GSMI named to Inc. Magazine’s list of Top Education Providers and SDBJ’s 100 Fastest Growing Companies
In Inc. Magazine’s annual list of the 5000 most rapidly growing businesses, Global Strategic Management Institute was ranked 16th among education providers and 1078th out of 5000 overall for percent increase in revenue. In addition, the San Diego Business Journal listed GSMI as the 26th in their list of the 100 fastest growing private companies in San Diego.
Founded in San Diego, California in 2008 by Luke Vinci and Byron Mignanelli, GSMI set out to provide an intimate and educational conference experience that focused specifically on executive education. Through their efforts working to expand while continuing to provide quality conferences and trainings, GSMI has expanded from the small two person start up, adding employees and dramatically increasing revenue as the company has grown.
This is GSMI’s third consecutive year in a row on the San Diego Business Journal’s list of the “Top 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies” and the first time on the Inc. 5000 list, and the company shows no signs of slowing. “We’re excited about our fantastic team of professionals and achievements. Our strategy is focused on offering best-in-class Conferences, Trainings and innovative Learning products for all professionals,” said Mignanelli.
Especially significant for the executive education company is the listing as 16th in the Education Provider category of Inc. Magazine’s listings. GSMI has significantly contributed to the executive education landscape with flagship event series like the Social Media Strategies Summit, which is now held in several major cities both in the U.S. and abroad. Also contributing to the rapid growth are legacy events like the Governance Risk and Compliance Summit now entering its ninth installment this fall in Chicago, as well as new conferences like the Mobile Marketing Strategies Summit and the Mobile Web DevCon. These events are key in paving the way for future successes in the field.
“We’re pleased to accept the 16th ranking for Fastest Growing Education Provider in America, but we look to set our goals higher and continually improve as a company so that we may help our customers achieve their professional career objectives and grow their organizations,” said Mignanelli.
As 2013 begins to wind down, GSMI is looking forward to a strong finish with upcoming events like the Social Media Strategies Summits in London and San Francisco as well as the upcoming Mobile Marketing Strategies Summit in Boston to carry the company through the end of the year and hopefully into the top level of rankings once again for 2014.
