For the third year, Quest CE, premier provider of insurance continuing education and FINRA firm element training, has been named a 2014 Future 50 company by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce's Council of Small Business Executives (COSBE).
The Future 50 program, now in its 27th year, recognizes privately-owned companies in the seven-county Milwaukee region that have been in business for at least three years and have shown significant revenue and employment growth.
"Quest CE is honored to be recognized as a Future 50 company in one of Wisconsin's most vibrant business communities," said Linda Krenke, president and CEO of Quest CE. "This award is truly reflective of the hard-work, innovation, and dedication of our employees, who without, this achievement would not be possible."
Altogether, the 50 companies on the list are expected to generate more than $2 billion in revenue this year, up from almost $1.8 billion in 2013, the chamber said. Additionally, the total employment for all 50 firms is projected to be 5,550 by the end of this year, up about 12% from 4,941 in 2013.
"It is always encouraging to see such a strong group of applicants and winners in this program each year. These companies truly represent the future of our region," said Mary Steinbrecher, executive director of COSBE.
The Future 50 companies will be honored at an awards luncheon on Thursday, September 11, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at The Hyatt Regency Milwaukee. The luncheon will be hosted by the MMAC, COSBE and BizTimes Media.
"We look forward to honoring these fast-growing companies and learning more about the best practices that are driving their growth," said Dan Meyer, publisher of BizTimes Milwaukee.
