Atlanta, GA, May 22, 2017—The Atlanta Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth® (ACG), a global professional organization with the mission of Driving Middle-Market Growth®, announced the 2017 Georgia Fast 40, recognizing the top 40 fastest-growing middle-market companies in Georgia.
REPAY was recognized for its excellence in growth for the 2017 Awards.
“We are very honored and excited to be a part of the Georgia Fast 40,” says John Morris, CEO and co-founder of REPAY. “I’d like to thank our wonderful employees - everyone has worked extremely hard to maintain steady growth while ensuring we never lose sight of our values. Our focus on fanatical customer service and our high-performance, collaborative team have greatly contributed to this accomplishment.”
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 in-person interviews with all qualified applicants. All companies on the list are for profit, headquartered in Georgia and reported 2016 annual revenues ranging from $15 to $500 million.
“These 40 companies represent 9,574 new jobs and $2.03 billion in revenue growth over the last two years alone,” said Justin Palmer, chairman of the 2017 Georgia Fast 40 Awards and Vice President at Genesis Capital, LLC. “We are proud to honor these great companies in our communities.”
ACG Atlanta will present the awards at the Georgia Fast 40 Awards Dinner and Gala at Flourish Atlanta on June 22, 2017, at which more than 600 leaders in the Georgia business community will be in attendance.
