The Future 50 program, now in its 28th year, recognizes privately-owned companies in the seven-county Milwaukee region that have been in business for at least three years and have shown significant and steady revenue and employment growth. The award was presented to Association Acumen at a special luncheon at the Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee on September 10.

“It’s flattering to be a part of this prestigious group. The Future 50 awardees represent $1.4 billion in combined revenue and employ almost 4,000 people. The MMAC selects Future 50 companies because we are creating jobs, investing in people, making things happen. We’re proud of our staff growth and increased client base over the years,” Gail Bast, President of Association Acumen, said. “We know, of course, that this is only possible through strong client partnerships, steadfast employees and quality vendor partners.”

“We are honored to acknowledge these fast-growing companies and learn more about the best practices driving their growth,” said Dan Meyer, publisher of BizTimes Milwaukee. “It is always encouraging to see such a strong group of applicants and winners in this program each year. These companies truly represent the future of our region,” added Mary Steinbrecher, Executive Director of COSBE.
