CHICAGO – March 6, 2024 — AHEAD, a leading national provider of cloud, data and platform engineering solutions, today announced that CDI, a company acquired by AHEAD in February 2024, has been named one of the 2024 Best Companies to Work For In New York by The New York State Council of the Society of Human Resources Management, Best Companies Group, and Rochester Business Journal. 

Best Companies to Work for in New York is a research-driven program that examines a company’s practices, programs and benefits and surveys its employees for their perspectives. Winners are determined through an evaluation of workplace policies, practices and demographics, along with a measurement of employee experience. 

AHEAD’s acquisition of New York-based CDI added a strong Northeastern U.S. presence, closing a gap in AHEAD’s already expansive national coverage. Mutual focus on growth, cohesive cultures, and a shared uncompromising approach to client success were key factors in the decision to combine.  

AHEAD has received accolades nationally and across more than seven markets over the past year, being named a National Top Workplace, Top Regional Workplace, and a winner of multiple Culture Excellence Awards. 

“Congratulations to the New York team for their recognition as a Best Company to Work For. AHEAD values employee experience—and that includes employees who join the AHEAD team through acquisition, like those from CDI,” said Kristin Supancich, chief people officer at AHEAD. “A shared emphasis on culture and employee experience are what make AHEAD and CDI a great combination.” 

“The 2024 Best Companies to Work for in New York demonstrate the importance of employees feeling appreciated, engaged and successful. These businesses know that magic formula that creates success in all areas of their organizations,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, managing director, BridgeTower Media/Rochester Business Journal. “We are pleased to join our partners, the New York State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management and the Best Companies Group, in honoring these inspirational businesses.
