The Tampa Bay Business Journal today announced its 2013 Tampa Bay Business 100 list. LexJet debuted on the list this year at the 66 spot.
As one of the companies that have not previously appeared on the list, the Tampa Bay Business Journal profiled LexJet as part of the feature with the goal of bringing their readers “up to date information about these important contributors to the local business community.”
“The Tampa Bay Business 100 is an impressive bunch. These privately held companies employ nearly a quarter of a million people collectively, including about 65,000 in the Tampa Bay area. They had combined revenue of $49.6 billion in 2012, about the same as the gross national product of Guatemala or Uruguay and larger than the GNP of some 75 smaller countries,” commented Margie Manning, quality and content editor for the Tampa Bay Business Journal. “These companies serve as an economic barometer for the Bay area. They often buy local, partnering with other Bay area businesses, and with 2012 combined revenue for the TBB100 up about 5.1 percent from 2011, indications are strong that the recovery is on track.”
LexJet was recognized for its double-digit growth in 2012 and its dynamic business model, which is bringing innovation to new markets, serving more customers with its personalized support, and providing employment opportunities.
