For the second year in a row, the Pittsburgh Business Times has named Larson Design Group (LDG) a winner of its prestigious Fast 50 Awards, with LDG jumping several places from #26 in 2018’s rankings to #18 in 2019. The Fast 50 celebrates the success of companies in the Pittsburgh area that have experienced rapid revenue growth between 2017 and 2018. 

LDG’s CEO Keith Kuzio, PE, and COO David Martin, PE, accepted the award at a reception at The Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh on Aug. 28.  

LDG entered the western Pennsylvania market in 2012 with offices in Beaver and Wexford and has grown rapidly, now ranking among the Business Times’ largest engineering firms in the region based on office billings. The second consecutive year of being named to the Fast 50 was due to several notable transportation, energy and federal government projects and the continued rapid expansion of staff. 

“We are pleased to be recognized as one of the regions fastest growing companies as it affirms our focus on the success of our clients in making their vision a reality,” said David Martin, PE, Chief Operating Officer of LDG. “As we initiate our next strategic plan, the rapid growth in our Federal and Retail markets will propel LDG to a national level allowing for career growth opportunities for our employee-owners.”
