the telos institute, a leading global organizational development firm, is thrilled to announce that it has once again been named to the Weatherhead 100 presented by the Case Western Reserve University Weatherhead School of Management. This year’s Weatherhead 100 recipients will be honored during their annual gala – which will be returning to an in-person event – on Thursday, December 8, 2022, at the Hilton Downtown Cleveland.

The Weatherhead 100 awards were established to celebrate Northeast Ohio’s spirit of entrepreneurship and to reward companies that serve as a beacon to all the region’s businesses. This year, the 34th* annual Weatherhead 100 awards ceremony will recognize the region’s fastest-growing companies based on revenue from 2017 to 2021. Winners will also be featured in a special issue of Crain’s Cleveland Business Magazine.

“We are honored to be recognized again as a Weatherhead 100. Though we have clients around the world, we are proud of our northeast Ohio roots and humbled to be recognized alongside other great companies,” said Rick Simmons, Co-Founder and CEO, the telos institute.

With experience across all industries, telos uses deep functional expertise with broad insight to help drive transformational outcomes for businesses.

“We are trusted advisors to a wide range of clients,” says Mike Herzog, President and Chief Experience Officer. “We spend most of our time heads-down, focused on helping our clients liberate their own greatness.  It’s nice to take a step back once in a while and notice how our dedication pays off.”

Companies are recognized in one of three categories, Weatherhead 100 Upstarts, Weatherhead 100 Winners, and Weatherhead 100 Centurions.

  • Upstarts are fast-growing companies with 15 or fewer employees OR net sales of less than $5M last year.
