NASHVILLE, TN - October 25, 2010 - Capital Confirmation, Inc., the creator and leading provider of secure audit confirmation services, has been named a 2010 Future 50 winner. This award is an annual recognition program of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the 50 fastest-growing, privately owned companies in the Nashville area. This is Capital Confirmation's fourth time to win the Future 50 Award.
"It's a great honor to be selected as a Future 50 company for the fourth time," said Chris Schellhorn, CEO of Capital Confirmation, Inc. "The growth our company has seen in the last two years is a result of providing financial institutions and the accounting profession a more secure and efficient way of managing audit confirmation requests. It's also the hard work and excellent customer support our employees deliver everyday that makes this recognition even possible."
Future 50 companies are identified through a nomination form, which includes questions about a company's past and projected sales and employment growth. To be eligible, companies must be privately owned, headquartered in Middle Tennessee, have 10 or more employees or annual revenue of at least $500,000, and anticipate revenue and employment growth for the next three years. The nominations are collected by the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and tabulated by KraftCPAs, the official accounting firm of the Future 50.
"Future 50 companies are a testament to the ideal business climate in Middle Tennessee. The success of these companies helps drive economic growth in this area," said Chamber President & CEO Ralph Schulz. "The success of these companies reinforces Middle Tennessee's reputation as a good place to start and grow a business. It's important that we recognize these companies for the contributions to our community."
"Recognition like this is so important for small business owners and their employees. It can provide the exposure and motivation to propel their business to a new level of success. Future 50 has provided that forum for nearly two decades," said Charles Sueing, Nashville Chamber chair for small business and owner of The Sueing Agency/Nationwide Insurance.
Capital Confirmation received recognition as a Future 50 company at a reception and awards dinner on Thursday, Oct. 21, at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel. This accomplishment is in addition to recent awards presented to Capital Confirmation earlier this year including being ranked 96th on the 2010 Inc. 500 List and the 2010 Best In Business which recognizes the most successful private business in the Middle-Tennessee area.
