Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
GoodCents was recently recognized as one of Atlanta's 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
The annual "Pacesetter Awards" honors privately-held Atlanta businesses that have experienced exceptional growth and are headquartered in the 20-county Atlanta metro area. To qualify, companies must have experienced a two-year growth in sales of more than 50 percent, and posted 2012 revenues between $1 million and $300 million.
The Atlanta Business Chronicle's 18th Annual Pacesetter Awards Ceremony was held at Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday, April 26, 2013. GoodCents was honored to be selected as the 27th fastest growing company in Atlanta out of the top 100 Pacesetters. GoodCents grew their employee base 32.7 percent over the past year and demonstrated 122.2 percent revenue growth since 2010.
Bill Rodgers, Chief Executive Officer and President of GoodCents, states: “Any time you have growth at that level it requires not only the utilization of internal personnel but also a significant recruiting, training and development effort to be able to respond to the opportunities. We are excited about the confidence and trust placed in GoodCents by our customers and look forward to additional strong growth in the future.”
Rodgers attributes the company’s growth to new and expansion contracts in the West and Midwest as well as developing an energy-efficient integrated service delivery platform. GoodCents also broadened its technology delivery capabilities through a proprietary technology platform called GoodCents Connect®, which allows data analysis and back office capabilities to be supported through a single platform.
