Honoree: Herbi-Systems, Inc. – Top 5 Finalist, 26-60 Employee Category
This Top 5 honor signifies that Herbi-Systems is among the most successful businesses in the Mid-South and is credited with shaping the Memphis economy, according to the Memphis Business Journal.
The process in becoming a finalist is extensive and Herbi-Systems made the finalist cut both in 2013 and 2014. Entrants submit a concise executive summary outlining, among other main categories, company history, profile and revenue, strategies, awards, challenges and future plans. If chosen as a finalist, candidates are placed into a rigorous process of interviews with judges (one-on-one and panel) and CPA firms as well as participation in an intro video. Five finalists are chosen per category from among 100 entrants according to size of business. Each finalist receives a plaque and an editorial in the Memphis Business Journal, as well as a cocktail reception and recognition during the newspaper’s award dinner where the company video is presented.
In 2014, Herbi-Systems was among small business finalists DirectFX Solutions, MRI Interventions and Vanick Digital. In 2013, Herbi-Systems joined finalists Greenway Home Services, masterIT, HOG WILD-Real Memphis Barbeque, LLC and Memphis Invest GP.
