Vistage Members Recognized On Forbes List of the Best Small Companies in America

San Diego, February 2, 2016 Vistage Worldwide, Inc., a global organization that assembles and facilitates private advisory boards for CEOs, senior executives and business owners, is proud to announce that two Chicago member companies have been recently been named to Forbes list of the Best Small Companies in America for 2016:

  • Redmond – Rhett Roberts, CEO
  • West Paw Design – Spencer Williams, President

“We’re proud to recognize two members who have grown significantly in the past year,” said Rob Knauer, Regional Executive for the Mid-west Region for Vistage Worldwide. “It’s great to see both companies recognized for their contribution to the community and to the business community in their respective regions.”

The list was compiled by Forbes contributor Bo Burlingham. All of the companies included have experienced significant growth in the past year, but the list looks at more than just company growth, wrote Burlingham in an article.

“Growth is good, but the leaders of these companies have had other, nonfinancial priorities as well, such as being great at what they do, creating great places to work, providing great service to customers, making great contributions to their communities and finding great ways to lead their lives. The wealth they create, though substantial, is a by-product of success in these other areas,” continued Burlingham.

Both companies will be featured in the February 2016 issue of Forbes magazine.
