The scores have been tabulated for Springfield Business Journal’s 2020 Dynamic Dozen, recognizing the 12 fastest-growing companies in the Ozarks.
The Dynamic Dozen companies, in alphabetical order, are Anderson Engineering Inc., BriteCore, Burrell Behavioral Health, CoxHealth, GigSalad, Haven Healthcare LLC, Keller Williams Greater Springfield, Little Sunshine’s Enterprises Inc., Mid-America Safety & Environmental LLC, OMG Commerce, O’Reilly Hospitality Management LLC and Russell Cellular Inc.
A countdown of company rankings to No. 1 will be announced during a May 28 reception and awards ceremony at White River Conference Center.
Also at the ceremony, SBJ will honor five professionals with individual awards and present the Judges’ Choice Award, recognizing a company’s widespread community achievements.
Determined by an independent panel of judges, the individual honors will be awarded in five categories:
• Top Local Executive: Brandy Harris, Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield CEO;
• Top Local Financial Officer: Amber Riddle, Little Sunshine’s chief financial officer;
• Top Local Sales/Marketing Professional: Christine Daues, Paul Mueller Co. marketing strategy manager;
• Top Local Human Resources Professional: Scot Scobee, Springfield ReManufacturing Corp. director of human resources; and
• Employee of the Year: Leah Betts, Greene County collector of revenue.
The Judges’ Choice Award honors a company for qualities that extend beyond revenue to impact the community. Recognizing innovative growth, civic awareness and philanthropic efforts, the judges selected Burrell Behavioral Health for the 2020 honor.
The fast-growth companies are determined through a numbers-based formula that awards points for both annual revenue and percentage growth in 2017, 2018 and 2019. In their applications, eligible companies must report gross revenue of at least $500,000 in each year, and they must operate headquarters within 50 miles of Springfield.
A third party, BluCurrent Credit Union, verified the numbers in the Dynamic Dozen applications.
Profiles of the companies and individuals will appear in a special publication debuting at the event and distributed in SBJ’s June 1 edition.
