WHAT IS THE MID-MARKET?

The mid-market is defined as companies that generate between US$100 million and US$3 billion per year in revenue. There are nearly 20,000 US-based mid-market companies. Collectively mid-market companies:

  1. Account for the middle third of revenue generated by all US companies
  2. Employ over 30 million people
  3. Generate approximately US$10 trillion of the US$30 trillion of U.S. private sector annual gross receipts in the United States

While there are good sources of information about CEOs of large companies and small businesses, there is relatively little information about mid-size companies and their CEOs. As a consequence their issues and needs are underrepresented in policy and economic discussions.

WHAT IS CEO CONNECTION?

Founded in 2005, CEO Connection is the ONLY membership organization in the world reserved exclusively for CEOs of mid-market companies – companies with between $100 million and $3 billion in annual revenue. Our mission is to help mid-market CEOs succeed. We accomplish this by enabling CEOs to build mutually beneficial relationships with peers and functional experts; connecting CEOs to people, information and resources to which they would otherwise not have access; and promoting the interests, welfare, and points of view of the membership and the mid-market.

HOW IS THE INFORMATION COMPILED?

CEO Connection drew from numerous sources to provide the data for the 2015 Mid-Market 500 and 1000 firms. The research team reviewed the financial data for US-based companies with revenue from $100 million to $3 billion across all industries. The ranking for this list was based on 2014 revenue. The list also includes US business units of foreign-based companies. We used several public resources to validate data and capture additional firmagraphic data about the companies as well as background information about each CEO. The public resources included Yahoo Finance, company filings, industry websites, and company websites. In addition, we validated the captured data via surveys with many of the ranked companies.

WHAT INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE ON THE LISTS?

The lists that are publicly accessible include rank, business name, city, and state of business, CEO’s name, industry, 2014 revenue, and website URL. Additional fields that are available include complete business mailing address, company phone number, social media presence (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn), company description, company email address, 2014 Revenue, 2014 EBIT, Year company started, CEO Tenure (start date of current CEO), CEO alma mater, Primary NAICS code, Primary 4-digit SIC code, and whether the current CEO is a company founder.

HOW OFTEN IS THE DATA UPDATED?

The formal rankings will be updated annually. However, we continually collect information about Mid-Market companies throughout the year. Any updates will be reflected quarterly in the online version of the lists. While we strive to make the Mid-Market Rankings list comprehensive, we recognize that it may not be complete. To report any company updates or think that your company should have been included, please send an email to rankings@ceoconnection.com.

ARE THERE PLANS TO PUBLISH ADDITIONAL LISTS?

We are exploring publishing additional lists to showcase different sectors within the Mid-Market. If you have suggestions for specific lists, please email rankings@ceoconnection.com.
