Guzman Energy Ranks No. 1,152 Among America’s 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies and in Top 30 Energy Companies

Denver, Aug. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Inc. revealed that Guzman Energy is No. 1,152 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses.

This is Guzman Energy’s first time appearing on the Inc. 5000 list. The company ranks No. 30 among the fastest-growing energy companies in America, and is recognized as the No. 43 fastest-growing company in Colorado, coming in at No. 31 in Denver.

“Our country is clearly ready for an energy transition, and that’s what we’re mobilizing,” said Christopher M. Riley, CEO of Guzman Energy. “We are proud to be supporting our customers in this movement and are honored to be recognized as one of the fastest-growing private energy companies in America.”

The company was recently ranked on the third annual Inc. Regionals Rocky Mountain list of the fastest-growing private companies in the region with a two-year revenue growth rate of 257%. Earlier this year, Guzman also appeared on Fast Company’s World’s Most Innovative Companies list for 2022, landing as the sixth most innovative energy company.

Guzman Energy is a wholesale power provider partnering with local communities and cooperatives to source affordable and reliable power supply. The company also works with customers to develop renewable power generation projects, bringing local power generation and new economic opportunities to communities.

The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.
