FSI is proud to announce that it has been named one of Cobb’s Top 25 Small Businesses of the Year by the Cobb Chamber of Commerce and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution for the fifth consecutive year in a row.
Businesses were nominated earlier this year, and after a review by an independent panel of judges, FSI was selected as one of the Top 25 companies. Candidates were evaluated based on the criteria published by the U.S. Small Business Administration. Those criteria include staying power, growth in number of employees, increase in sales or unit volume, current and past financial standing, innovative products and services, response to adversity, evidence of contributions to community projects and overall management philosophy.
Founder and President Ken Marbutt noted, “It feels good to be recognized by the community for our efforts. We couldn’t do it without our great staff and great clients to help keep the business going in the right direction.”
The Top 25 were recognized at the Cobb Chamber’s First Monday Breakfast on June 4. The Cobb Chamber of Commerce represents Cobb County’s diverse, dynamic business community. The Cobb Chamber is a member-supported business organization working to maintain a healthy economy by bringing business and industry to the area, helping established firms grow and building the community through outreach and service.
