AM Specialty Insurance Group Ranks on the 2023 Inc 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies

DALLAS TX, August 15, 2023 – Inc. revealed today that AM Holding Company, also known as AM Specialty Insurance Group, has ranked on the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

"Earning a position on the Inc. 5000 for the third time is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team. We've always been committed to innovation and excellence, and this recognition reaffirms our approach and the trust our partners place in us," stated Shevawn Barder, CEO of AM Holding Company.

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.

For complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, location, and other criteria, go to The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, available on newsstands beginning Tuesday, August 23.

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”

AM Specialty Insurance Group’s mission is to consistently add value to partners, provide meaningful capacity, customized coverage, and superior service. The company utilizes vast experience and long-standing relationships in the (re)insurance industry to fortify a predictable and sustainable business model based on underwriting discipline, sound risk selection, and conservative pricing/terms.
