Boston Business Journal Names Curriculum Associates a Middle Market Leader

North Billerica, MA, February 16, 2021

Curriculum Associates has been named one of Boston Business Journal’s (BBJ) Middle Market Leaders, a ranking of the 50 highest-growth companies in Massachusetts.

The list is compiled through BBJ research and includes both private and public companies across all industries, from life sciences and technology to construction, professional services, and more. To qualify, companies must report annual revenue between $25 million and $1 billion for 2017, 2018, and 2019. The BBJ ranking of firms uses a weighted final score that incorporates a company's three-year growth and total revenue.

“We are honored to be recognized as one of the top 50 Middle Market Leaders in Boston for the second consecutive year,” said Rob Waldron, CEO of Curriculum Associates. “The last 12 months have been challenging for businesses everywhere, but our talented team’s unwavering dedication to students and teachers has allowed Curriculum Associates to continue to succeed in its mission and stay true to its long-term, conscious mindset.”

The program also includes awards for the Middle Market Deal of the Year, Innovator of the Year, and Executive of the Year, as well as a keynote speaker.

“We are happy to celebrate fast-growing, innovative companies in the middle-market sector,” said BBJ Market President and Publisher Carolyn Jones. “These companies make a tremendous impact on our local business community and have reported impressive growth in recent years.”
