In addition to being named No. 22 overall, Luke was identified by Inc. as the No. 2 job creator in Florida and the No. 2 job creator in government services. This is the inaugural year for the Inc.’s Hire Power Awards, which acknowledges private companies who have increased their workforces in America over the past three years. Winning companies, including Luke, will be celebrated in Inc. Magazine’s December issue and on Inc.com.
In 2010, Luke was recognized by Inc Magazine as the No. 3 fastest growing private company in the U.S and No. 1 in the Government Services industry. Since then, Luke continues to remain in the top 40 of government services and top 50 of Florida.
“This award is a welcomed surprise. Needless to say, there are major challenges ahead for businesses, but I firmly believe the entrepreneurial and competitive spirit in the U.S. can and will take on these challenges and create opportunities out of adversity. It all begins with dedicated employees and Luke employees are the primary reason for our success,” Luke’s President and CEO, Jim Barfield, said.
