Burlington, VT (PRWEB) September 15, 2016
Marathon Health, one of the nation’s leading providers of worksite health centers, was named the fastest growing business in Vermont over the past five years by Vermont Business Magazine at its awards ceremony held Monday night. Marathon Health achieved a 900% growth rate in this time period. Each year, Vermont Business Magazine recognizes businesses in five categories –employee owned, manufacturing, services, technology, and wholesale businesses. Marathon Health was first in the services category as well as all other categories to be the top growth company in the state.
“The growth trajectory that we have experienced at Marathon Health can be attributed to several factors,” said Jerry Ford, CEO of Marathon Health. “First, it’s about our people. We believe if you empower people to fulfil their passion, service excellence and growth follow. Second, it’s about exceeding our customers’ expectations, and lastly, it’s about staying true to why you are in business in the first place. At Marathon Health, we are in the business of changing healthcare and changing health – and we collaborate with customers and patients to make it work. On behalf of our great people, we are honored to receive this recognition from Vermont Business Magazine.”
The Growth Award follows two noteworthy accomplishments over the past few months. Marathon Health was named a Best Place to Work by Vermont Business Magazine, coming in second in the large business category in its first year applying for the award. And in July of this year, Goldman Sachs completed a $30 million equity investment and minority position in the company. Marathon Health will use proceeds from the investment to continue the rapid growth it has experienced since its founding in 2005.
