Vital Voices of the Environment.
Fredericksburg, VA (Vocus) August 18, 2009
Marstel-Day, LLC, an environmental consulting firm headquartered in downtown Fredericksburg, announced today that it was named to the national, Zweig Letter "Hotfirm" List, which recognizes the 200 fastest-growing architecture, engineering, and environmental consulting firms in the U.S. on the basis of percentage growth and dollar growth.
Marstel-Day has also received prestigious awards from a variety of other organizations in 2009, in recognition of its business achievements over the past several years.
- In mid-July, Inc. Magazine honored Marstel-Day with national recognition by including it on its "Inc. 5000 List," which identifies the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S., based on growth in revenue and number of employees over four years.
- In mid-March, Marstel-Day was selected as one of "The Fantastic 50," a prestigious state award presented by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce that recognizes 50 fast-growing companies in Virginia. Companies are judged based on their four-year total growth rates (2004-2007), and awards are formally announced at a banquet each April.
- In early January, Marstel-Day received a project merit award from the Environmental Business Journal (EBJ), for launching a new audio program on its Website titled, "Vital Voices of the Environment." This innovative series features interviews conducted by company President and CEO Rebecca Rubin with critical environmental thinkers and planners, each of whom offers a perspective on a key issue that affects the future of our planet. The interviews span topics ranging from global climate change to localized environmental challenges, and offer a diverse set of informed opinions, allowing listeners to assess for themselves the shape and magnitude of present environmental challenges. The award was presented in a special ceremony at EBJ's Environmental Industry Summit VII in Coronado, California on February 20, 2009.
Company President and CEO Rebecca Rubin commented, "I am thrilled that recognition has come from diverse sources including the private sector, state, and national levels, and also that we've been recognized for advancing the goal of environmental awareness."
