Baltimore, MD – December 6, 2011 – Baltimore SmartCEO magazine is pleased to announce the winners for the 2012 Baltimore SmartCEO/ Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Future 50 awards, which recognizes the area’s 50 fastest-growing companies based on employee and revenue growth over the past three years. The impressive group leads companies that boast $5 billion in collective revenues and manage more than 26,000 employees in the Greater Baltimore area.
In addition to the group of Future 50 winners, SmartCEO recognizes Emerging Growth and Blue Chip winners. Emerging Growth companies generate $1 to $5 million in revenue, but have experienced significant revenue and employee growth over the last three years. Blue Chip companies generate more than $250 million in revenue, have demonstrated steady growth and have a reputation for providing high-quality management, products and services.
“Comprehensive growth is applause-worthy in healthy economic times. This year’s group of winners has ignored the recession and created innovative new avenues for growth. The business community is healthier and stronger due to their efforts,” said SmartCEO magazine President and Co-founder Craig Burris.
SmartCEO magazine will profile local award winners in the January 2012 issue of the publication in Baltimore, Philadelphia and Washington, reaching 60,000 print and digital subscribers. Thursday, January 19, SmartCEO will announce the winners on-stage in front of more than 650 leaders of the local business community at a black-tie optional dinner reception hosted at Baltimore Marriott Waterfront in Baltimore, MD.
