Kansas City Foot and Ankle and the Heel Pain Center of Kansas City has been recognized as one of Thinking Bigger Business Media’s 2018 Top 25 Under 25 winners. This prestigious award recognizes small businesses in Kansas City that have overcome challenges, demonstrated a long-term commitment to the community, has financial strength and stability and exhibits distinguished or defining characteristics.
Dr. Mark Green said, “It is such an honor for our team at Kansas City Foot and Ankle and the Heel Pain Center of Kansas City to be chosen as a Top 25 Under 25 Honoree. We are committed to the long-term vision of our practice and to consistently raising the bar on customer service in the medical setting. We believe in delivering first class medicine and world-class patient experiences. I’m truly honored and humbled that our organization has been selected as a 25 Under 25 Winner out of 1400 nominees. We’d like to thank Thinking Bigger Business Media for creating such a unique program.”
Angie Beerup, Chief Operating Officer, noted that “Before Thinking Bigger Business Media launched the 25 Under 25 program in 2001, there was no program that provided formal recognition to companies with fewer than 25 employees. This is interesting, because this segment of business comprises the largest number of companies both locally and nationally, with roughly 83 percent of Kansas City area businesses employing 19 or fewer employees.”
Now in its 17th year, the 25 Under 25 program uses an independent panel of judges made up of Kansas City business leaders to review each entry into the program and select only the Top 25. Companies are judged on financial stability, the ability to overcome adversity and challenges, community involvement, distinguishing or defining characteristics, and company vision.
