Aspen Grove honored

Aspen Grove and Tri-County Health have partnered to offer wellness programs throughout the year for the nearly 600 employees of the shopping center at Mineral and Santa Fe in Littleton.

According to a news release, that collaboration has earned the shopping center certification as a Healthy Workplace by Health Links, a mentoring program that champions health and safety at work.

“Being a partner with Health Links has inspired us to find ways to celebrate success without sugary treats, or walk the center with our retailers versus setting up meetings in a conference room,” Stacey Ronczy, Aspen Grove general manager, said in the news release. “We appreciate the recognition as a certified health partner and are striving to continue to grow the programs to support the employees of the shopping center.”

Led by Daniel Cook, CFP, AIF, the firm made the list by posting 65 percent growth over the past three years, according to a news release. This is the second time Summit has made the list, having also reached it in 2017.

The Inc. Magazine list represents a look at the most successful companies in the American economy’s independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“This signal of our growth is very important to us for a couple of reasons.” Summit Wealth Group CEO Randy Morris said in the release. “First, it is a validation of the trust that our clients have placed in us. Secondly, it is evidence of the strength of our team and their commitment to place the needs of our clients first. As we help our clients navigate the path to a better, more secure future, we appreciate their trust and confidence. It’s what has enabled us to reach this distinction with Inc. Magazine.”
