Sente Mortgage is pleased to announce that Inc. magazine has ranked them No. 1437 on its sixth annual Inc. 500|5000, their exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.
Sente Mortgage received the ranking by growing revenues 209 percent between 2008 and 2011. The company, now employing just over 100 people across the state of Texas, was ranked No. 82 nationally in the financial services category. Sente Mortgage joins Yelp, yogurt maker Chobani, Giftcards.com, KIND and famed hat maker Tilly’s, among other prominent brands featured on this year’s list.
“Our team at Sente is responsible for this achievement as well as our earlier number 6 ranking on the 2011 Austin Business Journal’s Fast 50 – their list of fastest growing Central Texas private companies. Without our dedicated staff and our business partners this wouldn’t have been possible,” says CEO, Tom Rhodes.
In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2012 Inc. 500|5000 companies remains an impressive 97 percent. The companies on this year’s list report having created over 400,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $299 billion.

“Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.
