Westwood Ranks #6 on Twin Cities Fast 50November 3, 2015
The Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal ranked Westwood at #6 on its 2015 Fast 50 List, which recognizes the fastest-growing privately held companies in the Twin Cities. Westwood’s top-ten rank was the result of a 143-percent revenue growth rate between 2012 and 2014. The firm provides professional services focusing on land surveying and engineering to support national commercial, residential, wind and solar energy, power delivery and oil and gas development.
Headquartered in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Westwood’s CEO and president, Paul Greenhagen says, “Making the Fast 50 list was a first for us and coming in at number six is quite an honor, especially considering the fast-growth industries that are on the top ten with us.”
In addition to professional services, this year’s Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal’s Fast 50 list includes a number of IT firms, business consultants, staffing firms, retailers, home health care companies, marketing agencies, and more.
Greenhagen says Westwood’s success comes from having a strong team and clear direction for the company, “Our growth would not be possible without the dedication and passion of our people to provide the best products and services to our clients. Making sure we recruit and retain the expertise that can make that happen is a commitment and a culture at Westwood. Our spot on the Fast 50 list acknowledges the hard work of the entire Westwood team, and I am very proud of this accomplishment.”
The Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal’s Fast 50 award is one of eleven awards Westwood received in 2015 in the categories of fast-revenue growth, top workplaces, and marketing excellence.
