KMRD Partners Receives University of Delaware Blue Hen 17&43 Award for Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Growth

Recognizing KMRD Partners for the second consecutive year, the Blue Hen 17&43 Awards build on the University of Delaware’s long tradition of leadership, innovation and entrepreneurship.

WARRINGTON, PA, November 27, 2018 — KMRD Partners, Inc. (KMRD), an award-winning provider of risk management, insurance brokerage, and human capital solutions, is proud to announce it has been recognized with University of Delaware’s (UofD) Blue Hen 17&43 Award.

For the second year in a row, KMRD was one of 43 companies to receive the Fastest Growing Companies honor after a panel comprised of UD Horn Entrepreneurship and Lerner College personnel, accomplished entrepreneurs and business leaders, ranked nominees based on innovativeness, milestone accomplishments, current and future revenues, job creation, and social impact.

“KMRD has experienced phenomenal growth by continuing to focus on hiring talented people and delivering the best service to our clients,” said Co-Founder and Principal, Bob Dietzel. “We are truly honored to be named a Blue Hen 17&43 recipient for a second year in a row, and want to thank our hard-working employees, our dedicated partners and our loyal customers for their contributions to our success.”

“Our growth over the past few years has been game changing — we’ve added new service lines, expanded our reach into new markets, and staffed up to improve our ability to service our clients,” says Kevin McPoyle, Co-Founder and President of KMRD. “We’re honored to be recognized for the second time as a Blue Hen 17&43 award winner, a testament to the women and men of KMRD who share in a commitment to serve our clients around the globe.”

In addition to being recognized by Blue Hen 17&43 as fastest growing alumni business, KMRD has recently earned placement as Best Insurance Agency to Work For by Insurance Journal. Previously, the company was selected as the winner of the 2017 Societas Award for Responsible Corporate Conduct. KMRD is a 5-time honoree on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing companies.

Recognizing successful ventures, the Blue Hen 17&43 Awards builds on UofD’s long tradition of leadership, innovation and entrepreneurship by honoring the 17 most promising new ventures and 43 fastest growing companies founded, owned or led by its students and alumni. The prestigious recognition is a collaboration of the university’s Horn Entrepreneurship and Alfred Lerner College of Business & Economics.

Only businesses that operate in a manner consistent with the guiding principles of the University of Delaware – and those able to fulfill the selection criteria – were eligible for Blue Hen 17&43 Award consideration.

For each nominated company, Horn Entrepreneurship and Lerner College personnel calculated the compounded annual growth rate based on revenues for the three most recent fiscal years. Companies were ranked from highest to lowest, and the top 43 were selected for award recognition. Fastest growing companies experienced growth rates in excess of 10 percent per year over the last three years and generated at least $1 million in annual revenue.

The Blue Hen 17 & 43 is a project of UD’s Horn Entrepreneurship and the Alfred Lerner College of Business & Economics. For more about the award, visit
