NK Awards

SmartCEO Future 50 Award for 2015 and 2014
The Future 50 company leaders succeed at making wise decisions that take business to the next level. While it is easy to play it safe, the Future 50 focus on taking risks. SmartCEO’s largest and most anticipated awards program of the year recognizes companies that have increased their revenue and expanded into new markets. These CEOs are expanding their businesses at a time when other companies are scaling back — or shutting their doors altogether.
