NEW YORK, February 20th, 2015 – Durante Rentals is being honored as one of New York’s fastest-growing companies by SmartCEO Magazine. The Future 50 Award is presented to emerging mid-sized companies to recognize their fast growth based on a three-year average of employee and revenue growth. The 2015 Future 50 winners collectively generate $2.5 billion in annual revenue and employ 12,136 workers in the greater New York area.
More than 400 New York-based executives joined Durante Rentals and the other Future 50 honorees at a Hollywood-themed awards ceremony at Capitale in Manhattan. The evening was jam-packed with excitement as the winners celebrated their achievements while networking with other high profile attendees over dinner and cocktails.
Durante Rentals CEO, Anthony Durante, accepted the award on behalf of the company and offered one of his many tips for success. “Listen to people for what they know and not how they dress or look, or their age.” Anthony does not believe in negativity, nor do his partners. They train their employees to recognize that situations can be dealt with swiftly and with minimal complaint or stress if they work through the problem with a positive attitude. They are unmatched by competitors in their market in the positive atmosphere they have created.
Other Future 50 companies represented at the awards ceremony included up-and-comers like Trump National Golf Club of Bedminster, Tough Mudder, APS Technology, and Rethink Autism Inc. “The companies we honored this year are growing despite the economic hardships we have all been facing. These companies are investing in themselves, investing in their people, and rising above the rest. They deserve to be recognized and celebrated because they are moving the economy and the region forward,” says Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, President of SmartCEO Events. “We are proud to recognize them for their achievements and growth.”
Durante Rentals and the rest of the Future 50 winners are profiled in the January/February issue of SmartCEO Magazine in print and online.
