On Monday, December 2, 2013, our own John Krahulec, COO and Executive VP, joined a select group of companies representing the Greater Washington winners of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 up in Times Square to ring the closing bell at NASDAQ. This group represents “the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. Award winners were selected based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth from 2008 to 2012.” As we mentioned before, it is an honor to be named to this select annual list. It is exceptional to be included on the list for a second year. But Deloitte and NASDAQ were astounded when they realized that Concept Solutions had been named to the Fast 500 for its seventh consecutive year. After admitting that they should have been more aware of repeat winners, some of the reps at Deloitte asked if they could do a follow up story on Concept Solutions.
During the bell ringing ceremony, the tv cameras record and simultaneously broadcast the event on the big screen in Times Square, as well as on NASDAQ.com and on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” program.
