Metairie-Based Flexicrew Technical Services Makes Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Companies

METAIRIE, La. – Flexicrew Technical Services, an IT staffing and talent acquisition firm based in Metairie, has been included in the 38th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The announcement was made in a press release.

Flexicrew Technical Services (FTS), ranked number 287 on Inc. magazine’s list, has demonstrated its ability to sustain rapid growth as the number one fastest growing company in Louisiana and one of the fastest growing human resource service providers in the U.S. Over the past three consecutive years, FTS has increased sales by 1,541-percent.

“FTS growth is fueled by a large and ever expanding roster of loyal customers who give our team members opportunities to do great work. We thank our customers for their continuing confidence and trust,” said FTS cofounder and managing partner, Brandon Smith.  “We have been proud to confidentially assist candidates find their best match resulting in career flexibility.”

FTS is a partner company of Flexicrew Staffing, based in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

“We are thrilled to be recognized among the industry’s most innovative and highest growth companies that consistently make a positive impact on economic growth and peoples’ lives,” said Misty Brennan, cofounder and managing partner, FTS. “The credit goes to our talented and committed family of employees. Our team’s drive and dedication propelled FTS into the top 6-percent of the fastest growing companies.”

The 2019 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2015 to 2018. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2015. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent–not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies–as of December 31, 2018. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2015 is $100,000; the minimum for 2018 is $2 million.

“For decades, Inc. has welcomed the fastest-growing private companies in America, and this year’s set of winners places the bar very high,” says Inc. editor in chief, James Ledbetter. “During a stretch when the economy grew just 12-percent, that’s a result most businesses could only dream of.”

The list offers a look at the most successful independent small businesses within the American economy. Dell, Domino’s, LinkedIn, Pandora, Timberland, and Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 10 through 12 in Phoenix.

FTS, as one of the top Inc. 500 companies in the Inc. 5000 list, will be featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine.
