ClearTrust Stock Transfer Agent is Honored as a 2015 USF Fast 56 Award Recipient

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - May 21, 2015) - ClearTrust, LLC, a leading stock transfer agent serving growth companies and community banks, was honored for the second year in a row by the University of South Florida (USF) Alumni Association as a member of USF Fast 56 -- the fastest growing USF alumni owned or led businesses in the world.

ClearTrust helps businesses and their shareholders navigate the securities industry through robust shareholder record-keeping and corporate governance services. ClearTrust was one of 56 USF Bull owned or led businesses inducted into the 2015 Fast 56 by USF System President Judy Genshaft and Alumni Association Board of Directors Chair Mike Griffin.

"It is an honor for ClearTrust to again be recognized by the University of South Florida for the growth of our business," said Kara Kennedy, a graduate of USF. "This wouldn't be possible without our tireless, dedicated team and loyal clients, to whom we are immensely grateful. This achievement is not ours, but theirs."

To be considered for the Fast 56 program, an organization must have been in business for at least three years, have revenues of $250,000 or more for the most recent 12-month period, and be owned or led by a University of South Florida alumnus.

The 2015 Fast 56 companies were ranked by percentage of cumulative annual growth in revenue, as documented by Cherry Bekaert LLP, 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.

"Hundreds of companies received nominations for the 2015 USF Fast 56," said USF Alumni Association Executive Director Bill McCausland. "We are proud to recognize ClearTrust for being among the world's fastest growing USF Bull-led businesses."
