ATLANTA, GA – The Aspire Group (Aspire) has been recognized as one of the 2023 Pacesetter Award winners by The Atlanta Business Chronicle. The prestigious Pacesetter distinction is given to the 100 fastest-growing privately owned companies in the Atlanta area. To qualify, a company must show two-year revenue growth of at least 50%. This marks the third Pacesetter recognition for Aspire.

Aspire Chairman and Founder, Bernie Mullin, and President and CEO, Bill Fagan, accepted the award.

“For an agency such as The Aspire Group whose primary business is Ticket Marketing, Sales, and Service to come rocketing out of COVID so strongly is deeply satisfying,” said Aspire Founder and Chairman, Dr. Bernie Mullin. “For a company with no tickets to sell for almost two full seasons to have grown back to having more client partners and almost as many employees as we had Pre COVID, is an amazing achievement and great credit to our CEO Bill Fagan, and everyone on our staff”.
