International Citizens Group Overcomes COVID Headwinds to Continue Stellar Growth
BOSTON, MA – August 17, 2021 – Global services firm International Citizens Group, Inc. (ICG, InternationalCitizens.com) again made the Inc. 5000 list, ranking the fastest-growing private companies in the US. The company, which ranked 1509, drove growth primarily from its international insurance business, which grew 314% despite COVID-related travel industry headwinds.
“The coronavirus crisis made it clear to internationally mobile citizens that international health insurance and travel insurance are vital in a volatile world,” ICG CEO Joe Cronin said. “Our expert staff simplified the complex and anxiety-inducing process of obtaining international insurance in a pandemic for our customers. They also helped our renewing customers get their best plan throughout constantly changing global conditions. Their hard work and support of expatriates and globally mobile citizens continued our impressive growth in an unprecedented environment that created significant challenges.”
ICG joins an elite group that includes Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, and Patagonia.
