ATLANTA, GA – March 13, 2017 – The University of South Florida (USF) Alumni Association will honor the 2017 USF Fast 56 – the fastest growing USF alumni-owned or -led businesses in the world – on Friday, April 28, in the Marshall Student Center Ballroom and Oval Theater at USF Tampa by USF System President Judy Genshaft and USF Alumni Association Board of Directors Chair Jim Harvey.

“We’re proud to recognize Red Rook as one of the 56 fastest growing USF Bull-led businesses in the world,” said USF Alumni Association Executive Director Bill McCausland.  “We look forward to celebrating on April 28th, when we’ll count down to the No. 1 Fast 56 business.”

The 2017 USF Fast 56 companies were ranked by percentage of cumulative annual growth in revenue, as documented by Cherry Bekaert, a public accounting firm based in Tampa. Fifty-six USF alumni owned or led businesses were selected as recipients, in recognition of the year USF was founded, 1956.

“This is an honor,” said alumnus Adam DiMuzio.  “In my time at USF, and beyond in the Tampa business community, I’ve met many business leaders with outstanding organizations. It is amazing to be included among them. This award is a testament to everyone at Red Rook and our tenant to ‘Put in more than you take out.’ Our goal is to create the best solutions for the markets we serve.”

DiMuzio graduated from USF with his Masters of Business Administration in Finance and Entrepreneurship in 2009.  His commitment to business growth doesn’t end with Red Rook; he is heavily involved in the Tampa Bay Business Owners group, where he’s consulted with Tampa-based companies on best practices and growth strategy. He’s also been featured as a speaker at the organization’s “Main Event” meeting twice. Adam has also been a guest on “That Business Show” on WHNZ Tampa multiple times over the past year, discussing business concepts and how they relate to company culture and success.

“One thing I gained at USF was a love of continuing education, no matter the source,” continued DiMuzio. “It’s something I still practice. Helping other business leaders tackle challenges is a treasure trove of educational experience. How would I handle something? How did they – and what was the result? What can I bring back to Red Rook to help achieve our mission?”

Red Rook has also been recognized among the Inc. 5000 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S., and recently announced partnership with Magento Commerce, in addition to serving on the Partner Advisory Board for NCR Counterpoint.
