Denver, CO – November 13, 2018 – Velocity Global, the leading provider of global business expansion services, announced CEO Ben Wright is named a CEO of the Year finalist, one of the state’s most prestigious individual awards, by ColoradoBiz Magazine. Velocity Global also ranked #45 on the magazine’s Top 250 Private Companies in Colorado.
ColoradoBiz has also named Velocity Global with the following accolades: Top Company in Colorado in 2018; Top Private Company in 2016 and 2017; and CEO of the Year finalist in 2017.
“I owe this recognition to my entire team at Velocity Global,” said Ben Wright. “Without them, this award wouldn’t be possible and I’m humbled and grateful to be recognized as a top executive in Colorado for the second year in a row.”
CEO of the Year finalists are judged on a variety of criteria, including: community involvement, character traits, and professional success.
- Community Involvement: Ben is an active supporter of First Descents, a non-profit organization that provides support for young adults battling cancer through guided outdoor adventure programs. Earlier this year, Velocity Global extended a transformative multi-year financial commitment to First Descents to support the development of a new program specifically designed for young adults battling multiple sclerosis. Ben served as a volunteer at the program, calling it “a week I’ll never forget.”
- Character Traits: Velocity Global was founded on five key values: velocity, service, integrity, professionalism, and empowerment. These values are expected from each employee—including Ben. He is the embodiment of each of these values, and lives them every day, leading his team by example.
- Professional Success: Ben started Velocity Global in 2014, and within just four years, he grew the company to nine offices around the world. Additionally, the company has experienced tremendous year-over-year employee, revenue, and profit growth. His vast knowledge of building and growing organizations, enhancing brand awareness, and capturing market share continues to be a valuable factor for his professional successes.
“Ben is more than deserving of this great honor, and is the true definition of a virtuous leader and CEO,” said Rob Crabtree, Vice President of Operations at Velocity Global. “The company would not be where it is today without Ben’s dedication and drive. He continually strives to provide an exceptional global expansion experience to our clients, and a rewarding and driven work environment for his team.”
