“We’re excited to place on the ACG Fast 40 for the third consecutive year and greatly appreciate everything ACG does to drive middle-market growth here in Atlanta,” said ADAPTURE President Robert Pastor, who accepted the award on stage Thursday evening. “We sincerely thank our founders, our partners, our customers, and every member of our outstanding team—they are the drivers of our growth, and we look forward to much more to come.”
Applicants for the Fast Growth 40 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 2017 annual revenues ranging from $15 to $500 million.
“These 40 companies represent more than 13,000 new jobs and $1.9 billion in revenue growth over the last two years alone,” said Beth Turner, chairman of the 2018 Georgia Fast Growth 40 Awards and Partner at Cherry Bekaert. “We are proud to honor these great companies in our communities.”
