This week we had the pleasure of joining a number of growing businesses at the Crystal Tea Room for the Philadelphia 100 awards gala. For those unfamiliar, The Philadelphia 100 is a merit-based program. Only companies that are among the region’s fastest growing, privately-held companies are eligible.
We were beyond thrilled to learn that Direct Choice Inc. was among the top 100.
Being ranked in the top 100 is such an honor given the history of the awards, which were founded in 1988 by The Entrepreneurs’ Forum of Greater Philadelphia and the Wharton Small Business Development Center. All applicants must be an independent privately held corporation, proprietorship, or partnership and are required to provide a full three-year sales history.
Although we cannot claim to have originated this phrase, it could not be truer for DCI: The success of our clients is the only valid measure of our own. “It’s been exciting and fruitful to play a role in the growth of new and loyal clients,” said CEO Nick Lanzi. “Without their trust and ambition, this award would not be possible.”
