Admiration is an important part of any company’s DNA; therefore, we’re very proud of our latest accolade. Buffalo Business First recently honored 17 local businesses as “WNY’s Most Admired Companies,” and The Martin Group made the distinguished list. With some assistance from readers, the publication narrowed down companies “that deserve to be respected,” Business First wrote in its December 19 edition. “We considered company growth, success as an employer and connection with the community.” TMG’s dramatic expansion of revenue and staff in 2014 played a role in the honor, along with the contributions as a growing downtown company to WNY’s resurgence, donations and pro-bono work for regional non-profits and employee education and retention rate. We would also like to congratulate fellow honorees (and TMG clients) ADPRO Sports, Carmina Wood Morris DPC and Phillips Lytle LLP.
