“This recognition is a tribute to the men and women who faithfully serve our clients daily, ” said MLA Companies’ CEO, Seth Morgan. “Our team has aligned around a common mission to deliver creative and sustainable solutions to our clients, in a scalable way. And the result is our growth, both at the top line, but more importantly, as an organization and as people. But what might be most exciting is the growth we see in our clients – our business isn’t just scaling, we help other businesses scale too!” Morgan continued.

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.

The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, available on newsstands beginning Tuesday, August 23.

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that it requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”

MLA Companies started in 2006.  Founded by Seth Morgan and the late Harry Loyle, Morgan was the operational leader, and Loyle the financial partner. At the time Morgan was 28 years old.

Morgan was initially focused on “feeding his family” and was heavily distracted by serving in public office and pursuing politics. Years later, after Morgan’s work in politics declined, he realized that he either needed to find a new job that paid more or start taking the advice he provided to clients and applying it to himself.  The result was that Morgan started to scale MLA.

Since Morgan’s recommitted to growing MLA, MLA Companies has blossomed into one of the leading firms of its kind. MLA’s Business Redeemed Process ® serves as its organizing approach to facilitating understanding, change, and growth in itself and its clients.

What started as Morgan and Loyle and then a very small group of fractional CFOs that would meet to share some “war stories” and contacts – a group Morgan calls affectionately the “Panera Club”, has turned into a versatile, growing, progressive Firm serving the small to middle market.

MLA serves clients nationwide through its staff in Ohio, Virginia, Kentucky, and Florida. In 2019, MLA acquired one of the pioneers in the industry in Cincinnati Ohio, whose founder continues to contribute as part of the MLA team.

MLA continues to find new markets and services to offer its clients to support sustainable change under its Business Redeemed Process ® model.
