Virginia's Fantastic 50 LogoWashington, D.C. — April 28, 2016 — The Virginia Chamber of Commerce has named Higher Logic, an industry leader in cloud-based community platforms, as one of Virginia's Fantastic 50 companies for 2016. The award is part of the only statewide competition program to recognize Virginia's fastest growing companies. The Virginia Chamber of Commerce has recognized local, successful companies for 21 years.

Higher Logic's COO Ben Goodkind accepted the award during the Fantastic 50 Networking Reception and Awards Banquet on Thursday, April 28. As a Fantastic 50 winner, Higher Logic will be recognized in a dedicated section of the May issue of Virginia Business magazine.

"Volunteers are important to the success of every organization, and members inherently want to give back and deepen their involvement," says Higher Logic CEO Rob Wenger. "The goal today is to use all the tools at our disposal to understand our people and their interests and skills, and then track all the activity to ensure all the volunteer energy and engagement is optimally channeled."

Key factors in the selection of Higher Logic for this award include an impressive 98 percent year over year growth for three consecutive years, coupled with the addition of nearly 50 jobs to its rapidly growing employee base. For the last four years, the company has also been included in the Inc. 5000 List. The company is headquartered in Arlington, Va.

"We are honored to be included in the rankings as one of the fastest growing companies in the vibrant Virginia economy," says Rob Wenger, CEO of Higher Logic. "Our consistent growth keeps us in good company with impressive, local companies, but it also proves Higher Logic is consistently exceeding expectations. The Fantastic 50 recognition serves as a reminder and a motivation for us to continue innovating for online communities, engagement platforms and the community management field."
