Currently accepting nominations from companies based in Hampton Roads, Cherry Bekaert LLP (“the Firm”) and Inside Business magazine are delighted to present the 5th Annual Roaring 20 program.

Honoring the Virginia region’s most dynamic businesses and their contributions to the local economy, the program recognizes Hampton Roads’ top 20 fastest growing companies based on revenue and employee growth. Selected by an independent panel of local business leaders and university business faculty, winners will be profiled in a special Inside Business feature and honored at an awards banquet.

  • Be headquartered in the Hampton Roads area;
  • Have been established prior to fiscal year 2011;
  • Have experienced successive annual revenue growth from 2011 to 2013; and
  • Have reported at minimum $2 million in 2013 gross revenues.

Entry forms can be submitted by individuals associated with a successful, Hampton Roads-based company. Self-nominations are encouraged and accepted. Cherry Bekaert will contact each nominated company’s chief executive officer or chief financial officer to verify submitted information. All financial data will be kept confidential and not be published.
