OMAHA, NEB., March 16, 2021 – Carson Group is excited to announce that it has been ranked #135 on the 2021 Inc. 5000 Regionals: Midwest list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Carson Group helps financial advisors unleash their firm’s full potential by providing marketing, compliance, technology, investment strategies, succession planning and M&A support, and coaching for advisory firms. In 2020, Carson Group was recognized as #2,717 on the Inc. 5000 national list.

Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Midwest economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.

“We are a homegrown company, and we work with small business owners across the country who have built their own advisory firms from the ground up,” said Founder and CEO Ron Carson. “It is so important to nurture small business—we’ve seen that especially throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, which has disproportionately affected small businesses but has also shone a light on their adaptability and resiliency. We are extremely honored and humbled to be recognized by Inc. as a regional leader.”

“This list proves the power of companies in Midwest states no matter the industry,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “The impressive revenues and growth rates prove the insight and diligence of CEOs and that these businesses are here to stay.”

Between 2017 and 2019, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 199 percent and, in 2019 alone, they employed more than 43,000 people and added more than $11 billion to the Midwest economy.
