SMD Honored as SmartCEO Future 50 Winner

Award recognizes 50 fast-growing Charlotte companies

Charlotte, NC, April 22, 2016 --( Strategic Management Decisions (SMD), a leader in predictive analytics for employee surveys and assessments, was recognized last night as a 2016 Future 50 Award winner by SmartCEO. The program recognizes Greater Charlotte’s 50 fastest-growing mid-sized companies that have experienced outsized growth based on a combined three-year average of revenue and employee growth.

“Charlotte is certainly booming and it’s exciting to see the range of winners – from an HR technology company such as SMD and renowned home builder to a leader in orthopedics – that are making an impact on the city and across the nation,” states co-founder Dr. Shane Douthitt. “In our industry, SMD is the ‘David’ in a sea of ‘Goliaths‘ – probably a similar story to many of the companies recognized last night. I hope we can continue to be an example that exemplifies the power of hard-working individuals combined with innovation and a solid value proposition.”

The 2016 Future 50 winners collectively generate more than $1.53 billion in annual revenue and employ over 10,300 individuals. The ceremony, held at the Hilton Charlotte Center City, was attended by more than 500 local business executives and guests.
