FES: Fastest Growing Company
Future Energy Solutions Tops South Florida Business Journal’s Fast 50 Honorees
Ranked #1 in Less Than $25 Million Annual Revenue Category
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – (August 19, 2016) – Fort Lauderdale-based Future Energy Solutions (FES) has been named a Fast 50 company by South Florida Business Journal and was ranked #1 in the annual revenue less than $25 million category.
Fast 50 recognizes South Florida’s 50 fastest-growing companies – half with more than $25 million in annual revenue, and half with revenue less than that. Combined, the two groups reflect the culture of South Florida, as well as the innovative ways businesses compete and succeed in an expanding marketplace.
In ranking Future Energy Solutions #1, the South Florida Business Journal called FES “a shining example of the importance of pivoting a business strategy before it can stick and flourish.”
Under the guidance of CEO Daniel Gold, who founded the company in 2009, the Business Journal lauded Future Energy Solutions for transitioning in 2013 from being a manufacturer and distributor of lighting fixtures to also providing customers a complete energy-efficient lighting system under a lighting as a service contract designed to create monetary savings.
Today, FES provides lighting as a service to business customers with no upfront investment through its unique Gold Initiative Program – a strategy that has led to two-year revenue growth of 366 percent.
The Company now employees almost 100 team members and has expanded across 24 states. FES’ U.S. headquarters is firmly entrenched in Broward County, South Florida. “Our State’s economic growth, combined with its worldwide popularity, makes South Florida a fantastic location for our headquarters,” Gold added.
The Company’s growth was created by FES working with a multitude of business sectors. FES has upgraded lighting for clients in a wide variety of markets, including casual dining restaurants, shopping plazas, schools, gas stations, automotive dealerships, parking garages, warehouses and more.
2016 has been an honor-filled year for Future Energy Solutions. In additional to being a Fast 50 company, FES was named one of Florida’s “Best Companies To Work For” by Florida Trend magazine, earned two prestigious Gold awards in the Golden Bridge Awards® along with a Bronze Golden Bridge award, and won three Stevie® Awards (Gold, Silver and Bronze) in the American Business Awards.
