Annapolis, MD (PRWEB) January 31, 2017
Cipher has been selected as a 2017 Best-Run Company, a program by SmartCEO.
A best-run company must exhibit the highest standards of nine critical aspects: process, vision, customers, culture, leadership, communication, growth, brand and talent. These firms — generating in excess of $2.76 billion in collective annual revenue and employing more than 20,000 people — are leading their industries, have overcome significant challenges and have created lasting value in their communities. They span many industries that are succeeding in the Baltimore-Washington region — from IT and government contracting, to staffing and public relations. They exemplify leadership, strategic vision and character.
"For more than 15 years, SmartCEO’s mission has been to share inspirational stories about the region’s top companies. The Best-Run Book is a shining example of how companies like Cipher and their leadership teams are able to become industry leaders, overcome significant challenges and create lasting value in their communities,” says Craig Burris, founder and CEO of SmartCEO.
