SpectraLogic Takes Home Top Company Honors in Technology
Spectra Logic has been named the winner of the 2012 Top Company Award in the technology category. The annual program sponsored by ColoradoBiz magazine, UMB Bank, and Deloitte is widely regarded as Colorado’s most competitive business award.
Now in its 25th year, the Top Company program is open to companies based in Colorado or with a significant presence in the state. Firms in 14 industry categories are judged on three criteria: financial performance, outstanding achievement, and community involvement.
“Over the course of our 33 years as a Colorado-based business, we have focused on providing the best products and services to our customers, while at the same time creating a work environment that rewards employee dedication and values community involvement,” said Molly Rector, executive vice president of product management and worldwide marketing at Spectra Logic. “This approach has been a strong force behind our continued success and we are honored to be recognized by one of the area’s top business publications for these efforts.”
Companies undergo a rigorous evaluation by the accounting firm Deloitte, which selects three finalists in each industry category. A panel made up of ColoradoBiz magazine’s editorial board, area business leaders, and a community representative then selects the winners.
Bart Taylor, publisher of ColoradoBiz, called this year’s Top Company entries “the deepest and strongest field in memory,” adding, “as difficult – and at times agonizing — as it was for the judging panel to select winners from among the finalists, I think it left us all with a feeling of optimism about the future of Colorado business.”
Top Company winners and finalists were honored on September 12 at an awards celebration held at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
