4th annual list recognizes 215 private companies putting purpose ahead of profit. 

Frederick, Md. (December 5, 2023) – Edgewater Federal Solutions, Inc. (Edgewater) has been named to the Inc. 2023 Best in Business list in the IT Management category. This category highlights companies whose primary business is the management of software, servers, printers, security, and more. Inc.’s Best in Business Awards honor companies that have made an extraordinary impact in their fields and on society. 

“What an honor it is to be named Best in Business for our core services. This recognition stands out because it’s not just based on revenue, but rather on the positive impact Edgewater has. We strive to continuously develop innovative solutions to help our customers meet their mission-oriented goals, while also supporting the communities where our teams live and work,” stated Dave Yockman, CEO of Edgewater. 

The list, which can be found in the Winter issue of Inc. magazine (on newsstands December 12), recognizes the most dynamic companies of all sizes and industries that have had an outstanding influence on their communities, their industries, the environment, or society as a whole. 

Eric Hagerman, Special Projects Editor at Inc., says, “Being named to the Best in Business list is a rare and special honor. These honorees demonstrate the foresight, caring, and dedication to prioritize positive impact—impact on their community, on their industry and the environment, and even on society as a whole.” 

Rather than relying on quantitative criteria tied to sales or funding, Inc.’s editors reviewed the companies’ achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. They then selected honorees in 70 different categories – from advertising to sustainability to retail, and more – and in age-based, revenue-based, size-based, and impact- based categories. The applicant pool was extremely competitive – a huge success for the 215 honored in the list’s fourth year. Honorees for general excellence across various industries and categories are featured online at inc.com/best-in-business.
