I am truly delighted to announce that Millennium has been recognized as one of Baltimore SmartCEO’s 2015 Future 50 winners. This award program recognizes the region’s 50 fastest growing mid-sized companies. The Future 50 represent the future of the economy in the Baltimore region and embody the entrepreneurial spirit that is critical for leadership and success. Collectively, the Future 50 winners generate $2.1 billion in annual revenue and employ 11,945 individuals in the greater Baltimore area.
In order to be considered for this award, we completed an in-depth application that was submitted in September. The winners were then chosen based on a three-year average of employee and revenue growth. I am so happy that we can count Millennium among this very impressive group of companies. The Future 50 winners are leading-edge, determined, and innovative. According to Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, President of SmartCEO Events:
Running a fast growing company presents unique opportunities and challenges — and this year’s Future 50 list, whether they are 10-year veterans or first-time winners, share a unique bond among them. They’ve battled the harsh economy and won. They’ve heard the naysayers and have chosen not to listen. They’ve seen the odds and made themselves the exception. Entrepreneurs built this country and formed the foundation of the communities in which we all live and work. And through continued hard work, dogged determination and an unwavering will to succeed, they are constructing the bright future that is in store for Baltimore right before our eyes.
Again, I am thrilled that Millennium has been selected as one of the 2015 winners and am very much looking forward to the Future 50 Awards gala on January 22, 2015. You can view a complete list of the winners here.
