American Lending Center Ranks on the 2023 Inc. 5000 Annual List of Fastest Growing Companies, Fourth Year In A Row

IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Inc. revealed today that American Lending Center (under American Lending Center Holdings (ALC)) ranks No. 3,053 on the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

This is the fourth year in a row that ALC has made the prestigious list. ALC is headquartered in Irvine, California.

“This is such an honor and validation of our business approach,” said John Shen, founder and CEO of ALC. “The continued growth of our company is a tribute to the hard work of our dedicated employees and the amazing personal customer service they provide. I am extremely proud of them and their accomplishments.”

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.
