TAMPA, FL., July 29th. 2021 — Behavioral Consulting of Tampa Bay (BCOTB), a Tampa Bay Community Organization, has ranked 49th in the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s ‘Fast 50’ in the Tampa Bay area for 2021. Published each year, the list ranks the area’s top fasting growing, privately owned companies.
This is the seventh year BCOTB has been included on the list.
Founded in 2003 by Kelley Prince, M.A., BCBA, BCOTB has become a leader in pediatric Autism therapy (ABA therapy), reaching many significant milestones, including, revenue growth of 85%, the creation of more than 80 jobs and the opening and expansion of four clinic locations in the Tampa Bay area. The companies sustained growth is directly linked to the results-oriented programs focused on a dedicated effort for excellent services.
One of BCOTB’s greatest achievements will be forever bookmarked by the global pandemic and COVID-19. The ability to adapt and get creative in an effort to maintain medically necessary Autism therapies, while mitigating risks and keeping team members, clients, and caregivers safe during unprecedented times, not only demonstrates that BCOTB is a strong organization, but that the team is truly dedicated to the needs of its clients.
‘The most exciting thing to happen at BCOTB last year is that my team was able to come together during a global pandemic and continue to safely provide medically necessary services to our clients. Not only did BCOTB continue to provide our high-quality ABA services, but we were able to continue to increase revenue from the previous year and increase the number of employees on our payroll. The team stepped up in unprecedented times and exceeded all expectations, which was truly amazing.’ Kelley Prince, Founder/Owner
Known for its comprehensive Child Advancement Track, a program designed to address the individual needs of each child throughout their development, BCOTB is the premier in-clinic ABA therapy provider for children from the ages of 18 months of age to 10 years old. Each of the Child Advancement Track programs targets skills that are needed to support a child’s success in other environments that they spend the most time in, whether that is play based instruction, an academic setting, or a combination of both.
Companies named to the “Fast 50” list are privately held, locally-owned, headquartered in the Tampa Bay area, and have achieved substantially above-market consecutive annual revenue growth from 2018 to 2020. In addition, all nominated companies must submit financial disclosure data that is verified by an independent auditor retained by the Tampa Bay Business Journal.
