Nashville Based Advance Financial Named To NBJ’s Fast 50

Award-winning Advance Financial, a Nashville based financial services company, was included on the NBJ’s list of the fastest growing companies in Tennessee. The company is also ranked on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing companies in the country for the sixth time in a row.

When selecting the Fast 50, the Nashville Business Journal examines the revenue growth of the top 100 privately held companies. The revenue and growth of each of these companies from the year 2016 has been considered in shortlisting the top 50. During this period, Advance Financial has grown by more than 180 percent.

Tina Hodges, the CEO and CXO of Advance Financial, said, “We are all immensely proud of the Advance Financial leadership team and all the employees. It’s their innovative thinking, smart work and tireless commitment to our customers that fuels our expansion, not only into new markets but into other service lines. I am confident that we will be able to grow at the same rate over the coming years and help more people become financially independent.”

This year, Advance Financial was ranked 19th. For the past 20 years, the company has served communities through its 80 stores. In 2016, AF committed to opening 25 more stores in the upcoming months and is well on its way in reaching this goal. The company has also expanded its reach by offering FLEX Loans, an open line-of-credit loan that is an alternative to traditional payday loans and installment loans.
