Foundation Financial Group has been named an Atlanta Business Chronicle 2013 Pacesetter Award winner. The 18th Annual Pacesetter Awards event acknowledged 100 successful Atlanta companies for taking business to the next level and was attended by employees from FFG’s Atlanta Regional Sales Center, located at 100 Galleria Parkway #1400.
Foundation Financial Group received a 2013 Pacesetter Award for the corporation’s unconventional methods and quick growth. Foundation Financial has expanded the company’s employee base by 70 percent in the past two years. Sales revenue for the financial services company also increased significantly within the same period.
Foundation Financial Group credits its success to providing every client with Best in Class customer service that allows the corporation to maintain an A plus rating with the Better Business Bureau. Foundation Financial is determined to deliver high quality mortgage services as quickly as possible. The company keeps their average loan processing period at 15 days, three times faster than the 45 day industry average. FFG’s mission is to serve its customers with unmatched honesty, integrity and competence.
“Receiving the 2013 Pacesetter Award is particularly special for FFG,” said Foundation Financial Group Senior Vice President of Operations, William Gordon. “As a corporation born in this great city, FFG intends to remain a driving force in Atlanta’s business growth. We have invested in company development across all areas. Foundation Financial has recruited the best talent, expanded multiple divisions, acquired quality affiliates, and opened new branches. FFG is increasing revenue, and our philanthropic campaigns are taking community involvement to new heights. Overall, I am exceedingly proud of where FFG’s smart and sustainable growth is taking us.”
A breakfast event was held at the Cobb Galleria Center to bring together employees from Atlanta’s 100 Fastest Growing Companies and bestow the 2013 Pacesetter Awards with ceremony. The breakfast was a celebration of business success in a challenging economy and an opportunity for networking across industry lines. Over 700 Atlanta entrepreneurs attended the sold-out event.
“At the Pacesetters Awards breakfast, hundreds of professionals gathered to learn about what each of the top 5 Atlanta companies do to set themselves apart,” continued Gordon, who was honored to attend the Pacesetter Award event on behalf of Foundation Financial Group. “Each top 5 company presented their own approaches to business websites, mobile apps, and cross marketing. But what inspired me most was hearing every one of the top growing companies mention their employees are a priority. They’re all building the value of company success in the minds of their employees.”
Pacesetter Awards are presented annually to the fastest-growing private companies, representing various industries. Nominated companies must be based in the 20-county Atlanta area, cannot be a subsidiary of another company, and must also have been established by first quarter 2009. Additionally, eligible companies must report a two-year growth in sales exceeding 50 percent and 2011 revenues between $1 million and $300 million. Companies are ranked by a growth index formula used to even the playing field among companies of different sizes.
