CVP Makes Washington SmartCEO magazine’s Future 50
Washington, DC – January 17, 2008 – Customer Value Partners today announced that they have been honored as one of Washington SmartCEO magazine’s Future 50 winners. What makes a Future 50 winner? The key word is growth. Washington SmartCEO magazine/BDO Seidman LLP revealed the publication’s third annual Future 50 winners in the January 2008 issue.
“The Future 50 program is about celebrating growth, which cannot be done without the help and support of others. Whether it is a parent, business partner, or previous employer, we see the value and impact these individuals have and feel privileged to be part of the celebration of how far these CEOs and their companies have come,” says Publisher, Craig Burris.
The Future 50 program recognizes the 50 fastest growing companies in the Greater Washington area based on employee and revenue growth. This year’s Future 50 winners employ 21,000 people and generate more than $6 billion in revenues. Future 50 winners will be recognized at a baseball-themed black-tie dinner event Jan. 17, 2008, at the Westin Alexandria in Old Town Alexandria, VA.
Anirudh Kulkarni, Managing Partner and CEO of Customer Value Partners, commented, “We are honored to have made this list in the company of such strong growth companies in our region. Fast growth means the need for agility, keeping costs down, and investing in the future. We targeted our risk-taking on hiring great talent when we saw it and recognizing strategic opportunities when they come. We set benchmarks for all aspects of the business and look to other companies, not as competitors, but to learn from those who do it right. Continuous learning and investing in the future are the keys to success.”
About Washington SmartCEO

Each month, a variety of businesses in the greater Washington and greater Baltimore areas turn to our pages for features, case-study advice and trend analysis, all with a uniquely local flavor.
