Charlottesville, VA (Vocus) October 2, 2008
The Richmond chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) has named SNL Financial the winner of this year’s Emerging Growth Company Award.
The award was presented last night at the Gala Awards Dinner of the Virginia Capital Day Conference. ACG Richmond selected SNL Financial as the award-winner based on the company’s consistent and profitable growth, exceptional leadership and active community involvement. Headquartered in Charlottesville, SNL is the premier multisector-focused data and research firm in the financial information marketplace.
ACG Richmond presents the Emerging Growth Company Award to a regionally-based company with less than $100 million (but more than $25 million) in total revenue for the most recent fiscal year. Qualifications for winning the award include quantitative factors such as revenue growth, profitability and market share gains plus subjective factors such as culture, community involvement and demonstrated leadership qualities.
SNL employs over 1,000 people worldwide, with about 400 employees located in Central Virginia. The company posted $66.6 million in revenue during 2007, has exceeded 20% in annual revenue growth each year since 2003 -- averaging 26% during that time -- and projects revenue growth of 30% in 2008 based on results achieved year-to-date.
“We are honored to be recognized by the ACG with this award,” said Mike Chinn, president of SNL Financial. “It highlights our commitment to become a global leader in the financial information space while still maintaining the strong connection to the local Charlottesville community that, together with eight other offices in three continents, have provided the talent and inspiration to fuel our growth and continued success.”
