Celebrating the top 100

Rochester Business Alliance and KPMG LLP are pleased to present the 2014 Rochester Top 100 companies. These companies represent the fastest-growing privately held businesses in our region, making them a testament to high achievement and role models for success.

As you read and learn more about this year’s companies, you will see that the tradition of entrepreneurship in our community continues to be represented by our Top 100. These companies continue to invest in our community, our people, and our future. Their growth is vital to the success of our entire community, and we applaud them for representing the strength and spirit of Rochester’s business and industry.

The Rochester Top 100 Program helps us to pay tribute to companies that continue to play an important role in our local economy. Companies are ranked according to revenue growth over a three-year period, taking into consideration both dollar and percentage increases. The numbers are verified by auditors substantiating the results. This ranking criteria allows us to recognize both large and small privately owned companies that have, and will continue to have, a positive influence on the future of Greater Rochester. The companies we honor in 2014 have demonstrated an ability to successfully grow their businesses while managing risks and remaining competitive. We are looking forward to honoring these companies at the 28th Annual Rochester Top 100 celebration reception and luncheon on Wednesday, Nov. 5, at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center. This celebration is Rochester Business Alliance’s biggest event of the year, and there is still time to join us as we honor the accomplishments of all Top 100 companies. For tickets or more information, contact Susan George, Rochester Business Alliance Corporate Events Manager, at (585) 256-4612 or Susan.George@RBAlliance.com.

Sandra A. Parker is president and chief executive officer of Rochester Business Alliance. Timothy G. White is managing partner of KPMG LLP.
