Fast 50

September 2, 2014

- Andrew Shimberg, CEO, VitalSmarts

“Our future is bright when the future of our franchisees is bright. I take great satisfaction in seeing the success of others, whether that be our employees or franchisees who have entrusted us with, in many cases, their life savings, to own their own business.”

- Scott Abbott, CEO, Five Star Franchising

“When you are growing a business that is already at a large scale and hiring hundreds of new employees each year, the biggest challenge is maintaining a strong culture to attract and retain the best people. Of course another challenge is making sure you have enough office space which is why we are moving into a new building this fall.”

- Eric Morgan, CEO,  AtTask

“[Challenges that come with growth include] maintaining our culture focused on creating and growing a team of exceptional people, growing leaders in our middle management and working across departments as our departments grow larger and stronger.”

- Jonathan Beckstrand, CEO, MasterControl

“We have been very fortunate to have assembled a very energetic and capable staff, but our growth has stretched our ability to locate and recruit the people we need to continue to drive the growth that our business model generates.  Having an 18-year track record of developing quality projects, conducting business with integrity and our reputation in the industry has helped attract quality people to our organization.”

- Kip Wadsworth, CEO, Wadsworth & Sons III

“One of the biggest challenges faced by physicians and hospitals is the complex and ever-changing need to translate clinical documentation into the thousands of diagnostic and procedural codes for reimbursement and reporting purposes. Aviacode’s growth stems from offering quality cloud-based medical coding software and services and hiring top talent to solve complex problems for physicians and hospital systems. Aviacode is helping reduce the costs of delivering healthcare and improving the quality of clinical reporting.”

- David Jensen, Founder & CEO, Aviacode

“We pride ourselves on not only producing an innovative, reliable product that can meet the needs of a diverse range of customers, but also 24/7 customer service and support to make sure that those critical systems have continuing success. And the result of this commitment is clear: Almost half of new Spillman clients are a result of referrals, and nearly 45 percent of Spillman customers have used the software for at least 10 years. Over 30 percent have used the software for more than 15 years. Taking care of our customers’ needs is not only the right thing to do, but it is what accelerates our growth.”

- Lance Clark, CEO,  Spillman Technologies
