The expert says: Mike Harvath, president and CEO of Revenue Rocket Consulting Group, a Bloomington firm that consults with tech companies on growth strategies, said PowerObjects is one of three companies nationally that will be named RCP Rocket Award winners this year. The award, which recognizes sustainable business growth, is a joint project of Revenue Rocket Consulting Group and Redmond Channel Partner, an industry magazine.

“It’s one thing to have vision and focus and another to have excellence in execution,” Harvath said. “Part of why we chose them for the RCP Rocket awards was because of the excellence in execution and the daring, bold move they took to actually change and then get that change implemented.’’
