CEA, the leading global marketplace for quality study abroad programs for university and college students in the U.S. and Canada, received recognition on May 29th, 2008 at an event hosted by Arizona Business Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in Arizona. The 1st Annual AZ Fast 15 Awards were given to the top 15 companies in Arizona based upon substantial revenue growth, substantial growth in number of employees, substantial gains in market share, outstanding growth in a growing industry and overall company performance.
CEA, a leading study abroad provider, has experienced considerable growth over the past three years, nearly doubling both student enrollment and number of employees since 2004 and growing from a 12 million dollar company to a 30 million dollar company in that same timeframe.
Brian Boubek, Chairman & CEO of CEA, congratulated his staff saying, “As a leading global education company, we help students to grow academically, personally and professionally with industry leading service and support. It's not any one given person, department or program who exemplifies this spirit rather it's the collective energy of our entire team that accomplishes this time and time again. From headquarters to the delivery of our courses and services in more than 26 cities worldwide - we could not have been this successful without the synergy your collective efforts produce.”
For more than 18 years, Arizona Business Magazine has been Arizona’s leading business publication, whose readers rely on valuable business tools to help them run their organizations better. Each issue provides comprehensive coverage of the city, regional and statewide business interests.
