PSMJ Releases Circle of Excellence List

Highlights firms that demonstrate outstanding achievement in the A/E industry

PSMJ Resources, Inc., the premier management consulting firm for the architecture, engineering, and construction industries, announced members of the 2014 Circle of Excellence. Sixty-three exceptional firms made it onto the exclusive list this year.

PSMJ's Circle of Excellence is designed to highlight firms that are successfully managed, based on 13 key performance metrics that demonstrate outstanding achievements in profitability, overhead, cash flow, productivity, business development, staff growth, and turnover. The Circle of Excellence represents the top 20 percent of participants in PSMJ's annual A/E Financial Performance Benchmark Survey.

“Year after year, the diversity of these firms continues to prove that success isn't necessarily defined by the size of a firm, their practice area, geographic location, or even the markets they serve, but instead by a strong commitment to solid business practices,” said Kate Allen, P.E., Director of PSMJ's A/E/C Industry Surveys. “Our passion may be our practice, but top-notch business practices are critical for sustainability.”
