These awards illustrate our commitment to both our employees and our business,” he adds.

PSMJ designed the exclusive Circle of Excellence to recognize successfully managed firms that demonstrate outstanding achievements in profitability, overhead management, cash flow, productivity, business development, staff growth, and turnover. Since PSMJ created the award in 2006, Circle of Excellence members have consistently represented all industry facets. “The key differentiator between PSMJ’s Circle of Excellence and other industry awards is that all firms in the A/E industry are eligible. Members are not rewarded for a single outcome such as profit or revenue growth, but on 13 factors that drive the overall performance of a firm,” says Dave Burstein, P.E., Senior Principal at PSMJ. “This award recognizes those firms that are not only good at their practices but also at running their practices as businesses.”
