The Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University honored MobilityWorks last evening as one of its Centurion Award winners. The Centurion is part of the annual Weatherhead 100 Awards, which recognizes Northern Ohio companies for their growth over the last four years. MobilityWorks is the largest retailer of wheelchair accessible vans in the United States and the largest upfitter of commercial vans for businesses that transport people in wheelchairs.
The Weatherhead 100 awards were established to celebrate Northeast Ohio’s spirit of entrepreneurship and to reward companies that serve as a shining example to all the region’s businesses. The select list of honorees incorporates a method for rewarding sales growth in companies of all sizes, including the 100, Upstarts and Centurions. This year, the 26th annual Weatherhead 100 awards ceremony will recognize the region’s fastest-growing companies based on revenue from 2008 to 2012.
“We are very proud to be recognized by The Weatherhead School of Management and to be among all those other growing companies in the Northern Ohio region,” said Bill Koeblitz, President/CEO of MobilityWorks. “We couldn’t do it without having remarkable clients who really appreciate what we do and then share their experience with other people.”
