Uniguest - Future 50 Winner

Award identifies and recognizes 50 fastest–growing, 
privately held companies in Middle Tennessee


Nashville, Tenn. – August 12, 2008 - Uniguest has been named a 2008 Nashville Area Chamber Future 50 company. The Future 50 is an annual recognition program celebrating the 50 fastest-growing, privately owned companies headquartered in Middle Tennessee.

The Future 50 are identified through a nomination form, which includes questions about a company’s past and projected sales and employment growth.  To be eligible, companies must be privately owned, headquartered in Middle Tennessee, have 10 or more employees or annual revenue of at least $500,000, and anticipate revenue and employment growth of 10 percent or more per year for the next three years. The nominations are collected by the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and tabulated by KraftCPAs, the official accounting firm of the Future 50 Awards.

“This year’s competition was made especially difficult by the high number of applications we received — as a matter of fact, the highest in almost four years,” said Charles Sueing, president of The Sueing Agency, Nationwide Insurance & Financial Services and chairman of the Chamber’s small business council. “It goes to show the strength of these companies, despite the challenges of a less-than-perfect economy.” 

Uniguest, an IT Services Firm, has seen an increase in revenue of over 30 per cent during the past fiscal year. And anticipate a growth of 30 per cent per year over the next three years.

“We are especially pleased to be named as one of the Future 50,” said Shawn Thomas, Founder and CEO. “With today’s economy being the way it is, this is a special merit that was only possible through the loyal and dedicated employees of Uniguest. Our team understands the value we create not only to our customers, but to the company. And that has helped us grow at a solid pace.

Uniguest received recognition as a Future 50 company in a special section published by The Tennessean and at a reception and awards dinner to be held on Thursday, September 18, 2008 at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel.

The Future 50 Awards are presented by the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, and sponsored by Bank of America, The Tennessean, KraftCPAs, and Frost Brown Todd
