2018 Weatherhead 100
KENT, OH, November 30, 2018 – QualityIP, a leader in Managed IT Services, has been selected as one of the 100 fastest growing companies in Northeast Ohio for the second consecutive year. The Case Western Reserve University Weatherhead School of Management started the Weatherhead 100 thirty-one years ago to celebrate entrepreneurship and the success of the region’s rapidly growing business environment. The annual gala and awards ceremony highlight the impact of these companies on the local economy, their respective communities, and all Northeast Ohio.
Each year the ceremony honors the fastest growing companies in three categories:
• Upstarts employ fewer than 15 employees and have less than $5 million net sales in the last year.
• Centurions have had net sales of $100 million or more in the last year.
• The Weatherhead 100 honorees, like QualityIP, employ a minimum of 16 people fulltime and have net sales of at least $100,000 in year one and over $1 million in year five.
QualityIP placed 38th on the list this year jumping up twelve spots from last year.
CEO Ryan Markham and COO Sarah Markham represented the company at the celebration last night. Ryan noted, “We are incredibly excited to be here for the second year in a row. Our employees truly are dedicated to serving our clients and making our company better every day. This award is for them and our loyal customers. They all make coming to work a pleasure. We can’t wait to see where the path we’re on takes us next year. For now, though, we’re going to enjoy this success and celebrate how far we’ve come.”
