Bloomington, MN. (January 11, 2017) – On Wednesday, January 11, Carlson Capital Management will be honored with a Small Business Success Story Award by Twin Cities Business magazine. Each year the Magazine selects ten honorees for the award, honoring them with a featured article in the January issue of the Magazine and at an awards dinner. The Magazine selects a group of honorees by seeking nominees who are Minnesota companies with fewer than 500 employees and who have “a compelling success story.”
“These small businesses have succeeded by seeing—seeing opportunities others missed or ignored, seeing when a tried-and-true business model has grown tired. They know their customers well, and they know their needs. They’re nimble and creative, and they’re rarely discouraged. And each has earned the distinction that Twin Cities Business is honored to recognize,” stated Gene Rebeck, editor of Twin Cities Business Small Business Success Stories.
Greg Carlson, CCM Co-Founder and Principal shared a message regarding CCM’s presence among the other honorees, “Our message to all of our fellow honorees is to think of the transformative nature of what you do. The most rewarding part of what we do at CCM is not in the way we manage money, the tax-saving strategies we employ, the estate planning techniques we implement, the business succession strategies or retirement plans on which we counsel, but it is about the life we help our clients live today and the legacy they leave forever. Your companies are many things—a financial engine, a passion, a way to serve humanity, a creator of jobs for your colleagues, a solution for your customer or client—and so much more—like all wealth, your businesses are a tool to accomplish what is important to you in life. We look forward to hearing about your success as a business and the great things you will continue to do.”
The colleagues at CCM are very appreciative of and honored by the firm’s inclusion in the 2016 Small Business Success Story Awards.
Each year, Twin Cities Business magazine solicits nominations of Minnesota companies with fewer than 500 employees and who have “a compelling success story.” CCM did not pay a fee to the magazine to receive this award, and has paid no fees to the magazine to promote this award. CCM was nominated for this award and provided and verified data related to this award.
