Foundation Financial Group, helmed by CEO Mark W. Boyer (pictured), recently earned a 2011 Atlanta Pacesetter Award.

Out of the 8,600 Atlanta businesses that competed for the awards, Foundation Financial was ranked as the 15th fastest-growing company. The company also earned the top spot in its core category, placing above every other financial services or mortgage lending business on the list.

From 2008 to 2010, Foundation Financial saw its companywide revenues grow 102%. In 2010, the company added 100 employees and expanded into its 33rd state. It also opened its sixth U.S. regional center in Rochester, N.Y.

“Foundation Financial Group would not have achieved this tremendous growth without the hard work and dedication of every employee, which made this achievement possible despite the most challenging economic period in recent history,” Boyer says. “This award is a testament to the blue-collar work ethic our employees demonstrate every day, as they help families achieve financial success.”
