Triangle Business Journal’s Fast 50 Award Results
Fuller Land & Development placed #12 in the Triangle Business Journal’s 2017 “Fast 50” Awards program. This long-running program recognizes the fastest-growing, privately held firms within the Research Triangle region. Fuller, a multi-faceted real estate firm, offers land investment, brokerage, development and custom home building services throughout the region.
TBJ Fast 50 Eligibility Requirements
To be eligible for the TBJ’s Fast 50 Awards, a firm must meet certain criteria:
- Be independently owned, and privately held.
- Have completed three full fiscal years of operation by December 31, 2016, with revenue of at least $7 million in 2016.
- Be based & headquartered in one of the 16 counties in the Triangle region.
Quantifying Business Growth
Pricewaterhose Coopers LLP partners with the TBJ and ranks companies “based upon a formula that takes into account dollar growth, percentage rate of growth and profitability over a three-year period.” Being on the top 50 list – especially in the upper quintile - is quite an honor for a company of just 7 people. Many of the top 50 companies employ hundreds of people. For Fuller President Jim Anderson, the company’s growth is fundamentally based on the personal and professional growth of its team members. He says, “We invest in the individual growth of each of our partners—and their collective growth fuels the company’s growth.” Anderson sees the firm’s biggest 2017 success being that all four of the company’s divisions were profitable at the same time.
"We’ve developed several beautiful communities, brokered some large land deals, harvested our early land investments and built some very nice homes."Jim Anderson
When asked about 2018 goals, Anderson said the firm’s primary goal will remain the same as it’s been since 2009: “To maintain a positive work environment where individuals grow with and through the company. The real estate and construction projects we undertake will change every year, and so will the financial results. But if we can consistently provide a place where every person feels like they got a better life through applied entrepreneurship at Fuller, that’s going to be as fantastic in 2018 as it was in 2009.”
