Multifamily management firm ranks No. 16 in first appearance on Charlotte Business Journal’s annual “Fast 50” list

RKW Residential’s rapid growth over a short period of time is not just generating attention within the multifamily industry. The broader business community is taking notice, as evidenced by the Charlotte Business Journal honoring RKW as one of the region’s fastest-growing private companies in its annual “Fast 50” rankings.

In its first appearance on the list, RKW ranked No. 16. Each year, the publication recognizes the 50 private companies that have documented the highest revenue growth over the past three years. The rankings are based on a formula that reflects dollar and percentage growth during that timeframe.

A virtual ceremony was held on Dec. 3 to unveil the rankings of RKW and the other Fast 50 companies.

“Recognitions like Fast 50 can be attributed to our incredible people at all levels of the company,” RKW President Marcie Williams said. “The last three years have certainly been pivotal for RKW, but what gets me really excited is the feeling that we are still just getting started in carrying out our long-term expansion plans.”

Founded just six years ago, RKW is one of the multifamily industry’s most compelling entrepreneurial success stories in recent memory. It was recently recognized by Multi-Housing News as the nation’s second-fastest growing multifamily management company in the publication’s 2020 rankings.

For the third consecutive year, the Charlotte Business Journal recognized RKW in its annual list of the largest property management companies in the area. In the 2020 list, RKW moved up to No. 6 and notably was the top for multifamily specifically.

The company appeared on the Multi-Housing News 2020 “Top Property Managers” list for the second consecutive year. RKW also received two of the publication’s 2019 Excellence Awards, which recognize the multifamily industry’s top projects, companies, transactions and individuals.
