YOUR BUSINESS AUTHORITY
After the economic challenges of this past year, you’ll be sure to enjoy reading this issue. The 2021 Dynamic Dozen have shown tremendous growth in their various industries. And to our surprise, this was a record year for companies to throw their hat in the ring to be on the annual fastest-growing list.
This year’s front-runner is new to the awards altogether, and it’s actually their first year to be eligible. Next Level Solutions recorded 1,094% growth from 2018 to 2020. The insurance software provider’s employee count is growing every month and officials say they aren’t slowing down.
New this year is Tenacious Company of the Year award, which goes to Burrell Behavioral Health. This special honor recognizes the behavioral health provider’s ingenuity in expanding care over the past year.
We’re also honoring six individuals who go above and beyond in their roles. Top Chief Operations Officer is a new award added to the mix.
People are the heart of every business, and these individuals have worked tirelessly to stand out in supporting their companies and communities.
Congratulations to all the honorees. Please enjoy this special publication as we celebrate the 18th annual Dynamic Dozen awards.
