PROVO, Utah—Career Step, a leading online healthcare education company, has ranked among the top 100 fastest growing companies in Utah for the 10th consecutive year. This list is published by the MountainWest Capital Network, and it ranks the 100 fastest growing companies in the state based on the percentage of revenue growth in the previous five years.
“We’re very proud of Career Step’s placement on the Utah 100 list for the 10th year in a row,” said Michael Wilstead, Career Step CEO. “This achievement represents the continuing dedication and commitment of Career Step employees, and demonstrates the value students and graduates find in the Career Step training programs.”
The Utah 100 rankings were announced on October 21 at a luncheon at the Grand America Hotel. Governor Gary Herbert was the keynote speaker, and he praised the entrepreneurial spirit required to maintain growth in the current economy.
“As one of the fastest growing companies in Utah, you are to be applauded for the employment opportunities and economic development you provide to the great state of Utah,” said Governor Herbert in a letter to the Utah 100 winners. “I know what it takes to build a successful business and join those who value your accomplishments.”
The companies named to the Utah 100 list are chosen from thousands of applications submitted to the MountainWest Capital Network. Applicants and award winners represent a variety of industries including education, retail, technology, healthcare, and financial services, among others.
