Jacksonville, Fla. – February 8, 2018 – Jimerson & Cobb was recognized by the University of Florida’s 2018 Gator 100 on Feb. 2, at UF’s J. Wayne Reitz Union Grand Ballroom. This is the firm’s third time winning the award.
Supported by the UF Alumni Association, in partnership with the UF Entrepreneurship & Innovation Center, the Gator100 celebrates the fastest growing UF alumni-led businesses around the world. To generate the ranking, Ernst & Young calculated each company’s compounded annual growth rate (CAGR)
over the past three years.
Jimerson & Cobb was ranked 65 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 35.10%. “It’s an honor and privilege to receive this award, especially when we look around and see that fellow honorees are some of the country’s most successful businesses,” says Jimerson. “The recognition honors
the hard work of all our employees. Their core character traits of personal accountability and positive attitude will ensure that we continue to propel our business for even greater success ahead. We know that our future always depends on what we do in the present. Personal and professional growth isn’t for everyone. Some people just want to stay the same forever. Not us. We subscribe to the principle that if it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you. Our firm pushes itself day-in and day-out to be better. To improve. To grow. We are thankful for every opportunity and recognition we are presented with along the way.”
Jimerson & Cobb has received multiple local and state wide business awards—named one of the fastestgrowing law firms in America by the Law Firm 500 for the second consecutive year, and has been acknowledged five times as one of the 50 fastest-growing companies in Northeast Florida by the
Jacksonville Business Journal.
“The Gator100 honors UF alumni from across the university who are founding and growing amazing companies around the country,” said Kent Fuchs, president of the University of Florida. “It’s an incredible affirmation of the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of the Gator Nation.”
To qualify for the Gator100, companies must have been in business for at least five years as of October 1, 2017, and have had variable annual revenues of $250,000 or more in 2014. Additionally, UF alumni had to meet at least one of the following criteria:
