In the tenth year of its existence, Pacific Northern joins the ranks of the 100 fastest growing privately owned companies in Dallas Metroplex area. The “Dallas 100” looks for those companies that have assisted in the local broad-based economic growth and recognizes their contributions to the vitality and the entrepreneurial spirit of the business community.
The Dallas 100 Awards program, presented by the CEO Institute and SMU/COX School of Business, celebrates the ideas, determination, and persistence of area entrepreneurs in the diverse spheres of Dallas economy. The 100 winners are selected from over 250 applications and are determined by their headquarters location, ownership status, gross sales, and sales history. They are ranked based on the percentage increase in sales and absolute dollar growth in a 3 year period.
The Awards Ceremony and Dinner attracts over 950 local business and professional leaders annually. The attendees gather not only for the formal presentation and recognition of winners’ accomplishments, but also to share their ideas, and support each others efforts in the business development. Media and press spotlight award-winning organizations and bring public attention to their successes and innovative approaches.
The most noted response given by the honorees as the reason for their success was the quality and dedication of their employees who provided customers with best-of-class service during a period of rapid growth. Pacific Northern joined this opinion. “We are proud to be singled out for our level of service and quality of our products. The exemplary level of services and products is the commitment we uphold in our company.” – Said Eddie Lee, Chairman and CEO of Pacific Northern. “1997 has marked the success of our business with a prestigious recognition from the CEO Institute and SMU/COX School of Business. I believe we will continue the path of growth and become the dominant supplier in the industry within the next five years. We’re committed to our clients’ success by providing quality products and value oriented solutions.”
