Apple Growth Partners Wins NorthCoast99 Award

 Firm recognized for the seventh consecutive year as one of Northeast Ohio’s 99 best places to work for top talent

CLEVELAND/AKRON, Ohio (September 2, 2014) – ERC has once again recognized Apple Growth Partners as one of Northeast Ohio’s 99 best places to work.  This is the seventh consecutive year that Apple Growth Partners has won the coveted NorthCoast 99 Top Workplace award.

Chairman of Apple Growth Partners, David Gaino, shared, “Awards like Northcoast 99 are a true honor that should be shared with every single team member in the Firm. We are grateful to receive this distinguished award for a seventh time.  Our Firm experienced a number of rapid fire changes in FY 2013-2014 both internally and externally.  It was also a year where every person on the AGP team was called upon to step up to the challenge, and boy did they.

Receiving Northcoast 99 helps us reflect on and appreciate the deep commitment of the talented people at AGP that not only help us qualify to be considered for the award, but go way beyond to apply that talent to the everyday challenges businesses face in NEO. It’s not a coincidence that those same team members helped us earn this award for our 7th year running.”
