Kahua Named to Fastest Growing Companies in Georgia

Georgia Fast 40

Georgia Fast 40 Ranks Construction Management Software #9 

The Atlanta Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) announced the rankings of the 2023 Georgia Fast 40, recognizing the top 40 fastest-growing companies in upper and lower markets in Georgia.   

Kahua – which offers a leading-edge construction project management information system – was honored at #9 out of 20 companies in the lower middle-market with revenue between $15 million and $60 million annually.  

Companies honored this year exemplify ACG’s focus on driving middle-market growth that demonstrate the strength and significance of this sector in Georgia, according to Meg Williams, executive director of the ACG’s Atlanta chapter.   

“Like so many successful high-tech companies, we brought a superior solution to solve an important problem. Productivity of the construction sector has a big societal/environmental impact, and bringing a superior solution and technology to the industry makes an impact,” said Kahua CFO Tom Barham.   

“We are obsessed with the success of our customers. If our customers are outrageously successful, then we will succeed as a company.”  

Applicants were required to submit three years of verifiable revenue and employment growth records, which were validated by the national accounting firm and founding Diamond sponsor,  

Cherry Bekaert LLP. An ACG Committee evaluated each company and conducted in-person interviews with all qualified applicants.   

All companies on the list are for-profit and headquartered in Georgia. These firms reported 2022 year-end revenues ranging from $15 to $500 million.   

“These 40+ companies represent almost 10,000 new jobs and over 2.6 billion dollars in revenue growth over the last three years,” said Brooks Morris of the Georgia Fast 40 Awards and principal with Cresa.   

“In speaking with many of the CEOs, the supportive business environment and accessibility of capital are contributors to growth. By far the biggest challenge is the tightness of the labor market. We are proud to honor these companies.”
