Now Accepting Hampton Roads “Roaring 20” Nominations

Cherry Bekaert LLP, in partnership with Hampton Roads-based Inside Business magazine, is excited to announce nominations are currently being accepted for the 7th Annual Roaring 20 awards.

The Roaring 20 program recognizes Hampton Roads’ fastest growing middle-market companies and their contributions to the region’s economy. An independent panel of local business leaders and university business leaders select honorees based on revenue and employee growth. In addition, nominated companies are evaluated on factors that resulted in company growth, challenges, obstacle overcome and projected long-term sustainability. Selected companies will be profiled in an Inside Business special report and honored at an awards banquet.

To be eligible for the Roaring 20, a company must meet the following requirements:

  • Headquartered in the Hampton Roads region.
  • Experienced consecutive annual revenue growth from 2013 to 2015.
  • Established before fiscal year 2013.
  • Reported gross revenues of at least $2 million in 2015.

Individuals associated with a Hampton Roads-based company can nominate a business for the Roaring 20. Self-nominations are also encouraged and accepted. Nominations must be submitted by Monday, August 19. Cherry Bekaert will review submitted entry forms and contact the chief executive officer or chief financial officer of nominated companies to verify all information. All financial data will be kept strictly confidential and not be published.
