Top companies in northeast Ohio honored at fourth annual awards ceremony

AtNetPlus, Inc. today announced that the firm was again honored as a Crain’s Leading Edge Award recipient. The economic contribution to the region by AtNetPlus and the other winners was showcased at the recent awards ceremony in Cleveland.

At the event, 86 middle-market organizations were recognized for creating value in the 17 counties that comprise northeast Ohio. Recipients were selected using metrics based on reported earnings and total taxable employee compensation during the past three years.

Kirk Neiswander President The Entrepreneurs Edge stated, “These companies contribute to the region in a variety of ways. Their impact is far reaching and measurable. For example, they have pumped $1.7 billion in compensation back into northeast Ohio since 2007. In addition, 60 of the reporting companies spent a median of $8 million with local vendors during the same time period. That has a significant impact on the entire region.”

He concluded, “AtNetPlus typifies the growth and innovation shown by these companies. The Information Technology industry requires vision and nimbleness in the marketplace. They are working hard to provide leading edge solutions and quality service to their customers. We are delighted that they made the list for the second year in a row.”

AtNetPlus Partner Jay Mellon stated, “We are excited to be mentioned among this impressive list of companies and offer our congratulations to each of them. I also want to commend our team. They continue to surprise me with their resourcefulness and ability to adapt new technology to fit the needs and expectations of our clients. Their positive attitude and work ethic help keep us moving ahead.”
