Future 50 is SmartCEO’s largest and most highly anticipated program of the year, recognizing 50 local companies based on their revenue and employee growth over a three-year period. These companies, each of which earn in excess of $5 million in annual revenue, represent the future of the region’s economy and are exemplary leaders in business. This year’s Future 50 winners represented diverse industries, including technology, health, finance, real estate, insurance, biotech and many others.
