KENNESAW, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Riskonnect ranked number 15 on the Atlanta Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth® (ACG) 2017 Georgia Fast 40 list. This is the second consecutive year Riskonnect, the leading global provider of Integrated Risk Management Solutions™, ranked in the top half of the list which recognizes the top 40 fastest-growing middle-market companies in Georgia.
“Riskonnect is growing our company by driving innovation and helping companies recognize and address the insured and uninsured risks that can impact their brands,” said Jim Foster, president and CEO of Riskonnect. “This ACG ranking means we are on the right track to expanding our presence in Georgia and beyond.”
To be considered, applicants were required to submit three years of verifiable revenue and employment growth records. National accounting firm and founding Diamond sponsor, Cherry Bekaert LLP, validated the results. An ACG selection committee evaluated each application and conducted in-person interviews with qualified applicants. All 40 ranked companies 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 presented the awards at the Georgia Fast 40 Awards Dinner and Gala at Flourish Atlanta last month.
