February 13, 2017 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
February 13, 2017 - Tucker Toys is pleased to announce that the company has been named a finalist for The 2017 Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) Award.

The award recognizes New Jersey's most successful middle market corporate growth companies.

Tucker CEO and President, Mark Nathan, said, "It's very satisfying that our hard work to continue to grow Tucker Toys has gained recognition by such a prestigious organization as the ACG. It's a tremendous honor to receive the validation from other companies and business peers that our efforts are making a positive impact in so many ways."

Pamela Harper, Chair of The 2017 ACG NJ Corporate Growth Conference & Awards and a Director on ACG NJ's Board, noted that there were an impressive number of nominations, resulting in tough decisions by the selection committee. "We were thrilled with all the options and we were equally delighted by the high quality of the submissions."

Tucker Toys was selected from all sectors of industry in the state, including manufacturing, technology, life sciences, healthcare, hospitality, logistics and transportation, among others. The nomination for ACG's Top Honor was based on Tucker's New Jersey-based headquarter location; significant business operation within the state; employment and business opportunities for New Jersey residents; overall significant growth history timeline: and innovation in its business approach that has resulted in game-changing products and services, reaching a new market, and accelerated speed to market for its products.

"We feel especially proud that the ACG took note of Tucker's ongoing mission to make a difference in the world with our focus on developing distinctive toys that encourage exercise, good health and positive interaction through play," Nathan added.

Nathan will be joined by the CEOs of three other companies being honored by the ACG to comprise a dynamic panel, moderated by Pamela Harper, to share insights and real life experiences about leading innovation for sustained excellence and corporate growth at the May 4, 2017 half-day event being held from 7:30 a.m. 12:00 noon at The Palace at Somerset Park, Somerset, NJ. They will be joined at the podium by keynote speaker, Carlos Rodriguez, President & CEO, ADP®, recipient of The 2017 ACG NJ Corporate Lifetime Achievement Award, and program emcee Tom Bergeron, Editor, NJBIZ.

"We are expecting a record crowd," observed Sally Glick, President of ACG NJ, "every astute business owner and service provider is going to want to hear how these four achieved such a high level of success in their corporations. Given that we are recognizing middle market companies with annual revenues between $5 million and $500 million, there will be something for everyone in the room to immediately adapt to their own situations and company culture."
