outstanding achievement in the A/E industry

July 7, 2015 (Newton, MA)—PSMJ Resources, Inc., the premier management consulting firm for the architecture, engineering, and construction industries, announces members of the 2015 Circle of Excellence. Sixty-six exceptional firms made it onto the exclusive list this year.

PSMJ’s Circle of Excellence is designed to highlight firms that are successfully managed and demonstrate outstanding achievements in profitability, overhead management, cash flow, productivity, business development, staff growth, and turnover (based on 13 key performance metrics).

“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,” says 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.”
