Inaugural roundup of companies includes top 250 that proved management excellence across the middle market

FRIENDSWOOD, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Castle Biosciences (Nasdaq: CSTL), a company applying innovative diagnostics to transform disease management and improve patient outcomes, today announced that it has been named in Inc.’s first-annual Best-Led Companies list, a select, data-driven list of the very strongest U.S. firms with revenue of $50 million to $2 billion.

“This inaugural list of companies represents the remarkable midsized companies, both public and private, often founder-led, that are at the vanguard of reinventing American business,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. magazine. “With their leadership, all business will benefit from an exciting, competitive future full of possibilities.”

“At Castle, our commitment to improving patients’ lives through innovative diagnostics is what drives us forward; it is a passion that has ignited a strong purpose in our business since our founding,” said Derek Maetzold, president and chief executive officer of Castle Biosciences. “Being ranked in Inc.’s inaugural Best-Led Companies list is an honor and affirms that we have built our business on a solid foundation that we believe will drive sustainable growth for years to come.”

The list recognizes 250 companies that are agile enough to maneuver but also big enough to have a broad impact. These companies employ 35 million people, about one of four U.S. workers. All 250 have a successful track record with leadership teams that spur solid performance, create value, penetrate markets, engage with customers and more.

Applicants were analyzed via an algorithm that identified the strongest companies based on accomplishments in four key areas: performance and value creation; market penetration and customer engagement; talent; and leadership team.

To compile the list, Inc. evaluated private and public U.S.-based companies with a 2020 revenue of $50 million to $2 billion or a valuation of $50 million to $10 billion using a proprietary 14-point measure of management excellence generated with input from partners at Pitchbook and Shango Labs.
