Companies in Wisconsin’s private sector play a key role in powering the state’s economy and communities. For the 17th year, Deloitte is recognizing 75 of the largest and most successful private companies—the Wisconsin 75—for the impact they make.

2019 application period is closed

Join the Wisconsin 75 list and also consider including a nomination for the Distinguished Performer Awards in one of six categories–community, diversity, innovation, succession, sustainability, talent–as added visibility to prospective clients and customers, partners, investors and employees.

Contact us to receive information on applying for the 2020 list.

How do I know if my company is eligible to apply?


Must be headquartered in Wisconsin. 


Must have a majority ownership (50+ percent) by an individual(s), family, employee stock ownership plan (ESOP), or private equity firm. Public companies (i.e., a company whose voting stock is listed on any exchange or actively traded over the counter) are eligible when greater than 50 percent of the value or vote of the shares are owned by individuals, family, ESOP, or private equity.


Must have a minimum of $50 million in annual sales revenue. The top 75 companies will be ranked by sales revenue. Parent companies must submit an aggregate figure that includes subsidiaries; do not submit separate forms for each subsidiary. Annual sales revenue should be the amount reported on the company’s financial statements. The information provided is kept confidential by Deloitte LLP.
