The Aspire Group’s Amazing Growth Recognized with a 2013 Pacesetter Award
May 8, 2013
The Atlanta Business Chronicle has recognized The Aspire Group as the 9th fastest growing company in the Atlanta region. Chairman and CEO, Dr. Bernie Mullin and Mia Ramer, Marketing & Operations Coordinator of The Aspire Group accepted this prestigious award.
The Atlanta Business Chronicle Pacesetter Awards recognizes the 100 fastest growing companies in the Atlanta region. Submissions for the awards are measured based on a weighted average growth index which included revenue and employee growth from 2010-2012. The Aspire Group increased company revenue by 440% and increased employees by 294% and had a weighted average growth index of 104% during that period. The Aspire Group now has over 220 full-time employees working in the U.S., Canada and the U.K.
“The biggest contributing factor to our year-on-year growth as a company has been, and will always be, our unparalleled commitment to our client partners and our staff. These factors have really set us apart from our competitors, with 100% client retention and 94% Manager retention over this period. These are unprecedented numbers in the direct marketing, phone sales and service industry segment,” stated Aspire’s Chairman and CEO, Bernie Mullin.
“It has been such a wonderful experience to watch The Aspire Group grow into its global leadership position in outsourced ticket marketing, ticket sales and ticket service since the first Fan Relationship Management Center became operational at Georgia Tech in July 2009. The number of jobs that have been created since then in Atlanta alone, during the harshest economic downturn our generation has experienced, exceeds 50 full-time positions and I know Aspire will continue to grow as we expand our partnership at Georgia Tech, and add even more remote sales partnerships out of our National Sales Center in West Midtown.”
