Nominations Close August 2 for Super 60

SPRINGFIELD — The Springfield Regional Chamber is seeking nominations for its annual Super 60 awards program, presented by Health New England, with platinum sponsor People’s United Bank. 

Marking its 30th year, the awards program recognizes the success of the fastest-growing and privately-owned businesses in the region, which continue to make significant contributions to the strength of the regional economy.

Each year, the program identifies the top-performing companies in revenue growth and total revenue. Last year, Total Revenue winners combined for more than $750 million in revenues, with 25% of these winners exceeding revenues of $40 million. All winners in the Revenue Growth category had growth in excess of 13% while one-quarter of the top 30 companies experienced growth in excess of 75%. 

To be considered, companies must be independently and privately owned, be based in Hampden or Hampshire county or be a member of the Springfield Regional Chamber, produce revenues of at least $1 million in the past fiscal year, and be in business for at least three full years. Companies are selected based on their percentage of revenue growth over a full three-year period or total revenues for the latest fiscal year. 

Companies may be nominated by financial institutions, attorneys, accountants, or be self-nominated, and must submit a nomination form and provide net operating revenue figures for the last three full fiscal years, signed and verified by an independent auditor. All financial information must be reported under generally-accepted accounting principles and will be held and considered confidential and not released without prior approval.

Nomination forms are available by contacting Grace Szydziak at szydziak@springfieldregionalchamber.com or (413) 755-1310.  Nominations must be submitted no later than August 2.

The Super 60 awards will be presented at the annual luncheon and recognition program on Oct. 25, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Chez Josef in Agawam.
