2018 Rochester Chamber Top 100 Nomination Form 

Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce and KPMG LLP are pleased to present the 32nd Annual Rochester Chamber Top 100, a program that recognizes Greater Rochester’s fastest growing companies. The Rochester Chamber Top 100 awards program is intended to recognize both large and small privately owned companies that have and will continue to have a positive influence on the future of our community. 

We need your input to make the Rochester Chamber Top 100 a success! If your company, or a company with which you are familiar, qualifies by meeting all of the nomination criteria below, complete the attached form to be considered for this honor. Nominated companies will be ranked according to revenue growth, taking into consideration both dollar and percentage increases. Only nominated companies will be eligible.

We are looking forward to continuing the success of the past 30 years by honoring area companies that make a significant contribution to the strength and growth of our local economy.

Nomination Criteria 

Eligible companies must: 

  • Be independent (no parent company)
  • Be privately held (not publicly traded)
  • Have revenue of at least $1 million in each of the three most recent fiscal years (KPMG reserves the right to make the final determinations of comparable revenue levels; all revenue figures will be held in the strictest confidence by KPMG)
  • Be headquartered in the Greater Rochester area (includes Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming, and Yates counties)

Required Proof of Revenue 

All qualifying nominations will be required to provide KPMG with copies of the nominated company’s statements of income or first pages of tax returns for each of the three most recent fiscal years. If available, please include the required information as proof of revenues when submitting your nomination form.  If not available, a KPMG representative will contact the provided company's financial contact or accountant to verify submitted revenue by July 31.  All revenue and growth information will be held in the strictest confidence by KPMG.

A nomination form must be completed regardless of past participation in the Top 100 program. Neither Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce nor KPMG is responsible for contacting past nominees regarding the completion of a nomination form. The provision of accurate information is the responsibility of the nominee.
