Protect My Car Named to TBBJ’s 2018 Florida Fast 100
September 28, 2018—Nationwide vehicle extended warranty company, "Protect My Car" has been ranked 43rd on the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s 2018 Florida Fast 100 list, which recognizes the fastest-growing businesses throughout Florida.
In order to qualify for the Florida Fast 100 list, nominated businesses must have launched prior to January 1, 2014, and be headquartered in Florida, privately-held and for-profit. In addition, they must have generated revenues of at least $1 million in 2015 or at least $5 million in 2017, and demonstrated substantially above-market consecutive annual revenue growth from 2015 to 2017. Businesses were also required to submit documentation to verify revenue figures.
“We are honored and excited to be named to the Florida Fast 100,” says Barbie Vandenheuvel, chief operations officer at Protect My Car. “The recognition is a testament to our employees, who go above and beyond to provide our customers nationwide with exceptional service and support."
In August, Protect My Car was ranked 19th on the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Fast 50 list, which uses the same methodology as the Florida Fast 100, but pertains to businesses that are headquartered in the Tampa Bay Area.
In 2017, Protect My Car was named by the Tampa Bay Business Journal as the 2nd best place to work in Tampa Bay, and the company ranked 663rd on the Inc. 5000. It was also the first time ever that claims paid out to Protect My Car customers nationwide surpassed the $10 million level.
"In addition, it is inspiring to see that almost half of the fastest-growing businesses in Florida are located in the Tampa Bay area," Vandenheuvel says. "This is one of the most dynamic and energized areas of the country, and the future looks even brighter.”
