Now in its fifth year, the award, sponsored by Deloitte* Private and The Wall Street Journal, recognizes the achievements of U.S. private companies and the successes of their management teams.

SanMar has been a family-owned business since its founding in 1971 and is currently managed by the third generation of the Lott family.
