NEW YORK, August 17, 2021 – Inc. magazine today revealed that vChief is No. 2,156 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“We are incredibly thankful, humbled and honored to be included on the 2021 Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies”, said Maddy Niebauer, Chief Executive and Founder. “Being ranked 2,156 is a remarkable accomplishment only 5 years after launching, as a woman-owned, bootstrapped company. We hope and expect this is the first of many years on this list! We share this honor with our chief of staff network, leadership team and clients across the country, without whom we could never have seen this immense growth.”

The Inc. 5000 list ranks organizations based on percentage growth over a three-year period, and vChief achieved a 201% growth rate during this period – ranking at No. 2,156 in the nation and No. 17 in Wisconsin. vChief was able to overcome the many obstacles it faced during 2020’s unprecedented challenges based on its virtual model. This enabled the organization to continue to lead and support its clients in achieving their goals despite the shifts in strategy, operating models and staffing.

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.”
