MONTPELIER, Vermont (September 21, 2021)—Every year, Vermont Business Magazine acknowledges Vermont businesses that have exhibited the greatest growth over the previous year. This year, Vermont Mutual Insurance Group® was named one of the top 25 companies demonstrating the greatest growth in the state.
Dan Bridge, Vermont Mutual’s President and CEO, stated "At Vermont Mutual, success starts with exceptional employees and superior independent agency partners. We’re fortunate to have both and that has allowed us to grow and remain a financially secure company for our customers, employees and independent agents."
Vermont Mutual’s Executive Vice President and COO, Mark McDonnell, added "Growth isn’t always synonymous with success. With that idea in mind, we approach business growth in a measured and strategic manner, with an emphasis on balancing growth and profit. It’s particularly satisfying to see that strategy allowed us to excel even during the incredibly trying times that accompanied the pandemic."
The Vermont Business Growth Awards is presented annually by Vermont Business Magazine and KeyBank, acknowledging twenty-five Vermont businesses that have experienced the greatest growth over the past five years according to VBM’s Vermont 100+ published each January.
