Every year The YGS Group heads to the Inc. 500|5000 conference to meet and interact with the list’s honorees—the fastest-growing privately held companies in America. Once again the air was electric at the big event in Washington, D.C. in October, and the hallways filled with happy entrepreneurs ready to pull out their credit cards. This year honorees bought social media toolkits comprised of electronic reprints and logo licenses, as well as reprints, framed awards, and posters.
We were in pretty good company, too. Our booth was strategically placed between Dell and Google. (Hey, not bad, YGS!) Three Content Management managers including the vice president, Kelly Winkler; account manager for Inc.,Jenny Kintner; and sales manager, Anne Groff, staffed this year’s booth. In addition, three YGS Content Management account representatives—Brad Hairhoger, Lindsay Wilson and Nicole Goodermuth—sold Inc. products and ran the Inc. Storefront to ensure accurate sales records. And it wouldn’t have been an Inc. 500|5000 conference without Charlie Calta and Erica Montgomery walking the Gaylord halls.
Thanks to all of the stellar YGS associates, we are set to have our best year of Inc.sales yet. Many thanks to everyone who has helped to make this endeavor a success!
