Zeel has been recognized as one of the “Fastest Growing Companies” by the Financial Times in its inaugural FT Americas “Fastest Growing Companies” list. The ranking lists the top 500 companies in the Americas that have achieved the highest growth in revenues between 2015 and 2018, with Zeel ranking #173 on the list.
The FT Americas list notably comes at a challenging and uncertain time for the global economy. “We are truly honored to be recognized by such a venerated news institution as the Financial Times, said Samer Hamadeh, Founder and CEO of Zeel. “The FT not only has a deep understanding of what it takes to build a great business, but also how to meet and overcome the unprecedented challenges posed by this pandemic. We have always worked to balance industry-leading technology with the best possible customer experience. This unusual time has given our team the opportunity to truly innovate. The entrepreneurial spirit is never more evident than during times of crisis, so particularly now, we are proud of this recognition from such a prestigious organization.”
The FT list was compiled with Statista, a research company, and ranks entrants from across the Americas by compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in revenue between 2015 and 2018. Additional criteria includes independent companies headquartered in one of 20 American countries with revenue of at least $100,000 generated in 2015, at least $1.5m generated in 2018, revenue growth between 2015 and 2018 that was primarily organic (i.e. “internally” stimulated). The technology sector – which includes Zeel –is led in large partby the US and accounts for a quarter of the overall list.
