Springfield Regional Chamber Super 60 Nominations Due Aug. 12

SPRINGFIELD — Time is running out to submit nominations for the Springfield Regional Chamber’s annual Super 60 awards program. The deadline is this Friday, Aug. 12.

Now in its 27th year, the awards program celebrates the success of the fastest-growing 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 revenues of more than $1 billion, with only-third of winners exceeding revenues of $30 million. All winners in the revenue-growth category had growth in excess of 20{06cf2b9696b159f874511d23dbc893eb1ac83014175ed30550cfff22781411e5} while one-third experienced growth in excess of 65{06cf2b9696b159f874511d23dbc893eb1ac83014175ed30550cfff22781411e5}.

To be considered, companies must 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 last fiscal year, be an independent and privately owned company, and have been 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, or accountants, or be self-nominated. Companies 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.
