TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, August 16, 2022 – Today, Inc. revealed that Elite Business Strategies, LLC (EBS) is No. 196 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We are honored to be among the other exceptional private companies, both past, and present, to appear on the Inc. 5000 list. EBS is built on a foundation of advocacy achieved through operational excellence, research, practice, and technology. Receiving the rank of 196, along with being among the Top 500 is a testament to the deliberate and dedicated work performed by the Elite team for our clients and customers over the past 11 years, “says Princess Ousley, President, and CEO of Elite Business Strategies LLC.
The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 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 top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23.

“ The COVID-19 pandemic has had a noticeable impact on the way private companies operate. EBS is no exception. The difference maker in our success is our team. We are a people-centric organization in our approach to operations and outreach. Our team does not think of themselves as business people but we are in the business of people. Receiving the 196 overall ranking on this year’s Inc. 5000 list enables us to expand our obligation felt for others through advocacy, empathy, and inspiration, “says Mrs. Ousley.
