Pentec and each of our employees share in this recognition and are extraordinarily proud of our Future 50 designation

Pentec Health today announced that it has been selected as a winner of the 2012 Philadelphia SmartCEO/Clifton Gunderson Future 50 awards, recognizing the area’s top 50 fastest-growing companies. Award winners generate at least $5 million in annual revenue and are selected based on the combined growth rates of revenues and employees over a three-year period. These companies represent the future of the region’s economy, are exemplary leaders, and collectively boast $10 billion in revenues and more than 55,000 employees in the Greater Philadelphia region.

The award recognizes Pentec Health’s impressive turnaround, starting in 2008 under the leadership of Joseph Cosgrove, President and CEO. With the re-engineering of Proplete®, the company’s renal nutrition product for patients with chronic kidney disease, Pentec Health quadrupled its business, tripled profits, and increased employees four-fold, paving the way for a 28-year-old company to transition into a world-class organization over the past three years.

“Pentec’s vision, mission, and operating model have evolved with an eye to the future of patient care; characterized by a dissatisfaction of the status quo,” said Mr. Cosgrove. “Given our orientation, it is extremely gratifying to be recognized as a company with an exemplary growth record and continued expectations for future success and high standards of excellence. Pentec and each of our employees share in this recognition and are extraordinarily proud of our Future 50 designation.”

SmartCEO Magazine President and Co-founder Craig Burris further comments,“Comprehensive growth is applause-worthy in healthy economic times. This year’s group of winners has ignored the recession and created innovative new avenues for growth. The business community is healthier and stronger due to their efforts.”

SmartCEO Magazine will profile local award winners in its January 2012 issue of the publication. Winners are unranked and were selected purely based on their growth numbers. Over 120 nominations were submitted for review. A complete listing, as well as the Pentec Health profile, can be found at
