Transportation Impact Named to North Carolina FAST 40 List for Second Consecutive Year
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pinehurst, N.C., (October 12, 2017)–Transportation Impact has added yet another award to its growing stack of them. On October 2 the company was honored for the second consecutive year as one of forty midsize companies that have contributed strongly to North Carolina’s growth and to job creation in the state.
“To have made the FAST 40 list two years in a row confirms that Transportation Impact is an integral part of the North Carolina economy”, said Finance Director Kim Watson. We are fully rooted in and committed to not only this state, but also our county and our town, and we feel fortunate to be able to play a part in the economic life of this area, especially in terms of job creation.
To honor the leading contributors to revenue and employment growth across the state, Business North Carolina and Cherry Bekaert LLP, in conjunction with Manning, Fulton & Skinner, P.A. and Regions Bank, host the annual NC Mid-Market FAST 40 program. Growth in the middle market is critical to the expansion of North Carolina’s economy and vital to job creation around the state, states the Cherry Bekaert website.
Nominees for the FAST 40 award must be headquartered in N.C.; a commercial enterprise; either privately owned or publicly traded; have net annual revenue between $10 million and $500 million; and have demonstrated sustained revenue and employment growth over the past three years.
Sales Director Olivia Yankosky, Operations Director Brian Byrd, and Finance Director Kim Watson accepted the award on behalf of the company at a gala luncheon and awards ceremony at Pinehurst Resort on October 2.
“We are thankful for the opportunity provided by Business North Carolina and Cherry Bekaert for companies like ours to showcase our talents,” said Yankosky. We have a great team at TI, and everyone works hard to make the company the best it can be. We’re excited by what we’ve achieved so far, and looking forward to doing even more!
This has been a strong half-decade for the company, as evidenced by a plethora of awards. TI has been named to the Inc. 5000 list five consecutive times, the NC FAST 40 and the NC Top 100 twice, and in 2017 was voted an Inc. Best Workplace.
