MIDDLEBURY, Conn., Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- iSend today received its latest recognition for industry leadership, with CEO Steve LaBella winning the Chief Executive magazine Mid-Market CEO award for Innovation. LaBella received the award this afternoon at the 3rd Annual National Middle Market Summit at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. Co-hosted by GE Capital, the National Center for the Middle Market and The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business, the event attracted CEOs, academics, policymakers and industry experts to discuss key business opportunities, challenges, and solutions that will help middle market companies grow.
iSend's most recent recognition includes being ranked #73 in the Inc. 500 list of America's fastest-growing private companies, and being named to the Marcum Tech Top 40, an annual compilation of the 40 fastest growing technology companies in Connecticut, for the second year in a row.
