ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, May 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Atlanta National Chapter of the Association for Corporate GrowthÂ® (ACG), a global professional organization with the mission of Driving Middle Market GrowthÂ®, today announced the 2021 Georgia Fast 40, recognizing the top 40 fastest-growing middle-market companies in Georgia. High Road Craft Ice Cream is honored to be on the list for a second consecutive year.
â€œThe companies being honored this year demonstrate the strength and significance of the middle market sector in Georgia,â€� said Melanie Brandt CEO of the Association for Corporate Growthâ€™s South Region and ACG Atlanta President and CEO.
Applicants were required to submit three years of verifiable revenue and employment growth records, which were validated by national accounting firm and founding Diamond sponsor, Cherry Bekaert LLP. An ACG Selection Committee evaluated each application and conducted interviews with all qualified applicants. Companies on the list are for profit and headquartered in Georgia and span across a variety of industries including logistics, healthcare, manufacturing, and financial services, among others.
CEO and Founder, Keith Schroeder says, â€œIt is a true honor to see High Road back on the ACG Atlanta Fast 40 list! Congratulations goes out to our entire team — but especially our front-line teammates at both plants, Marietta, GA and Sheboygan, WI — who find ways — every day — to care for one another above all.â€�
â€œThese companies represent more than 6,600 new jobs and nearly 2.4 billion dollars in revenue growth over the last three years,â€� said Michelle Galvani, chairperson of the Georgia Fast 40 Awards and Executive Managing Director with Wildmor Advisors. â€œIn speaking with many of the CEOâ€™s, the supportive business environment and accessibility of capital are contributors to growth. By far the biggest challenge is the tightness of the labor market. We are proud to honor these companies and look forward to learning more insights online and at the celebration in June.â€�
ACG Atlanta will present the awards at the Georgia Fast 40 celebration outdoors at the Atlanta History Center in Buckhead on June 24, 2021. Single tickets for ACG Members can be purchased online at http://www.acg.org/atlanta.
