Inc. magazine today named Poulton Associates, LLC. to its 2018 Inc. 5000 list, an annual exclusive list that ranks the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. Based in Salt Lake City, the managing general agent and insurance brokerage earned a sought-after spot on the list for the third year in a row, ranking number 3,390. Founded in 1991, Poulton Associates earned revenue of $11.4 million in 2017, demonstrating impressive three-year growth of 114 percent.

The 37th annual Inc. list provides a snapshot into some of America's most successful independent and privately held small businesses. Poulton Associates administers the country's largest private flood insurance program – the Natural Catastrophe Insurance Program (NCIP).

"Poulton Associates is proud to once again be named to Inc.'s prestigious list of America's 5,000 fastest growing companies," said Craig Poulton, chief executive officer of Poulton Associates. "Our breadth of products and services including private flood, earthquake and landslide insurance, and our unique and convenient insurance delivery platform is creating efficiencies for insurance producers across the country. And, the word is out – private flood insurance, like that offered by NCIP, provides a more comprehensive and cost-effective alternative to the government's troubled National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Producers and consumers are catching on and they are seeking out our private flood insurance product."

Poulton is a nationally recognized expert on the subject of flood reform and has worked diligently with the media, regulators and lawmakers to remove barriers threatening the growth of the private flood insurance market. Unfortunately, with the federal government administering most of the flood insurance policies in the U.S., it has been unclear to consumers, and even many mortgage and insurance professionals, that private alternatives, unrelated to the NFIP, are available.
