Highland Homes was honored for the third year in a row as one of Tampa Bay’s fastest growing privately-owned companies at the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Fast 50 Awards luncheon, held on July 27, 2017.

We were pleasantly surprised to receive not just one, but two recognitions at this year’s event:

  • No. 8 Fastest Growing Company in Tampa Bay based on Dollar Revenue Growth, with $43.19 million in revenue growth from 2014 to 2016
  • No. 42 Fastest Growing Company in Tampa Bay based on Percentage of Revenue Growth, with 63.75% growth from 2014 to 2016

With more than two decades of experience building new homes in Tampa Bay and throughout Central Florida, we have worked hard to provide quality new homes, a superior customer experience, and to succeed through economic downturns. Gaining recognition at the Fast 50 awards for the third consecutive year is a great achievement!

The list’s rankings are based on revenue growth from 2014 to 2016 with financial information being verified by accounting firm Cherry Bekaert. To be considered for the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Fast 50 Awards, a company must be based in Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, or Sarasota County, have had three consecutive years of growth, and a minimum of $1 million in revenue in 2014.

We were just one of the few companies based in Polk County to make the list, and we’re honored to be recognized for our personal growth, as well as our contribution to the economic growth of Polk County and Tampa Bay.
