How is First Orion doing? Well … we were just named to the influential Inc. 5000 Regionals Southeast list – ranking No. 144. We were the only company in Arkansas to make the cut.
It’s an honor to receive this award and we’re happy to represent our state on this respected list!
Inc. 5000 Regional Award
Inc. 5000 is the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies based in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
