CTL Named to Inc.’s 2023 Best in Business List in Education

The annual list recognizes 215 private companies putting purpose ahead of profit

PORTLAND, Ore., Dec. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — CTL, a global ChromeOS computing solution leader for education and enterprise, has been named to the Inc. 2023 Best in Business list in the Education category. Inc.’s Best in Business Awards honor companies that have made an extraordinary impact in their fields and on society.    

“We are thrilled to be included on this prestigious list of exceptional companies as recognized by one of the premier business publications in the world,” noted CTL’s President and CEO, Erik Stromquist. “It’s a testament to our great people, who work tirelessly every day to ensure our EdTech customers possess the devices, services, and support they need for their students and teachers to succeed. We continue on our mission of empowering the education industry with cloud-based computing solutions for seamless connectivity and the infinite potential of online learning.”

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. They 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.
