Apple Growth Partners (AGP) is delighted to be recognized by ERC as one of Northeast Ohio’s 99 best places to work for the 10th consecutive year.
NorthCoast 99 recognizes exceptional places to work for top performing people that drive results, provide competitive advantages, and allow businesses to innovate and grow.
“I am thrilled that Apple Growth Partners has been named a NorthCoast 99 winner for the 10th consecutive year, making AGP a legacy award winner. It is a true testament to leadership’s commitment to foster a collaborative and innovative environment that will help all employees achieve their personal and professional goals,” said Crista Bartolomucci, AGP’s recruiter and HR coordinator. “Our partners have been committed to upholding our Shared Values and using them as a guide as we continue down the path of growing the firm. Being dedicated to our positive culture and client service has led us to mergers with two firms consistent in the same values.”
As part of AGP’s 2020 vision to double the size of the firm, it completed two acquisitions in the past year. The first, effective January 1, 2017, was with 56-year-old KPFF, LLC of Beachwood, and effective July 1, 2017, Schlabig & Associates, which served the Northeast Ohio region for more than 55 years. The acquisitions fulfill Apple Growth Partners’ goal to achieve sustainable growth and passion to remain locally owned in Northeast Ohio.
“It seems like just yesterday we were named to the NC 99 list for the first time. In these past 10 years, our firm has seen the worst and the best, from the challenges of the Great Recession to the recent double-digit growth through our acquisitions. Through it all, our leadership group strives to make Apple Growth Partners an incredible place to build a career, and our employees are what have made our culture what it is today,” said Chuck Mullen, AGP’s chairman. “I am proud of our entire team for once again earning Apple Growth Partners the illustrious NC 99 designation.”
