LSWG Selected for Annual Exceptional 53 Business Award

Linton Shafer Warfield & Garrett, PA (LSWG), a certified public accounting business consulting firm headquartered in Frederick, Maryland, was named among The Gazette of Politics and Business 53 most exceptional businesses and organizations in the State of Maryland. The P&B Exceptional 53 Award program, produced by The Gazette P&B, acknowledges the top 53 businesses and organizations in Maryland based on criteria that included the recipient company’s annual revenue and employee growth as well as noteworthy product or service innovations, community service efforts, how they have steered their way through the economic downturn, and their recognition as both a great place to work and do business.

The third annual awards ceremony, held Wednesday September 15th at the Hyatt Regency in Bethesda, attracted a large crowd of appreciative attendees eager to celebrate the accomplishments of the top 53 companies. The ceremony featured a keynote speech by 2008 Pro Football Hall of Famer Darrell Green.

“I applaud these exceptional Maryland businesses that are consistently on the leading edge of innovation and doing their part to help through their pro-active community service programs. To make the 53 list is a great accomplishment,” said Cliff Chiet, publisher of The Gazette P&B. LSWG was profiled in a special section as part of the Friday, September 17, 2010, edition of The Gazette of Politics and Business.

LSWG was recognized for its exceptional growth during the last three years as well as its community service. Over 50 nonprofit organizations have directly benefited from the leadership and contributions of LSWG principals and staff.
