SC Fastest Growing Companies of 2013

December 02, 2013

Wireless Communications

Wireless Communications is owned by CEO Krish Patel. It was number one on last year's list of the SC Fastest Growing Companies and appears on the list again this year. As a Verizon Wireless retailer, the company must be as aggressive as the wireless industry in which it operates. With 41 retail stores in four Southeastern states, Wireless Communications has grown 1,378 percent in the last three years and hired 44 new employees. Last year's revenue came in at $43.1 million, making it the fourth fastest growing retailer in the state. The company also appeared on the Inc. 500 list in 2012 and 2013. Not content to focus only on increasing revenue, Patel and his staff regularly contribute to philanthropic causes, giving time and money to over a dozen different organizations since the retailer's inception in 2008.

Patel’s advice to other business people: “My advice for anyone looking to grow their business in South Carolina is simple. Two parts: One, get involved in the community and reach out for help. And two, make sure you retain top talent and create rock stars in your organization and take care of your people.”
