Black Enterprise out with 2013 ‘Top 100’

BlackEnterprise-400The top 100 African-American industrial/service companies – the core of Black Enterprise's 2013 report – collectively grossed more than $19.1 billion in 2012, a 2 percent increase over the previous year.

The BE 100s industrial/service companies employed 53,866 people in 2012, a 3 percent reduction from 2011.

The 60 largest black-owned auto dealers generated an additional $7.2 billion in revenues and employed 8,415 people in 2012. Despite the rebound of the domestic auto industry, the number of black-owned auto dealerships has yet to return to the levels prior to the beginning of the 2008 recession, when Black Enterprise ranked the top 100 largest dealerships.

"The comeback of the American auto industry is a healthy and welcome development for our nation's economy," said BE Chairman and Publisher Earl Graves Sr. "However, until the way is made clear for more African Americans to own dealerships, at least in proportion to their representation before the recession, the recovery of the auto industry is far from complete."

This is the 41st year that the multimedia giant Black Enterprise has listed America's largest black companies. The 2013 BE 100s Report: Accelerate Your Business consists of rankings of America's 100 largest black-owned industrial/service companies, 60 automobile dealers, as well as listings of the top advertising agencies, banks, asset managers, investment banks and private equity firms.

When Black Enterprise first compiled its "Top 100" in 1973, combined sales for the 100 component companies totaled $473 million. The 2013 is published in Black Magazine (currently on newsstands) as well as online at BlackEnterprise.com at http://www.blackenterprise.com/lists/be-100s-2013/.
In addition to the BE 100s listings, the magazine also features profiles of Magic Johnson Enterprises CEO Earvin "Magic" Johnson, RLJ Companies Chairman and 2013 A.G. Gaston Lifetime Achievement Award Honoree Robert L. Johnson and the chief executives of the 2013 Black Enterprise Companies of the Year:

Industrial/Service Company of the Year: Hightowers Petroleum, Middletown, Ohio; CEO, Stephen L. Hightower. Business: Petroleum Products Distribution;

Auto Dealer of the Year: March Hodge Automotive Group, Tampa, Fla.; CEOs, Anthony March, Ernest Hodge. Business: Retail sales for automakers including Mazda, Toyota, Honda, Jaguar, Volvo, Volkswagen, Nissan, Infinity, Land Rover;

Financial Services Company of the Year: Vista Equity Partners, San Francisco, CA; CEO, Robert F. Smith. Business: Private Equity (focus on technology);

Advertising Agency of the Year: Walton Isaacson, Los Angeles; CEOs, Aaron Walton/Cory;

"Our report on the largest African American-owned businesses in the U.S. highlights the achievements of intrepid entrepreneurs at the helms of top-flight organizations, while providing the most significant barometer of the progress of African Americans as business leaders and producers, not just consumers and laborers, in the global economy," said BE Senior VP/Editor-in-Chief Derek T. Dingle.

"Year after year, while reporting on the moves of the best of the best, we are inspired by the boundless ingenuity and determination of the CEOs of the BE 100s, worthy of emulation by all entrepreneurs, regardless of race."

A multimedia company, BE also produces television programming, business and lifestyle events, Web content, and digital media.

The price of both new and used cars seems to escalate each
year and consumers need to know how to save money on car payments before they sign on the dotted line.
Once in a while, you give a lot of concern to
your car. Understanding all these auto service
manuals will give you a better edge so you can drive your car having the assurance that
it is in peak condition.

Credit unions aree one of the few avenues available for refinancing an existing car loan. Read it carefully
to get the most out of your money. Rental cars are not known for their gentle treatment, but a llot of potential buyers look at
the savings andd wonder if these stories are overblown.
