SunCommon NY Leads 2017 Rochester Chamber Top 100

SunCommon NY, a distributor of renewable energy generation, including solar and wind projects, took the number one spot on the 31st annual Rochester Chamber Top 100 list of the fastest-growing privately held businesses in the Finger Lakes region.  Waste services broker Waste Harmonics LLC and cardiac safety and respiratory services laboratory iCardiac Technologies, Inc. rounded out the top three.  The Rochester Chamber Top 100 is a Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce and KPMG LLP program that ranks businesses based upon both dollar and percentage growth.

Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Bob Duffy said, “The Rochester Chamber Top 100 list serves as a wonderful example of the Rochester and Finger Lakes region’s positive economic evolution. The leading number of companies on the list came from the service, manufacturing, technology, and construction industries.  We congratulate all of the Rochester Chamber Top 100 businesses and wish them continued success and growth.”

To be eligible for the Rochester Chamber Top 100, businesses must be independent, privately held, headquartered in the nine-county Finger Lakes region, and have revenue of at least $1 million in each of the three most recent fiscal years.  The program recognizes Rochester’s reputation as a region of innovation spurred by a strong entrepreneurial spirit. 

SunCommon NY Founder and CEO Kevin Schulte attributes his company’s growth to two things.  “First, the future of solar is now,” Schulte said. “The second is our culture. We started as a value-led business in 2002 and became a certified benefit corporation in 2015. We grow because of our values and commitment to the triple bottom line of people, planet, and profit. Promoting ourselves as a member of the values led business community has presented us growth opportunities in sales, hiring, and our connection to the community. We have put this at the forefront of our marketing and sales efforts, taking a community organizing approach to marketing and engaging our community in a dialogue about the solar opportunity here in Rochester."

Waste Harmonics President and CEO Michael Hess said, “I don’t believe you can achieve the growth we have without a strategic plan and a focus on customer retention. They feed off each other. Customer retention has always been a core strength of ours, which is our foundation for customer references and referrals for new business.”  

iCardiac Technologies President and CEO Alex Zapesochny said, “iCardiac’s rapid growth is attributable to our ability to blend deep scientific insight with unparalleled customer support.  We have always recognized that offering great science and technology is important but it’s not enough.  A company must also excel in the human factors, such as proactive communication and dedication to our customers’ goals.”

The 31st annual Rochester Chamber Top 100 celebration includes an awards dinner and pre-dinner reception with vendor showcase at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center Thursday, November 2.  The reception runs 5-6:30 p.m. and the dinner begins at 7 p.m.  Visit the Rochester Chamber Top 100 page at www.GreaterRochesterChamber.com for more on dinner tickets, vendor table reservations, and sponsorships.
