Omaha Fares Well in Latest Fortune 500 & 1000 Lists

June 6, 2024

The 2024 Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 lists have been released, and Omaha continues to serve as the home of several of the nation’s biggest countries.

The iconic listing of America’s biggest companies is now in its 70th year. The 500 companies are ranked by annual revenue and together represent two-thirds of the U.S. Gross Domestic Product. Together, the companies amassed $18.8 trillion in revenue, $1.7 trillion in profits and $43 trillion in market value. The 500 companies employ 31 million people in total.

Like last year, Omaha hosts the headquarters of four companies in the Fortune 500 and an additional four in the Fortune 1000. That means Omaha has more headquarters than many much larger cities including Kansas City, Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Indianapolis, Salt Lake City, Sacramento, Las Vegas, Portland, Nashville and others.

Here’s the list of Omaha’s Fortune 500 and 1000 companies with rankings and revenue totals:

#5 Berkshire Hathaway – $364 billion +

#170 Union Pacific – $24 billion +

#239 Peter Kiewit Sons’ – $17 billion +

#306 Mutual of Omaha – $13 billion +

#726 Valmont Industries – $4 billion +

#845 Green Plains – $3 billion +

#846 Werner Enterprises – $3 billion +

#937 First National of Nebraska – $2.7 billion +

No other Nebraska cities host any Fortune 500 or 1000 company headquarters. The state of Iowa has three in the Fortune 1000:

#274 Casey’s based in Ankeny
#310 Principal Financial based in Des Moines
#922 American National Group based in West Des Moines

As far as Nebraska’s other border states are concerned, neither South Dakota nor Wyoming have a single Fortune 1000 company headquarters. Kansas has four. Missouri hosts 20 while Colorado has 23.
