Lazer: 40 fastest-growing in Georgia
Honorees are recognized at the Celebration on June 28 at the Atlanta History Center
May 18, 2022: ATLANTA – The Atlanta National Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth® (ACG) today announced the 2022 Georgia Fast 40, recognizing Georgia’s top 40 fastest-growing middlemarket companies.
“Every year, the Georgia Fast 40 displays the strength and significance of the middle-market sector in Georgia,” said Melanie Brandt, ACG’s Atlanta and South Region President & CEO. “The sheer variety of the industries represented, which includes Healthcare, Financial Technology (FinTech), Manufacturing, Construction, and Fantasy Sports, among many others, also demonstrates the breadth of investments and executive talent in the South.”
Applicants were required to submit three years of verifiable revenue and employment growth records, which were validated by the national accounting firm and founding Diamond sponsor,
Cherry Bekaert LLP. An ACG Committee of volunteers conducted in-person interviews with all qualified applicants. The companies on the list are for-profit, headquartered in Georgia, and reported year-end revenues ranging from $15 to $500 million, making up the lower and upper middle-market categories.
ACG Atlanta will announce additional honorees for the higher middle-market category with revenues up to $1 billion in the coming weeks.
“These 40 companies represent almost 11,000 new jobs and over $3.1 billion in revenue growth over the last three years,” said Michelle Galvani, chairperson of the Georgia Fast 40 Awards and Executive Managing Director with Wildmor Advisors.
“In speaking with many of the CEOs, 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.”
