ATLANTA, GA, May 23, 2017 – The Atlanta Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), a global professional organization with the mission of Driving Middle-Market Growth , has recognized TekStream Solutions as a member of the 2017 Georgia Fast 40, recognizing the top 40 fastest-growing middle-market companies in Georgia.
“We are very proud of the consistent growth that we have been able to maintain since founding the company in 2011 and the recognition by ACG for this success the last two years in a row,” said Chief Executive Officer, Rob Jansen. “Our continued focus and shift of our services to helping clients leverage Cloud-based technologies to solve complex business problems have provided us with a platform for continued growth into the future. It has also provided our employees with advancement opportunities to continue their passion to learn new technologies and provide cutting edge solutions to our clients.
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.
“Our continued success and growth can be attributed to pivotal industry changes and embracing new technologies. With the colossal rise of cloud computing, we are working side by side with industry leaders like Oracle to help customers make the leap from legacy on-premise models to more up to date Platform-as-service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) environments. New partnerships like Splunk and other upcoming service lines will continue to fuel our growth for 2017 and into 2018,” stated Judd Robins, Executive Vice President of Sales.
“These 40 companies represent 9,574 new jobs and $2.03 billion in revenue growth,” said Justin Palmer, chairman of the 2017 Georgia Fast 40 Awards and Vice President at Genesis Capital, LLC. “The lower middle-market honorees had more than a 133 percent weighted growth rate, and the upper middle-market honorees had more than a 91 percent weighted growth rate.”
TekStream has seen a three-year growth of over 178% and added over 45 jobs in the last 12-18 months. The company’s impressive rise has allowed it to receive accolades from groups like Inc. 5000 and AJC’s Top Workplaces.
“To be a part of this for the past 2 years is a demonstration of consistent and an unwavering growth with an incredible team,” stated Mark Gannon, Executive Vice President of Recruitment. “There is unlimited potential for growth both within TekStream and our clients and we look for forward to building on this recognition with another successful year.”
