La Crosse, WI – November 28, 2012 – Michaels Energy was named a “Hot Firm” on The Zweig Letter 2012 Hot Firm List.  Winners were announced at The Zweig Letter Hot Firm black tie dinner and awards ceremony in Aspen, Colorado last month.

The Zweig Letter 2012 Hot Firm List recognizes the 100 fastest-growing architecture, engineering, planning and environmental consulting firms in the United States and Canada. These firms have outperformed the economy and competitors to become leaders in their chosen fields.

“I’ve watched the Hot Firm announcements from Zweig for many years, and admired those who were able to achieve the success necessary to be named to the list,” said company President, Dave Waffenschmidt. “It’s rewarding for Michaels to now be part of that prestigious group.”
