Scout Boats receives business award in South Carolina

Publish date:

Scout Boats has been named a 2017 Roaring Twenties award recipient — one of the 20 best-performing large companies in South Carolina — for the fourth year in a row.

Scout secured the eighth-place spot. The statewide honor is presented annually by SC Biz News and recognizes South Carolina’s 20 best-performing small and 20 best-performing large companies, based on dollar and percentage increases in revenue from the previous year.

A profile of Scout Boats will be published in the winter issue of SCBIZ magazine. All winners were honored on Thursday at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Columbia, S.C.

“This is a prestigious statewide award, and we’re humbled that we were selected as one of the top 20 large companies for a fourth year in a row,” Scout CEO and founder Steve Potts said in a statement. “This has been quite an accomplishment for Scout, as I’ve been told few companies make it back-to-back years, much less four consecutive years, considering thousands of nominations and growing every year.”

To qualify for the Roaring Twenties designation, companies must have a physical presence in South Carolina and be a for-profit entity or a nonprofit organization, except for government entities and charitable organizations. Those types of nonprofits are not eligible.
