Coupled with the liquidity options we have been able to provide to our shareholders, SSB provides a clear and compelling return on investment for investors and employees of the company,” commented Tim Springer, CEO of SSB BART Group.
“Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.
