Inc.’s 5000 in 2008 Porter Capital has grown from a regional to a national company. The Inc. 5000 is an expansion of the Inc. 500 list that includes the Inc. 500 list but provides a more comprehensive look at the entrepreneurial engine, which is a critical element in national economic health and growth.

The company said during the first half of this year Porter added three new offices to increase its nationwide presence. Porter Capital now has offices in eight major metropolitan cities: Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Atlanta, St. Louis, Portland, Denver, Houston and Birmingham.

Birmingham, AL-based Porter Capital is a lender to small- and mid-sized businesses.
