SOLitude Named One of the Fastest Growing Companies by Roaring 20
November 21st, 2018
For the 6th year, SOLitude Lake Management has been named to Inside Business’ Roaring 20 list, which recognizes the twenty fastest-growing companies in Southeastern Virginia based on revenue, employee growth and the significant contributions they make to the local economy.
All winners experienced annual revenue growth from 2015-2017. In the last year, SOLitude has significantly increased gross revenue and added more than 100 new staff members to its team.
Since the company began, SOLitude has grown a presence in more than 30 states across the country and continues to expand to new regions, including California and Arizona.
In an interview with Inside Business, SOLitude CEO Kevin Tucker recalled the collective need for freshwater management services when he founded the company in 1998.
“There were a lot of stormwater ponds and lakes in the community that were underserviced,” Tucker said. “There was a great need and the options they had were not that good.”
He went on to discuss what it was like serving as the company’s only employee until 2002.
“It was a bootstrap operation, starting with an office in my house and also my garage,” Tucker said. “It was self-funded. I was still doing small real estate development projects.”
