More than 200 Georgia private companies made Inc. Magazine's 5000 list.

Inc. Magazine has recently released its seventh annual Inc. 5000 list - a list of the nation's fastest growing private companies. According to Inc., the list represents the most important segment of the economy, independent entrepreneurs.

"Not all the companies on the Inc. 5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy," says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.

There are over 200 Georgia companies on the Inc. 5000 List. The highest ranking Georgia company is Innovolt, based out of Atlanta, coming in at #31. GSC Packaging, also based out of Atlanta, is ranked #64.

oXYGen Financial, ranked #1514, is a financial and lifestyle management company that is striving to be a leader in the financial services industry.

"We're humbled by this honor and proud to find ourselves in such good company," said Kile Lewis, who along with co-founder and co-CEO Ted Jenkin established oXYGen in XXXX. "While it is great that Inc. recognized our fantastic growth over the last three years, we are most excited by the number of grateful clients we are able to serve and the direction our company is taking. We continue to find new ways to grow our business, while maintaining what makes us uniquely oXYGen Financial. One of our growth strategies going forward is to offer a nationwide franchise opportunity to other like-minded, independent financial advisors."
