Have you heard? The Houston Business Journal recently unveiled its list of fastest-growing companies of 2020—and Liongard comes in at #1!
Year-over-year revenue growth determines placement on the list, and we’ve grown an astronomical 8,248% from 2017 to 2019. (For comparison, the #2 company on the list grew by 688%, and last year’s fastest-growing company grew by 2,366%.)
“We are happy to receive this recognition from the HBJ Fast 100,” said Liongard’s CEO, Joe Alapat. “Coming in at #1 validates the efforts we’ve taken at Liongard to build an amazing team and culture. I am personally so proud of everything our team has accomplished—enabling IT Managed Service Providers to operate at 10x with our software platform. Every step of the way, the excitement and support from our customers, investors, and advisors have helped us thrust forward.”
A Recipe for Success
The industry experience and innovative leadership of Liongard’s founders, Alapat and COO Vincent Tran, coupled with our amazingly talented and dedicated team, have launched us from our humble beginnings to securing $17 million in Series B funding earlier this year.
The team itself has grown, as well, from around 10 in fiscal year 2018 to its current count of about 70—and we’re all operating by Liongard’s core values:
- Listen & Learn. We’re focused on learning as much as we can.
- Adapt & Automate. We respond to and incorporate what we’ve learned.
- Execute as a Team. Collaboration helps us work toward the same goals.
- Focus on Visible Progress. We build off of our successes so we’re always moving forward.
- Teach. Providing thought leadership strengthens our team and the industry as a whole.
A Curated Culture
The leaders’ passion trickles down to create a fun, engaging culture for our skilled team, keeping spirits high—even through the pandemic.
“I’m beyond delighted to see Liongard win this award,” remarked Melissa Porterfield, Liongard’s Director of People and Culture. “This company has a culture that is woven into the very fabric of what we do, and it shows! Great leaders create great cultures and great cultures create engaged employees, who in turn produce amazing results.”
CFO Josh Tabin added, “Ranking #1 on the HBJ Fast 100 is validation for the hard work that our teammates have put into making Liongard such an incredible place to work.”
“We thank our partners for believing in our team enough to help us achieve this milestone,” Tabin continued. “After we take a moment to appreciate this achievement, we will also reflect on how lucky and privileged we are to be in the position we’ve found ourselves in.”
