With massive revenue growth over the last five years, LeafFilter™ Gutter Protection was ranked the 8th fastest growing business on the prestigious Weatherhead 100 award listing. LeafFilter™ has now ranked within the Top 10 of the Weatherhead 100 in consecutive years, finishing 4th in 2012 and 8th in 2013.

"This is a thrilling accomplishment for our company, as we're proud to finish near the top of the Weatherhead 100 for the second straight year," said Matt Kaulig, owner and president of LeafFilter™ Gutter Protection. "It's great to see all of our hard work and dedication recognized; meaning our constant drive to excellence is on the right track."

The prestigious award ranking list celebrates entrepreneurship and rapidly growing Northeast Ohio businesses with net sales of at least $100,000 in 2008 and more than $1 million in 2012, with at least 16 full-time employees in 2012. Check the full 2013 Weatherhead 100 award ranking list on Case Western Reserve University Weatherhead School of Management's website.

The Weatherhead 100 list is highly regarded throughout the region and is a testament to each and every company's hard work, commitment to excellence and is determined on an annual basis. In a press release sent out from Weatherhead with the annual ranking list, a turbulent and uncertain economy did not deter the five-year average revenue growth of 174 percent for the Weatherhead 100.

"While still producing some of the world's best manufacturers, it's amazing to see Northeast Ohio's economic shift to innovations in professional services, healthcare, technology and software," said Robert Widing, dean of the Weatherhead School in a recent statement. "We are proud to be associated with firms across all sectors who are leading the way for our region."

As one of the 100 fastest-growing companies in Northeast Ohio, LeafFilter™ Gutter Protection was honored along with other award winners at the Weatherhead 100 Awards on Tuesday, December 3rd. The black-tie event was held at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven in Mayfield Heights, Ohio to honor the award winners and recognize their accomplishments.

The respected Weatherhead 100 award list has been released annually since 1988 by Case Western Reserve University's Weatherhead School of Management to celebrate Northeast Ohio's spirit of entrepreneurship.

To be considered for the Weatherhead 100, applying companies must be headquartered in Ashland, Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Erie, Geauga, Huron, Lake, Lorain, Mahoning, Medina, Portage, Richland, Stark, Summit, Trumbull or Wayne counties. The businesses could not have been a subsidiary of another company during the last five years, an individual franchise operation or a nonprofit organization.

Magazine's Inc. Hire Power Awards. The nation's best gutter protection company was also selected as a Cleveland Plain Dealer Top Workplace for the first time in 2013.
