Atlanta-Based Brightwell Enters ACG’s Top 40 Fastest-Growing Companies in Georgia


Brightwell Named ACG’s 40 Fastest-Growing Companies in Georgia

Atlanta-based global payments technology company, Brightwell, has marked a significant achievement in its growth journey. The company proudly announced its recognition as one of the 2024 Fast 40 companies. This prestigious acknowledgment, hosted by the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) Atlanta Chapter, celebrates the top fastest-growing middle market companies within Georgia, highlighting their integral contributions to the state’s economy through considerable revenue and employment growth.

Under the insightful leadership of CEO Larry Hipp, Brightwell has seen an impressive trajectory of expansion, characterized by the launch of three innovative products that cater to various financial transaction needs. Latitude, a business to consumer (B2C) global digital refunds and payouts solution; ReadyRemit, a consumer to consumer (C2C) digital remittance solution designed for financial institutions; and Arden, a comprehensive fraud monitoring platform, have collectively escalated the company’s revenue and expanded its workforce. This flourish in business has led Brightwell to strategically acqui-hire 23 full-time professionals, further enriching the company’s technical acumen and innovative capabilities.

“Standing out as a growing company in Georgia’s thriving economy is challenging, but our focus on delivering top-notch payment solutions has driven our tremendous growth. Being named to the Fast 40 is a testament to our team’s hard work and will continue to fuel our future,” expressed CEO Larry Hipp, sharing his views on the company’s remarkable recognition and its foundational pillars of success.

The ACG’s Fast 40 Awards not only look into the financial growth of the nominated companies but also consider the credibility of this growth, with an independent accounting firm, Cherry Bekaert LLP, validating the revenue and employment growth figures. Following this, the ACG committee conducts thorough interviews with the qualified applicants, contributing to a transparent and meritorious selection process for the winners.

Brooks Morris, Chair of the Georgia Fast 40 Awards and Principal with Cresa, highlighted the collective achievement of the nominated companies, stating, “These 40+ companies represent almost 7,500 new jobs and over 2.3 billion dollars in revenue growth over the last three years.” He further touched on the supportive business ecosystem and the challenges of a tight labor market, despite the honorees’ employment of almost 17,000 individuals, underscoring the significant impact these companies have on the local economy and workforce.

The celebratory event for the 2024 Georgia Fast 40 Awards will take place at Flourish Atlanta on June 27, 2024, where ACG Atlanta will present the awards and unveil the full rankings, acknowledging the exceptional growth and contributions of these thriving companies.
