The Remi Group was awarded and honored with a position on the Inc. 5000 for being one of the country's fastest growing privately-held companies presented by Inc. magazine.
Brent Howison, President of The Remi Group, attended the sixth annual Inc. 500|5000 Conference & Award Ceremony in Phoenix, AZ and on behalf of the company, accepted the 2012 Inc. 5000 Award for being one of the country's fastest growing privately held companies. In a stagnant economic environment, winning such an exclusive award is quite an honor because The Remi Group showed significant growth through three of the toughest economic years in history. The company joins Yelp, Chobani, Facebook, Quality Logo Products, and Planet Fitness among other prominent brands featured on this year's list.
It was a corporate star-studded event as some of the most successful business minds gathered together to celebrate their enormous accomplishments. Brian Halligan, Founder & CEO of Hubspot, Scott Harrison, Founder & CEO of charity : water, Bert Jacobs, Co-founder & Chief Executive Optimist of Life is Good, and Guy Kawasaki, Founding Partner of Garage Technology Ventures and Author of Enchantment: The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds, and Actions are just to name a few of the speakers that Brent had the pleasure of hearing at the conference.
Brent returned to Charlotte, NC ready to implement several of the new ideas he took away from the inspiring keynote speakers. "It's a testament to the hard work of our people and loyalty of our customers to be honored as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in America. The energy and passion among the business owners at the conference was truly inspiring and I'm excited to continue the growth and success of this organization well into the future."
