The Washington Business Journal Recognizes Emmes in Two "Top Company" Lists
The Emmes Corporation today announced that it was named one of the top women-owned businesses in the Washington metropolitan area by the Washington Business Journal. The company was ranked as the seventh largest women-owned business in the Washington region, up from number eight last year.
Emmes was also included as one of the Washington Business Journal’s Top 100 private companies in September. Last year’s revenues were $90 million, and the company now has more than 600 employees.
“Emmes began 40 years ago as a small team of dedicated researchers working on our first contract with the National Cancer Institute,” said Dr. Anne Lindblad, president and chief executive officer. “Today, we’ve supported over 1,000 clinical trials and studies in more than 60 countries on six continents. What has remained constant is our priority on building a truly diverse workplace and actively encouraging employees to have a voice in the way we conduct our business.”
She added, “We attract people dedicated to conducting research focused on developing the best possible treatments and ultimately prevention options for diseases ranging from the well-known, like cancer, to the newer, like Zika. The recognition we’ve received this year is tied directly to our employees’ passion and energy.”
Earlier in 2017, Emmes was recognized for a second consecutive year as a Washington Post Top Workplace. The company also received a Workplace Seal of Approval for the third year in a row.
We collaborate with our clients to produce valued, trusted scientific research. Our team members at Emmes are passionate about making a difference in the quality of human health, and we have supported more than a thousand studies across a diverse range of diseases since our formation in 1977. Our research is contributing to a healthier world. For more information, visit the Emmes website www.emmes.com.
