NEWTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The RMR Group Inc. (Nasdaq: RMR) was recently ranked 75th on Fortune Magazine’s 100 Fastest-Growing Companies list for 2019. The ranking, applied to U.S. publicly traded companies, is based on the combination of revenue growth, earnings growth and the three-year annualized total return for the period ended June 28, 2019. RMR is one of only three real estate related companies to rank on this list.

This ranking follows several recent honors from industry and government organizations achieved by RMR and the client companies it manages. Between January and June 2019, four properties managed by The RMR Group LLC achieved BOMA 360 designation and four properties earned LEED certifications. In June 2019, RMR client company Office Properties Income Trust (Nasdaq: OPI) was named a 2019 Green Lease Leader.

“This recognition from Fortune Magazine is the result of RMR’s careful stewardship of our client companies and commitment to growing our business,” said Adam Portnoy, President and Chief Executive Officer of RMR. “We are unique as an alternative asset manager because we are a vertically integrated real estate organization. We believe that a steady focus on property level operations can translate into strong long-term financial performance.
