Great Northern ranked #38 on the list of the 75 largest private companies in Wisconsin, based on sales revenue.
The list is compiled by Deloitte. This marks the first year Great Northern has appeared on the list. Deloitte’s annual Wisconsin 75 list salutes the largest privately held Wisconsin-based companies. These companies play a key role in the state’s economy. Wisconsin 75 award winners are selected based on annual sales revenue.
“The Wisconsin 75 list recognizes the important role private companies play in the local economy. Comprised of some of the state’s most recognizable brands and exciting emerging companies, these organizations demonstrate incredible leadership and when called upon, adapt to help guide our state through various obstacles,” said Scott Wrobbel, US central region leader and Wisconsin managing partner of Deloitte LLP.
To be eligible for Deloitte’s Wisconsin 75 recognition, companies must have a majority ownership by an individual(s), family, employee stock ownership plan, or private equity firm. Public companies are eligible when greater than 50 percent of the value or vote of the shares are owned by individuals, family, an employee stock ownership plan, or private equity. Additionally, companies must have annual sales revenue of at least USD 50,000. The Wisconsin 75 excludes cooperatives and accounting, tax, legal, and consulting service companies.
