This is the second time Resource Financial Services has made the list, having been named No. 227 in 2012. Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000, only a fraction have made the list more than once. The company’s revenue jumped 900% percent from 2015 to 2018, the three years tracked by the Inc. magazine editorial team.

“We are continually seeking the best customer experience for our clients, while maintaining a best-of-class culture for our associates and business partners,” said A. Wade Douroux, president and CEO of Resource Financial Services.

Resource Financial, along with the other top 500 companies, will be profiled in Inc.’s September issue. It will be available at newsstands Aug. 20.

Resource Financial Services, established in 2008, has an Orangeburg connection via partners in the firm, Jim Bowie and his wife Jennifer. The two are executive vice presidents. 

Bowie lived in Orangeburg from 1976 until he graduated from Orangeburg Prep in 1990. He is a 1994 University of South Carolina graduate with a degree in business administration. He joined Douroux in June 1998, eventually becoming the partner in today's Resource Financial.

Bowie's father, Flynn Bowie Sr., was a market leader in the banking industry with what is now Bank of America (Southern Bank and Trust, NationsBank) from 1976-1989. His mother was a well-known interior designer with her own business, Claire Bowie and Company, until her untimely death at the age of 44 in a car accident on I-26 in 1988 that claimed four lives.
