Meteor Learning Named a 2020 Fast 50 Company by Boston Business Journal

Wakefield, MA – April 13, 2020 – The Boston Business Journal has named Meteor Learning, a leader in the development of employer-aligned, competency-based educational programs for adult learners to its exclusive 2020 Fast 50 list, which represents the 50 fastest-growing private companies in Massachusetts.

“This recognition is the direct result of the commitment of the Meteor team, as well as our higher ed and employer partners, who are relentlessly focused on our mission to put ‘students first,'” said William Rieders, Chief Executive Officer, Meteor Learning. “I am so proud of this team, who, even during this challenging time, remains committed to closing the critical skills gap.”

The numbers were crunched and analyzed by the Business Journal’s research department and by the media company’s Fast 50 partner, Withum.

“At a time when positive business news is hard to come by, the privately held companies included among this year’s Fast 50 have something to celebrate indeed,” Carolyn M. Jones, market president and publisher of the Boston Business Journal, said. “The COVID-19 crisis has changed the way we work and live, and like many others, we have reimagined our event and content to ensure the health and safety of all. Our celebration, originally scheduled to be held on May 20, is now expected to be held in November.”

A Fast 50 special publication is scheduled to run in the May 22 weekly edition of the Business Journal. A second publication, complete with rankings by revenue, will be published in conjunction with the Fast 50 event at the Aloft Hotel Seaport in South Boston, where we will announce the actual rankings.

Companies on the Fast 50 must have their headquarters in Massachusetts and must have reported revenue of at least $500,000 in 2016, and $1 million in 2019 were considered.
