Red Rock Secured is proud to be featured in Inc. 5000’s company spotlight as one of the top-growing private businesses in the United States.
Earlier this year, Red Rock Secured ranked in the top 4% of the Inc. 5000’s fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. list. The company ranked #211, which secured our spot on the Inc. 500 list as well.
“I am so proud of everyone here at Red Rock that helped us reach the top 4% of Inc. 5000’s 2022 list,” Red Rock Secured CEO Sean Kelly said at the time. “Coming in at 211 is an honor. I am so proud of my team for their dedication and hard work to help make this possible.”
Red Rock focuses on helping clients preserve and grow their wealth by investing in precious metals like gold and silver, which, unlike stocks, are tangible, timeless, and well-known safe havens.
Kelly, who founded the company after watching hard-working Americans suffer and lose their savings during the Great Recession, said much of his company’s success is due to his employees.
He told Inc. that he prioritizes hiring teammates with “smarts, humility, and drive.” He credits his team for his company’s outstanding Better Business Bureau (BBB) and Trust Pilot ratings. However, he is most proud of the raving Glassdoor reviews from current and former employees.
“It shows the strategy is working. When the company is full of happy people, you have happy clients.” Adding that his goal is to foster a sense of collaboration. “If one team wins, we all win in the long run, so why not work together instead of constantly competing with each other,” he said.
Focusing on happy teammates helped the company grow from $500,000 in revenue in 2017 to $46 million in 2021.
Kelly said another key to Red Rock’s growth is the educational opportunities provided to its employees.
“We have to provide value before we ask for the opportunity to compete for the business,” Kelly said.
To help employees stay current, the company annually publishes new guides and books about current economic and geopolitical issues, sends weekly informative newsletters, and posts educational videos on YouTube.
While some of Red Rock’s competitors have been at this longer, Kelly said the difference is that Red Rock Secured has happy teammates. He argued that this lets his employees focus on being trusted partners instead of having a “transactional mentality.”
It’s evident that employees feel valued and able to grow because they helped get Red Rock Secured certified as a Great Place to Work in October 2022.
“I’ve never felt more valued as a person first and an employee second,” said Red Rock Secured’s VP of Sales, Brett Bultje. “There’s a true care and want for each person to meet their full potential [at Red Rock]. Company culture is a top priority, and quite obviously, that combined with great training and truly helping our clients…the results are speaking for themselves.”
“After working for some of the biggest companies in the gold industry, it has been refreshing and eye-opening to see that Red Rock keeps it simple, with a singular focus on the client to achieve their goals of a worry-free retirement,” added Senior Account Executive Kerrick Morris. “I was surprised and impressed that Sean has been able to build this into the DNA of the company and hire genuine people that share his vision.”
