The event, which drew nearly 500 people, announced and honored all 100 companies on the list and revealed each company's ranking. The 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies are listed, with select companies profiled, in a special publication of the Business Journal on Oct. 12.
The Fastest-Growing Private Companies program was launched 17 years ago by the Puget Sound Business Journal to identify and recognize companies speeding to the top of their industries. To be eligible, companies must: be privately held and headquartered in Washington; have at least $500,000 in net revenue in 2009; show an overall growth from 2009 to 2011 calendar years; and agree to submit their net operating revenues with Puget Sound Business Journal.
"The companies that make this list are, by definition, among the most dynamic in our region," said Business Journal Publisher Gordon Prouty. "Especially this year, making membership on this elite list is all the more impressive, and these companies are showing all of us what qualities it takes to grow in challenging times."
Lee Travis, Obot Electric, Owner, expressed his pride in the national recognition, "Our team has worked extremely hard and we're honored and appreciative to be recognized for the early efforts that helped us to reach this point. We look with confidence to the future."
