Rochester is widely known as a region of innovation spurred by a strong entrepreneurial spirit. In recognition of that spirit, each year Rochester Business Alliance and KPMG LLP present the Rochester Top 100, a program that recognizes the fastest-growing privately owned companies in the Greater Rochester region.
True to their profession, Patriot Towers climbed to number 7 from number 40 in 2013. The growth of Patriot can be attributed to the committment and vision of its leadership team; Richard Schickler III, President, Douglas Harradine, Vice President and Deborah Congden, CFO, as well as a steady increase in demand for the construction of wireless communications and renerwable energy towers.
To be eligible for the Rochester Top 100, businesses must be privately held, headquartered in the nine-county Rochester region, and have earned at least $1 million in revenue in each of the three most recent fiscal years.
