AVIAN LLC has been ranked on Inc. magazine’s list of America’s fastest-growing, privately-owned companies for the eighth consecutive year. Inc’s prestigious list, highlights a three-year growth rate of 79 percent which is equivalent to the coverage that the Washington D.C. area saw during the 2017 eclipse, ranking AVIAN at 3764 for 2017.

“What we can achieve as a company absolutely amazes me,” said Kevin Switick, president and an owner of AVIAN. “We are proud of what we do and the way we provide creative solutions to our customers; that pride and dedication shows in all aspects of AVIAN’s growth.”

AVIAN is a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business devoted to the talent of its employees. AVIAN’s business model focuses on taking care of employees first, resulting in employees taking care of customers, with satisfied customers returning to continue seeking AVIAN’s business solutions.

In 2010, AVIAN debuted on the Inc. 500 list at No. 230, five years after Jeff Sherman founded what was then called AVIAN Engineering. The company was ranked 267 in 2011, No. 660 in 2012, No. 1675 in 2013, No. 2630 in 2014, No. 2417 in 2015 and No. 3599 in 2016.

“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”

The entrepreneurial spirit at AVIAN continues as it strives to redefine what it means to be resourceful, responsive and reachable to customers in the defense industry as well as the commercial market. AVIAN has grown to more than 250 employees working around the country.
