Lectrus Wins BusinessTN Magazine’s “Hot100“ Award


Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA (November 14, 2009) – Due to their success over the past three (3) years, Lectrus Corporation has received BusinessTN magazine’s “Hot100” award for 2009.

“Hot100 status is becoming a much sought after designation and source of pride for companies across Tennessee,” noted Drew Ruble, editor of BusinessTN Magazine. “This annual look at 100 fast-growing, emerging companies to watch in the Volunteer State and the individuals leading them should be required reading for any businessperson in Tennessee. The list provides a snapshot of some of the firms yielding the job growth and innovations that are keeping Tennessee’s economy going.”

BusinessTN’s Hot100 is BusinessTN magazine’s annual look at Tennessee companies on a roll. Fast-growing, emerging or in some cases, simply full of promise, they represent some of the best Tennessee has to offer in terms of entrepreneurial vision and growth. From startups to more established companies like Lectrus whose mature growth is remarkable, this patchwork of companies-big and small, highly profitable and increasingly profitable, full of dreams or realizing their dreams-is perhaps best described as a list of “companies to watch.” Selection is based on numerous factors, ranging from revenue and employee growth, growth as compared to industry average, and projected growth among other criteria. In sum, the second annual Hot100 spotlights companies that are enriching the local and regional economies, providing jobs and fueling the Volunteer State’s entrepreneurial culture. These businesses speak volumes about the value of free enterprise-especially amid today’s challenging economic times.
