DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- HousingWire announced today that the nomination period is now open for the publication's inaugural HW Fast50 program, which will rank the 50 fastest-growing companies spanning the U.S. housing economy.
"The present and the future of the housing economy, from mortgages to real estate and everywhere in between, is defined by those companies whose strong revenue growth gives them a competitive edge," said Paul Jackson, CEO and Publisher at HousingWire. "The HW Fast50 program celebrates those select companies who are inventing the industry's future, today."
Making the list each year is a special honor reserved for a select few companies who are finding creative ways to drive continued revenue growth in an ever-changing industry climate.
The final ranking of the 2014 HW Fast50 will be published in the October 2014 issue of HW Magazine, and firms will be ranked on percent revenue growth covering the 2012-2013 calendar year.
"We think this is a unique program in an industry that drives as much as 1/3rd of the nation's economic output each year," said Jacob Gaffney, executive editor at HousingWire. "What's more, we're not looking at just privately or publicly-held companies -- we think revenue growth isn't limited to a specific ownership structure, but is a function of great products and a company's ability to execute."
Both public and privately-held companies are eligible to ranked in the HW Fast50, with privately-held companies encouraged to complete a free application to be considered for a ranking in this year's listing. Applications will be accepted through August 30, 2014.
