The past year was an exciting one for corporate growth and business deals in the National Capital region.
There was massive consolidation within the region’s crowded government contracting community, with companies coming together to build large solution portfolios for their government customers and seeking the efficiencies of scale that come with significant corporate growth.
But the region’s business community is comprised of more than just government contracting companies. And that diverse ecosystem of businesses across a number of different industries – from technology, to healthcare, to hospitality – also exhibited incredible growth in the past year.
Now, the National Capital Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) will honor the companies that drove that corporate growth and business success with the 2019 Corporate Growth Awards. Each year, the Corporate Growth Awards celebrate the most impressive growth companies, deals, deal teams and dealmakers from the year prior.
The 2019 Corporate Growth Awards will be announced and presented at a black tie gala on May 14, 2019 at the Ritz-Carlton Tysons Corner. The finalists for the 2019 Corporate Growth Awards are:
