The scores have been tabulated for Springfield Business Journal’s 2022 Dynamic Dozen, recognizing the 12 fastest-growing companies in the Ozarks.
The D12 companies, in alphabetical order, are Alps Pharmacy; Arrowpoint Solar; Artemis Overland Hardware; Burgess Aircraft Management LLC, dba OzAir Charter Service; Citizens Memorial Hospital; CoxHealth; Keller Williams Greater Springfield; Little Sunshine’s Enterprises Inc.; Next Level Solutions; OakStar Bank; Pluck LLC, dba Keep Supply; and Russell Cellular Inc.
A countdown of company rankings to No. 1 will be held May 19 during a reception and awards ceremony at Oasis Hotel & Convention Center.
Also at the ceremony, SBJ will honor six professionals with individual awards and present the Judges’ Choice Award to Toth and Associates Inc.
Determined by an independent panel of judges, the individual honors are awarded in six categories:
• Top CEO or Managing Partner: Adam Toth, Toth and Associates Inc.;
• Top Chief Operations Officer: Michael Smith, Next Level Solutions;
• Top Chief Administrative Officer: Erik Frederick, Mercy Hospital Springfield;
• Top Sales/Marketing Professional: Tricia Chapman, Nixa Public Schools;
• Top Human Resources Professional: Ursula Gorman, Phoenix Home Care & Hospice Inc.; and
• Employee of the Year: Mark Kastner, Mercy Hospital Springfield.
The Dynamic Dozen fast-growth companies are determined by a numbers-based formula that awards points for both annual revenue and percentage growth in 2019, 2020 and 2021. In their applications, eligible companies reported gross revenue of at least $250,000 in each year, and they must operate headquarters within 50 miles of Springfield or must have provided segmented revenues for the 50-mile radius. A third party, Arvest Bank, verified the numbers in the D12 applications.
Profiles of the companies and individuals will appear in a publication debuting at the event and distributed in SBJ’s May 23 edition. For more information and past honorees, visit SBJ.net/D12.
For most, winter offers a break from gardening. But there’s plenty of action at Amanda Belle’s Farm on East Primrose Street, a Springfield Community Gardens project at the edge of the Cox Medical Center South campus.
