7 companies to be honored for innovation by ACG N.J.

The New Jersey chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth will honor seven companies for their innovative strategies at the Corporate Growth Conference and Awards event, June 11 at the Palace at Somerset Park in Somerset.

The New Jersey-based companies will be honored for having policies that nurture a culture that encourages continuous excellence and demonstrates sustained growth as a result of those efforts.

The companies — and their honoree:

  • Integris: Rashaad Bajwa, CEO;
  • Opal Energy: Kyle Shroufe, founding partner and CEO;
  • ControlTek: Tom Meehan, president;
  • 911 Inform LLC: Ivo Allen, CEO;
  • Hetherington Group: Cynthia Hetherington, founder and CEO;
  • FreezPak Logistics: Dave Saoud and Mike Saoud, co-founders and co-CEOs;
  • Princeton Longevity Center: Dr. David Fein, CEO.

M.J. Jolda, president of ACG N.J. and principal and chief marketing officer at CMO and Co., said the honorees stood apart from the other nominations.

“These companies distinguished themselves by their rigorous commitment to innovation, excellence and corporate growth,” she said.

Event Chair Christian Amato, president of CMA, agreed.

“I am ecstatic to see the seven companies selected as ACG honorees,” she said. “Their innovative approach to their industry and dedication to supporting New Jersey and the communities they are part of distinguishes them as some of New Jersey’s finest corporations.”

The executives of the seven companies being honored will share their insights and real-life experiences about leading innovation for sustained excellence and corporate growth.

The event will run from 4-8 p.m. June 11. (For ticket information, click here.)

“We are expecting a record crowd,” Jolda said. “Every astute C-suite executive, business owner, service provider and others focused on corporate growth and the M&A community in New Jersey and beyond are going to want to hear how these leaders achieved such a high level of success in their corporations.

“Given that we are recognizing middle-market companies with annual revenues between $5 million and $500 million, there will be something for everyone in the room to immediately adapt to their own situations and company culture.”
