Evangelical Named to Top 100 Organizations list by PA Business Central Magazine
by Andy Elder for PA Business Central Magazine
For 20 years, Pennsylvania Business Central has recognized 100 organizations — from the largest businesses in the region to much smaller non-profits — that enjoyed an extraordinary year, achieved record performance or received awards.
Once again this year, Pennsylvania Business Central received more nominations from our 16-county region than we have previously.
With more than 55,000 organizations in the region, winnowing the list down to just a top 100 is never an easy process. We receive multiple suggestions and nominations from our friends at the chambers of commerce, economic development organizations and other leaders in the business community.
In addition, we scour our pages to unearth and record organizations that have received awards or that were recognized in one way or another during the past year.
Much like last year’s list, the 2010 Top 100 Organizations list includes many of the top places to work in Pennsylvania, as well as shining stars that have performed well enough to garner recognition in publications such as Inc. and Forbes.
Our list also includes solo entrepreneurs who displayed the foresight and courage to take a risk and create an organization that positively impacted the area in the region in which it operates.
With so many potential candidates and so many worthy entities, it is truly impossible to recognize every deserving organization. If we overlooked a deserving company, a far-reaching non-profit or a rising small business, please let us know. We’ll keep an eye on them over the next year and consider including them on our next list.
Each year we strive to offer a list that reflects the breadth and depth of the diverse collection of enterprises that we’re lucky to share the region with.
It is with these thoughts in mind that we proudly present Pennsylvania Business Central’s Top 100 Organizations of 2010.
