“The Washington, D.C. business community represents a diverse group of markets and industries that are all well represented among the finalists of this year’s Corporate Growth Awards,” said Jean Stack, Managing Director at Houlihan Lokey and chair of the 2015 Corporate Growth Awards Committee. “We want to congratulate this year’s winners for continuing their contributions to one of the largest, most successful economies in the country and for driving corporate growth across the region.”
The ACG National Capital Corporate Growth Awards recognize the enterprises and individuals in the greater Washington, D.C. metro area’s business community that have exhibited excellence in corporate growth and dealmaking over the past year.
“The game has been defined; we’re leveraging the General Catalyst investment to out train, out maneuver and pivot around the competition, enabling a new class of innovation for our customers to experience,” said Omar Balkissoon, OGSystems chief executive officer and co-founder. “We, and other middle market players are responding to the Pentagon and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s call for action to innovate and increase research and development activities addressing the short comings in the traditional DoD contractor supplier base.”
