“We are honored, humbled, and extremely pleased to be named to the 2018 Grant Thornton South Carolina 100™ list,” said Alpha Genesis President and CEO Dr. Greg Westergaard. “When Alpha Genesis filed corporation documents to form a South Carolina-based business entity a decade and a half ago we dreamed that we would experience continuous growth and remain successful over such an extended period of time, and this award shows than these dreams have come true. Our partnerships with the nearby Towns of Yemassee and Beaufort have been incredibly rewarding and productive and this recognition further demonstrates our prominence among South Carolina businesses and reaffirms our commitment to the Low Country community. We are proud to be recognized as one of the most innovative, top-performing businesses in the great Palmetto State.”
