Curriculum Associates Named One of the 50 Fastest-Growing Private Companies and One of the Largest Private Companies in Massachusetts by the Boston Business Journal
NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., May 24, 2018—The Boston Business Journal announced that Curriculum Associates has been named to their 2018 “Fast 50” list of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in Massachusetts for the fourth consecutive year. In addition, Curriculum Associates was named the 44th Largest Private Company in Massachusetts by the Boston Business Journal for the third year in a row. In 2017, Curriculum Associates placed 48th on the list.
The Fast 50 winners were selected and ranked based on a formula that counts revenue growth in the preceding three years. Approximately 130 privately held companies applied for inclusion by submitting nominations that included financial performance, and the Business Journal’s Research Department and CPA firm Withum, a Fast 50 partner, evaluated the figures provided to determine the rankings. Only those firms with a headquarters in Massachusetts and revenue of at least $500,000 in 2014 and $1 million in 2017 were considered. Companies that did not show growth from 2016 to 2017 were excluded. The Boston Business Journal announced the rankings at an awards reception on Thursday, May 17, at W Boston.
