CHICAGO — Exelon Corporation, the country’s largest utility company by customer count, has moved up the Fortune 100 list to number 89, according to the recently released annual ranking. In 2016, Exelon experienced a 6.5 percent increase in revenue over the prior year along with strong growth across its business. Exelon is the only electric holding company in the Fortune 100.
“While revenue is just one metric to measure a company’s success, this ranking is a significant reflection of Exelon’s work to deliver on our commitments to customers, shareholders and communities and we’re proud to be recognized as an industry leader,” said Dan Eggers, Exelon’s senior vice president, Investor Relations. “Exelon will continue to transition to a clean energy future by investing $25 billion in critical infrastructure and advocating for policies that support clean energy, including nuclear, solar, wind, hydro, battery storage and other technologies.”
Exelon entered the Fortune 100 for the first time in 2016, making the list at number 95.
President and CEO Chris Crane and several employees from across the business marked the milestone by ringing the Opening Bell® at the New York Stock Exchange in October. In February, Exelon was also listed among Fortune’s 2017 World's Most Admired Companies for the 11th consecutive year, noted for its quality of products and services, social responsibility and people management. Exelon also ranks on Fortune’s Global 500.
Exelon continues to invest in programs that nurture a culture of innovation and attract and retain the best talent. In 2016, the company rolled out an industry-leading family leave policy and signed the Equal Pay Pledge, an initiative to encourage major companies to take action to close the national gender pay gap. This week, Exelon also pledged to share best practices for creating a diverse and inclusive workplace by joining the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ initiative.
