Cherokee Legal Holdings Ranks No. 83 On Inc. Magazine’s List Of The Southeast Region’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

Inc. Magazine today revealed that Cherokee Legal Holdings is No. 83 on its third annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: Southeast list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing Southeast private companies based in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Southeast economy’s most dynamic segment, its independent small businesses.

We are thrilled to have made the Southeast Regional Inc. 5000 list, as this is where the bulk of our partners and clients are headquartered. “We have also been honored on the national Inc. 5000 list three times,” said Gain CEO Reid Zeising. “It is humbling and rewarding to see our commitment to leveling the insurance playing field, with our SaaS-based AI-enhanced LOP servicing platform and suite of services, validated on such an exclusive list.”

The companies on this list show a remarkable rate of growth across all industries in the Southeast region. Between 2019 and 2021, these private companies had an average growth rate of 673 percent and, in 2021 alone, they added 25,844 jobs and nearly $7 billion to the Southeast region’s economy.

This year’s Inc. 5000 Regional winners represent one of the most exceptional and exciting lists of America’s off-the-charts growth companies. They’re disrupters and job creators, and all delivered an outsize impact on the economy. “Remember their names and follow their lead. These are the companies you’ll be hearing about for years to come,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. Magazine.
