The Appleton Group LLC is the proud recipient of The 2006 Rising Star Award. The award was presented to The Appleton Group at the Fox Cities Chamber Small Business lunch. “Being recognized by the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce and Industry is humbling, but we’re just getting started,” said Mark Scheffler, Senior Portfolio Manager and Founder of The Appleton Group.

Scheffler credits the award to the Appleton Group’s uniqueness and innovation in managing clients’ assets. “Our star is indeed rising, and we invite investors throughout northeast Wisconsin to use us as a significant portion of their investment portfolio,” he said.

The Appleton Group competed against ten other companies in the Fox Cities area. The criteria for the award include firm size, location, history, uniqueness, and community involvement. The award is given to those companies that have gotten off to a strong start and exhibit the potential for growing into a prosperous enterprise in the future.

The Appleton Group, with only seven employees, has quadrupled their wealth management offerings to include the Appleton Group Portfolios, The Appleton Group Composites, The Appleton Group 401(k), and a proprietary mutual fund.
