BNC Bancorp named to Fortune Magazine List of 100 Fastest Growing Companies

September 19, 2016

BNC Bancorp, BNC Bank's holding company, has been named to Fortune’s Top 100 List of Fastest Growing Companies. Ranked at 71st, this marks BNC Bancorp’s first appearance on the list.

“We are honored and excited to be on such a high profile list,” said Richard Callicutt II, President and CEO of BNC Bancorp. “We couldn’t have accomplished the growth and financial performance necessary to receive this honor if not for the outstanding leadership of our Board, the dedication of our exceptional staff, and the dynamic markets in which we operate across the Carolinas and Southern Virginia.”

This is the 30th year that Fortune Magazine has created their list of the 100 Fastest Growing Companies. The ranking is determined based on revenue growth, EPS growth and the three year annualized total return for shareholders. 

“This honor is especially rewarding because the three criteria of revenue growth, EPS growth and total return for our shareholders are three of the key pillars of our strategic vision and corporate culture,” said Callicutt.

With the recent purchase of Southcoast Financial, BNC Bank has amassed total assets of about $6.5 billion.
