News CESO Continues to Rise in Industry Rankings
CESO, a leader in architecture and engineering services, has continued a growth and market presence expansion pattern, moving up in both Engineering News-Record (ENR) and VMSD’s annual industry rankings. The organization jumped from 404 (2020) to 299 (2021) on ENR's Top 500 Design Firms, moved from 15 (2020) to 6 (2021) on the VMSD Retail Design Firm Resource Guide, and rose from 252 (2020) to 142 (2021) on Architectural Record's Top 300 List. This rise in rankings is directly related to the dedication demonstrated by each team member, from the cultivation of business development efforts through the successful completion of projects.
“This year’s ENR and VMSD rankings demonstrate how our strategic vision for the business continues to position CESO for success,” said Steven Olson, President. “We remain committed to providing expertise, innovation, and exceptional service to our clients and the communities we serve.”
