For the 5th Time, Ecosystem Planning & Restoration Appears on the Inc. 5000
TOMBALL, TEXAS (August 17, 2021) – Inc. magazine today revealed that Ecosystem Planning & Restoration is No. 3,461 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“In 2020, EPR’s greatest achievement was our perseverance and ability to maintain overall company health. This included both employee health and company health… working towards keeping staff safe, healthy, busy, calm, and working towards growing ourselves in the face of adversity. We are very proud of our achievements to keep all staff busy while working on creative overhead to prepare ourselves, better ourselves, and better our industry in the tools and research that we develop. Through the pandemic we have grown as individuals and as a company and have identified areas of strength and communication we may have not been harnessing prior to the pandemic. We have created tools for better communication and stretched further into a virtual world than we ever imagined. Finding the beauty in what we have been given over the last year and continuing to work with others to better our industry is what we are striving toward.” – Sonny Kaiser – Principal
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
