Testimonials from Past SMART Participants

It was a personal, and frankly an unexpected honor for SimCom to have been presented the Smart Award. What I didn’t anticipate was the effect on our team. There was noticeable sense of pride as they rightly viewed the award as recognition for their efforts and dedication over many years.
Walter David, CEO, SimCom Inc., 2013 SMART Award Winner

The SMART Award given to Resource Employment Solutions in 2013, was not only a tremendous honor commemorating our growth, but it also served as an excellent tool that has helped us sustain and surpass our revenue projections. Attending the Awards ceremony offered us a unique opportunity to meet other local companies in complimentary industries that had developed similarly aggressive growth plans as ours. We are thankful to both ACG and our bank representative who nominated Resource for the opportunity to partake in this note-worthy event.

FARO employees work hard everyday to create a culture of teamwork and dedication to service; winning the SMART award was great recognition of those efforts. It’s an honor to stand alongside the area’s top companies and be considered one of the best.

We enjoyed being involved with the 2012 SMART Awards program. What an honor to be recognized as a Central Florida company whose accomplishments set the standard for operational excellence! It was a tribute to the dedication and commitment of our entire team whose focus on our core values of Respect, Integrity, Golden Rule, Humility and Trust, allow us do business the RIGHT Way. We would encourage local companies to participate in the SMART Awards. It's an opportunity to network with other influential Central Florida business leaders and CEOs.

Being recognized for the ACG SMART Awards in 2012 helped us become more visible in the greater Orlando market. Financing and capital has always been my biggest concern as Craig Technologies continues to grow and it means a lot for ACG to recognize our strengths in finance and business planning.
Carol Craig, Founder & CEO, Craig Technologies, 2012 SMART Award Winner

FBC Mortgage was thrilled to be recognized through the 2011 SMART Awards, and we truly enjoyed our association with the members of ACG Orlando.
Joe Nunziata, Co-CEO & Chairman, FBC Mortgage, 2011 SMART Award Winner

Our company's involvement with the SMART Awards program was extremely beneficial on a variety of levels. We were flattered by the amount of positive response we got from the members of the business community in Central Florida. In some measure we expected that, but what we didn't bank on was the wellspring of confidence and good will the award generated among our own staff. They were clearly pleased to be involved with a "winner."
