NEW BERLIN, Wis. — Batzner Services has been named a 2013 Future 50 company by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce’s Council of Small Business Executives (COSBE).

The Future 50 program, now in its 26th year, recognizes privately-owned companies in the seven-county Milwaukee region that have been in business for at least three years and have shown significant revenue and employment growth.

This year, Batzner Services is a recipient of the Master Mettle Award, which recognizes the company’s third time as a Future 50 Award winner.  Batzner was also named to the Future 50 in 2011 and 2010.  “We are both proud and humbled to be part of such a prestigious list of local companies for a third time,” said Jerry Batzner, Batzner Services President and CEO.

 “It is always encouraging to see such a strong group of applicants and winners in this program each year.  These companies truly represent the future of our region,” said Mary Steinbrecher, executive director of COSBE.

The Future 50 companies will be honored at an awards luncheon on Thursday, September 19, from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm at The Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee.  The luncheon will be hosted by the MMAC, COSBE and BizTimes Media.

“We look forward to honoring these fast-growing companies and learning more about the best practices that are driving their growth,” said Dan Meyer, publisher of BizTimes Milwaukee.
