Ringing the bell
May 16th, 2016
On May 4th, during Small Business Week, Chase Bank and the New York Stock Exchange chose SPEAR Physical Therapy as one of a few small businesses to be recognized for its success. Leaders of SPEAR could not contain their excitement as they got the opportunity to ring the opening bell on Wall Street! “It was an incredible feeling to be on the floor of the exchange and ringing the bell was a highlight of my career that I will never forget,” said SPEAR President, Dan Rootenberg. We are thrilled to be recognized for SPEAR’s continued success as a small business. Receiving this honor validates our ongoing commitment to our patients, as well as recognizing the positive impact we’ve had on the NYC community at large. Our team constantly spends our off-hours raising money for local charities and volunteering at NYC events. These activities are a huge part of our success and employee happiness, and our team greatly appreciates being honored for our #NYCSPEARIT!
