The University of South Florida recently notified L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc. that it has been selected as a member of USF's Fast 56 Class of 2014. Hundreds of companies were nominated for this honor, and L.R.E. can now count itself among an elite group of award winners.
The USF Fast 56 identifies, recognizes and celebrates the world's fastest growing USF Bull-owned or Bull-led businesses. The Fast 56 not only celebrates their success, it also provides a forum to pass lessons to the next generation of Bull entrepreneurs.
L.R.E.'s Rachel Vitale (Executive Vice President) and Rosemary Woolever (Corporate Secretary) were originally nominated for the USF Fast 56 award. The twin sisters and USF alumni are excited about the honor.
"L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc. is extremely humbled by the USF Fast 56 nomination and recognition," said Vitale. "The education Rosemary and I received at USF has played an integral role in our careers and roles in our business. We are proud of the fact that L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc. is established as Florida's largest and most reputable foundation contractor. Not only do we aim to help property owners with foundation and restoration repairs, L.R.E. also strives to make USF as proud as we are for having received our education there. Go Bulls!"
The USF Fast 56 awards dinner will be held on the USF campus at the Marshall Student Center Ballroom on Friday, April 11 at 6pm. Dozens of companies, including L.R.E. Ground Services, Inc., will be announced and recognized at this event, which will feature fellow Bull and TECO President and Chief Executive Officer John Ramil as the keynote speaker.
