Today, Inc. revealed that InterLinc Mortgage has won the Inc. 5000 award, earning the position of 3259 on its annual list which ranks America’s fastest-growing private companies. The Inc. 5000 list was first published in 1982 and is known as the most prestigious ranking of private companies in the nation. InterLinc is proud to have received this recognition for the fourth time now, with previous appearances on the Inc. 5000 list in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
In 2020, a year riddled with uncertainty and economic distress, InterLinc experienced a surge of new hires and new business. What began with just four employees in 2004, has grown to over 40+ branch locations licensed across 21 states. Year-to-date, InterLinc has added 30 new hires to their team - totaling over 475 employees nationwide.
When notified of InterLinc’s recognition on the Inc. 5000, Gene F. Thompson, III, President and CEO, said, “We are thrilled to say that InterLinc has been recognized on the Inc. 5000 for the fourth time in our company’s history. To stand among so many other great names who gained national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000 is a privilege that we do not take for granted. We recognize that this honor is a huge accomplishment and that it is the result of the hard work put forth by our entire team.”
Going forward, InterLinc has no plans to slow down when it comes to growth. The focus remains on increasing production headcount while building out operations and support departments to produce scalable growth. To support this scalability, InterLinc has launched many new initiatives this year including a new onboarding experience focused on enhanced communication and efficiency, the enactment of a SEAL team to further the success of the onboarding process and investments in marketing through new tools like Experience.com. Another priority for InterLinc is reenergizing some cultural initiatives like their own Family Foundation that gives funds and volunteer time toward non-profit organizations employees of InterLinc are actively involved with. “The future is bright for InterLinc,” says Thompson, “we are committed to our goal of becoming a top nationwide lender over the next four years with $7B in annual production through aggressive yet sustainable growth and a focus on what matters most: people.”
