Ameresco was recognized as one of 250 companies agile enough to maneuver but also big enough to have a broad impact on the public and private sectors. Each honoree was identified as having a successful track record with leadership teams that spur solid performance, create value, penetrate markets, engage with customers and more.

To be considered for the list, applicants were analyzed via an algorithm that identified the very best companies according to their teams’ superlative accomplishments in four key areas: performance and value creation; market penetration and customer engagement; talent; and leadership team.

“The inaugural list of companies represents the remarkable mid-sized 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 businesses will benefit from an exciting, competitive future full of possibilities.”

“As Ameresco has grown steadily over the last 21 years, it has always been of utmost importance that we maintain a standard of leadership excellence,” said President and CEO of Ameresco, George Sakellaris. “It is an honor to be recognized by Inc. in their first-ever Best-Led Companies list and is a tribute to the leadership teams across the company who have ensured we’ve provided innovative, top tier solutions for our customers.”

Ameresco’s portfolio includes energy efficiency, infrastructure upgrades, asset sustainability and renewable energy solutions. The company has completed projects across sectors, from higher education to public housing, and implemented over $2 billion in Federal energy projects with frequent government agency partners like the Department of Defense, Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security and more.

The November issue of Inc. magazine is available online now at and will be on newsstands beginning November 9, 2021.
