Snapshot: Beacon Communications is a systems integrator specializing in communication systems for institutions such as K-12 schools, health care and government facilities.

Leadership: Michael Hester has been managing partner of the Denver company since 1998, the year it was founded. The company grew 7 percent in 2011 and is projected to grow 36 percent this year.

Work force: The company employed 48 full-time and four part-time employees at the end of 2011. It expects to expand to 65 full-time and six part-time workers this year.

Pivotal moment: After the death of a salesman who accounted for 95 percent of sales, Beacon needed to reinvent itself. It now generates 70 percent of its business from health-care sales.

Technological edge: Beacon has funded and supported the research and development efforts of a separate company owned by its technical-services manager in exchange for exclusive marketing rights of the health-care related technology.

Company culture: Beacon’s core values – customer service, communication, teamwork and integrity – were chosen by everyone in the company. Charitable work includes donating money and services to Project Angel Heart.
