Marqeta named in Inc.’s first-annual Best-Led Companies

We’re proud to be named in Inc.’s first annual Best-Led Companies list. Inc. announced its first annual list today, an exciting 12-point measure of management excellence across the middle market.

Inc.’s Best Led Companies list recognizes 250 companies that are both agile and able to make a broad impact in their industries. Collectively, these companies employ 35 million people, about one of four U.S. workers. All 250 have a successful track record with leadership teams that spur solid performance, create value, penetrate markets, engage with customers, and more.

“This inaugural list of companies represents the remarkable midsized companies, both public and private, often founder-led, that are at the vanguard of reinventing American business,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. magazine. “With their leadership, all business will benefit from an exciting, competitive future full of possibilities.”

To be considered for the list, applicants were analyzed via an algorithm that identified the very best companies according to their leadership teams’ superlative accomplishments in four key areas: performance and value creation; market penetration and customer engagement; talent; and leadership team.

It’s an honor to be named on this list, alongside exceptional companies across a wide array of industries. Thank you so much for this recognition.
