MANSFIELD, MA, ISSUED APRIL 25, 2016 – HR Knowledge (, an integrated human resources service that offers HR, payroll and benefits services to approximately 300 clients with a concierge-level approach, has been named a 2016 Future 50 winner by SmartCEO. The company will be recognized in SmartCEO magazine and celebrated at a black-tie-optional awards ceremony on June 15, 2016, at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel.

This recognition comes on the heels of the company also being recognized as one of the fastest-growing private companies in Massachusetts by the Boston Business Journal at their April 21 event.

The Future 50 Awards program, the largest and most anticipated SmartCEO awards program of the year, recognizes 50 of the region’s fastest-growing, mid-sized companies. Winners in large “Blue Chip” and small “Emerging Growth” categories will also be announced. These companies, according to SmartCEO, “represent the future of the region’s economy and embody the entrepreneurial spirit critical for leadership and success.”

SmartCEO’s mission is to educate and inspire the business community through its award-winning magazine, connections at C-level events, and access to valuable online resources. SmartCEO’s integrated media platforms reach decision makers in the Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, metropolitan areas.

“Ask any CEO and they’ll tell you that leading a fast-growing company is one of the most challenging and fun things an entrepreneur can do,” said Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, president of SmartCEO.  “Whether they’re just starting out or rapidly trying to scale an established operation, this year’s Future 50 winners have executed their growth visions year after year, created job opportunities, and made our region a better place to work and live. There is nothing these amazing entrepreneurs can’t do if they put their minds to it.”

“We are thrilled to be recognized by SmartCEO,” said Jeff Garr, partner and CEO.  “We are especially grateful to our dedicated employees and our loyal clients for making this recognition possible.”

More than 300 local business executives and guests are expected to attend this year’s awards gala.
