Mike Bidwell, president and CEO of Neighborly, said it is an honor for Neighborly to be included again on the annual Inc. 5000 list along with other organizations.
“Neighborly — like so many other companies — has overcome a variety of challenges within the last year, all while continuing to provide excellent customer experiences to homeowners in need of home services,” Bidwell said. “As we continue pursuing our vision to ‘Own The Home’ through Neighborly’s family of home service brands, recognition like this signifies that we’re well on our way to making that vision a reality.”
