Based on this study forged by Entrepreneur, Torch is recognized as a well-rounded company that has mastered a balance of impact, innovation, growth and leadership. Torch ranked #16 out of 360 organizations.
“We are proud to have been recognized by Entrepreneur magazine for our unique approach to innovation, growth, leadership and impact,” says Torch President John Watson. “Our continued success as a 100% employee-owned company can be credited entirely to our invaluable employee-owners. We are fortunate to be a part of a growing group of exceptional people who are loyal, innovative, and kind- they make Torch a wonderful place to work.”
“Our annual evaluation is a 360-degree analysis of top privately-held companies representing and serving a variety of industries,” explains Lisa Murray, Chief Insights Officer of Entrepreneur Media, Inc. “These businesses are real-world case studies for any entrepreneur who seeks to master the four pillars that can greatly impact the longevity and growth of their businesses. With the Entrepreneur 360, success is measured by achieving balance throughout the entire organization, predicated by revenue.”
Honorees were identified based on the results from a comprehensive study of independently- owned companies, using a proprietary algorithm and other advanced analytics. The algorithm was built on a balanced scorecard designed to measure four metrics reflecting major pillars of entrepreneurship—innovation, growth, leadership and impact.
