Growing and Grateful

By: Emma Woodthorpe

Last week we celebrated another milestone at Mercury when Boston Business Journal named us one of the “Fastest-Growing Public Companies in Massachusetts.” Earlier this year, we ranked No. 27 on Fortune Magazine’s “100 Fasted Growing Companies in 2018” list. It’s worth noting that we’re the only aerospace and defense company to receive either of these accolades. And just this week, we made the “Top 100” list compiled by Defense News, which identifies the world’s biggest defense companies.

As I reflect on how far we’ve come in just a few short years ago, it’s both exhilarating and humbling. We often chide ourselves for being results driven, but our ability to achieve four straight years of double digit revenue growth, which has taken us from a $350 million company, when I joined three years ago, to almost double that today, is nothing short of amazing.

As I reflect on Mercury’s many accomplishments, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention a few of the unique factors that have contributed to our remarkable growth and success:

  • We’re fortunate to be in a market that is growing
  • Our culture and values are foundational to who we are and why we win in the market
  • We have an incredible team that drives our vision and works to achieve ambitious goals
  • Our employees embody the scrappy mentality of a start-up despite our continued growth

I am proud of the team we have created and all that we continue to achieve. I am also incredibly thankful for the dedication and hard work of our team members. Mercury has a bright future thanks to all of them!

We believe our hyper-growth is proof positive that there has never been a more exciting time to be a part of Mercury. And in fact, we just hired our 1,665th employee this week! Interested in joining our team? Check out our Career Site to learn more about the opportunities that exist at Mercury.
