September 2018, Carver Financial was once again recognized as one of the Lake-Geauga Fast Track 50 winners. The Fast Track 50 recognizes the contribution of local companies to Lake and Geauga county economies. The Fast Track 50 Committee compiles a list of the fastest-growing companies in Ohio’s Lake and Geauga counties. Companies are ranked by sales and employment growth over the previous five-year period and the top 50 are recognized. Carver Financial Services Inc. has consistently been recognized on this list for the last nine years.
The 2018 Lake-Geauga Fast Track 50 honors companies and individuals in Lake and Geauga counties who have shown growth. The Fast Track 50 Committee compiles a list of the fastest-growing companies in Ohio’s Lake and Geauga counties. Companies can nominate themselves. To be eligible for the award, companies must be located within the two-county region, be organized as a for-profit business, and must meet a minimum sales profit. Companies are ranked by sales and employment growth over the previous five-year period and the top 50 are recognized. Winners are chosen by a math formula: 80% of weight is given to sales growth and 20% of weight is given to employee growth. To more fairly compare larger and smaller companies, the Fast Track 50 is divided into Established and Emerging categories. For 2018, Established companies must report revenue of at least $2.75 million in 2017, the baseline year for all evaluations. Emerging companies are required to have 2017 sales of between $250,000 and $2.75 million. There are 25 companies on each list. Out of 100 firms nominated, 50 received the award.
