Marstel-Day, LLC Takes “2012 Washington Smartceo/Clifton Gunderson Future 50 Award” for Emerging Growth

Marstel-Day Environmental Consulting, LLC has been recognized with SmartCEO Magazine’s “Future 50” award. The award is given to 50 companies for their significant revenue and employee growth over the last three years. According to the January, 2012 Issue of the Magazine: “Future 50 is the largest and most anticipated SmartCEO program of the year and recognizes 50 fast-growing companies based on the combined growth rate of revenues and employees over a three-year period. These companies represent the future of the region’s economy; are exemplary leaders in business and the community, and each generate in excess of $5M in revenues.”

News of the award came as Marstel-Day, headquartered in Fredericksburg, VA, begins its tenth year in the environmental consulting industry. “Our growth over the past three years reflects the culmination of a measured, controlled approach, coupled with heightened interest on the part of the public and private sectors of the true benefits of investing in the environment and ecological services,” said Rebecca R. Rubin, the firm’s president and managing partner.

Marstel-Day’s staff tripled from 30 full-time personnel in February 2008 to an expected head count of 90 by February 2012. The firm opened new offices at Stennis Space Center , Mississippi and Oceanside, CA in 2011, and expanded office space in its Fredericksburg, Alexandria and Oakland offices to accommodate the growth. “This year’s group of winners has ignored the recession and created innovative new avenues for growth. The business community is healthier and stronger due to their efforts,” said SmartCEO magazine President and Co-founder Craig Burris.

Rubin will accept the award on Thursday, January 26, when SmartCEO will announce the winners on-stage in front of more than 650 leaders of the local business community at a dinner reception hosted at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, VA.
