ADVICE FROM TOP EXECUTIVES

My advice is to follow a merit-based philosophy driven by two important mandates: 1) Do right by the customer, and 2) Do right by the company’s reputation. While this may not be the fastest way to build a company, it’s the best way to match passion and drive with integrity, which leads to long-term sustainability as the ultimate reward for doing what’s right for the long run. At the end of the day, revenue is just revenue, but reputation becomes the lifeblood of future success. Today, iCIMS is now the second-largest provider of talent acquisition software in the United States for U.S. companies with 100 or more employees.
Colin Day, President and Chief Executive Officer – iCIMS, Inc.

Private companies can drive sustainable growth over time by focusing on improvements in four key areas. The first is developing and communicating a clear vision that aligns directly with the target market on which your company and/or product is focused. The best way to do this is to take an “outside-in” approach, spending a great deal of time truly understanding the key pain points and needs of your target market. Once you understand those needs, you can align your product management and engineering resources tightly around building a product that solves these problems, and your sales and marketing resources around messaging that resonates in market. Secondly, hire and develop great people with a passion for delivering the solution you’ve outlined in your vision. No matter what you do as a company, your success or failure stems from the quality of people you have at your side to help you execute your vision. The third is to deliver clear communication, ensuring that each and every person understands and retains the vision, direction and focus of the company. Finally, sustained growth requires a balance of execution capabilities, both in terms of product maturity and organizational performance with sales/marketing efforts. Firm alignment of the sales/marketing investment with execution capability will yield effective and efficient growth in the long run of a company. This has been a key factor in Marathon profitably growing our top line by over four times in the last six years.
Chris Sullens, President and CEO – Marathon Data Systems

Invest in digital inbound marketing, where you see the highest ROI. Roll 7-15% of gross monthly sales back into your monthly marketing budget. This will propel continual growth. I think many companies fail to continually invest enough in targeted marketing which ultimately impedes growth.
JB and Joe Kellogg, CEO’s, Founding Partners – Madwire

Build a strong team to support you.
Ben Lanius, Chief Executive Officer – HighPoint Global

To quickly realize that you may be smart, but long-term growth and success requires hiring smarter people.
Hal Blackman, President and CEO – IST Management Services

Be confident but never arrogant, arrogance in management will kill growth. Do not force a culture upon a company, allow it to come from the people; a successfully growing company should have a culture that does not mirror the CEO or Founders’ personalities or beliefs, but be an accumulation of the staff that powers the growth of the company.
Brendan Smith, CEO & Founder – Motive Interactive

Resist the urge to be an island. As proud as I am of the work we have done and our success in looking ahead, I can’t tell you we did it on our own. I am in constant contact with our stakeholders, asking existing clients, prospects, peers, partners, employee and industry experts about their concerns, where they see possibilities, and what they need the most help with. You can invent the best gadget in the world, but nobody will buy it if it doesn’t solve a real problem. It starts with serving a niche that has longevity. In our case, it is helping find, accelerate and close revenue for our clients, but there are infinite possibilities depending on individual levels of expertise and interest. The most fundamental needs are things that never change. No matter how much products, companies, services, or consumers change, sales will always be the engine that drives growth. Once you find that niche, it’s all about taking that deep dive and finding out what’s important to all the involved stakeholders and how that is changing over time. Also, the old adage is true: Surround yourself with people who are smarter than you are. There’s no way N3 could do what it does without our brilliant management, business development, and support teams.
Jeff Laue, Co-Founder + CEO – N3

There are two very important pieces of advice that I’d like to share. First, hire rock stars. You need the best people in your industry if you want to succeed. Second, help those key players grow to their full potential. If you have the right players playing at their A game, you’re company will grow and succeed.
Jeffrey Smith, Chief Executive Officer – Alliance Health, LLC

  1. Delegate work and allow for autonomy: As a company grows, a good leader must allow employees to own aspects of the business that may have previously been under the CEO’s purview. This is because CEO’s have too many high-value daily tasks to complete and cannot afford to handle all of the responsibilities that she may have owned when the company was smaller. It is key that the CEO delegate all work that can be handled by the larger team and that the CEO allow for those employees to feel ownership over the task.
  2. Delegate work, not facetime with employees: As noted above, it’s crucial that CEO’s delegate work wherever possible so as to ensure that the CEO is owning the most high-value tasks. However, it is absolutely crucial that delegating responsibility never become an excuse for a CEO losing touch with her employees. Although it may seem trivial, maintaining interactions with employees is crucial for company culture.
  3. Don’t allow the pursuit of new business to sabotage current business: During the growth phase of a company, leaders and employees can become too focused on acquiring new business at the expense of maintaining current business. It’s obviously crucial to grow by acquiring new customers, but service to one’s current customers can never be compromised, as such losses have a profound negative impact on growth. One way to achieve this balance is to silo those who are responsible for new business versus those who are responsible for maintaining current business.

Growth, technology specifically, comes from innovation and having a product or service that solves a need. It also disrupts a stagnant market. When we started PureCars and launched SmartAdvertising- it came when dealer’s were still spending billions on traditional advertising when consumer behavior was changing quickly.
Jeremy Anspach, Chief Executive Officer – PureCars

Vertex credits our success to constant commitment to core values that drives everything we do. These include exercising an exceptional degree of responsiveness, implementing value-added solutions every day and fostering an entrepreneurial spirit to attract and maintain top talent to Vertex.
William McConnell, Chief Executive Officer – The Vertex Companies, Inc.

Maintaining focus is extremely important when you’re leading an organization, and it’s a quality that will help a CEO propel his or her organization toward growth. As our Senior Advisor and former COO of Leo Burnett, Jack Kraft says, “Success is about doing the right things right.” As a business leader, many potential opportunities will come your way and having the discipline to say no to good ideas will ensure you don’t lose sight of greatness. Keeping focus in those situations is what truly distinguishes a great leader, and when you’re doing the right things right, success will follow.
Jon Morris, Founder and CEO – Rise Interactive

I would start with telling them to do what you love, if you don’t, you will not last long. Becoming a business owner takes countless hours and 7 days a week type attitude, if you’re not passionate about what you’re in business to do, you will lose interest and in the end, lose money. I would then go into the traits that had been spoke on in the questions above as: Positive Attitude: I feel a motivated team that are all working towards the continued success of the company is an absolute MUST! It is important to buy lunch for the team, and talk about their life or family from time to time. Knowing that we are all in this together and work 8-10 hours a day. Ability to Inspire: Weekly meetings, daily emails or off the cuff team talks is how I continue to place inspiration into my team. The meetings are to make sure my team sees the same vision of the successes I do. I place weekly bonus items or daily bonus features into the mix to keep it all fresh and new. Communication: Placing every last thought you have in terms of your business and what is expected on paper is a very important habit to form. Being able to clearly and succinctly describe what you want done is extremely important. If you can’t relate your vision to your team, you won’t all be working towards the same goal and clear goals.

ADVICE FROM TOP EXECUTIVES

“First, define your market and test the market with a trial offering and variations of your offering to your target audience. Consider an offering that can scale and has a marketplace big enough to support it. Your product should meet a need, have a proper price/to value offering, and your company must have high customer service standards. Find and retain the right people that will allow you to scale, constantly refine processes for improved efficiency, and lastly, enjoy what you are doing – it will show and have a positive impact on both your employees and your clients.”
Jeffrey Lacy, President and CEO – ECI – Electronic Commerce, Inc.

“Enthusiasm and passion are the natural catalysts for growth, and every fast growing company I know has those two elements in abundance. If your employees have it, it leads to marketing and PR growth because you then have a company that can’t wait to interact with the broader market to validate the internal belief. If your customers have it the sales growth will also naturally follow, because the appetite that the marketing and PR efforts created can be easily converted to revenue because of the positive feedback from other customers. Moreover, we all know that enthusiasm is infectious; it’s the force-multiplier behind all other efforts, including recruiting, financing, and all other areas of company operations. My advice to fuel growth is to make sure you’re listening both inside and outside the company – if the passion and enthusiasm are lacking, dig deeper to find it. Without it achieving aggressive growth targets is much more difficult.”
Walter Angerer, CEO – Quorum

“”Knowledge, Confidence, Execution and Trust” are the key pillars of any successful organization.”
Prabhu Patil, President & CEO – PROLIM Global Corporation

“SADA places engineering, innovation and customer service at the core of our business model – we’re able to differentiate ourselves from other key players in the field of cloud computing by being the first to go to market with the solutions which address clients’ business needs and pain-points they may be experiencing. It’s key to stay ahead of the curve, while also focusing on execution and exceptional service.”
Tony Safoian, CEO and President – SADA Systems

“What promotes growth can vary significantly depending on your market. In any industry, what promotes growth is first and foremost having a vision for growth and executing on that vision. Long term growth in the engineering and manufacturing services market comes from organizations looking to build strategic partnerships to develop their new products or next generation products. To maintain and grow these strategic alliances, engineering and manufacturing services organizations’ must have a well-defined process that is easily articulated to clients and flawlessly executed upon. Continual growth is attributed to having the right resources on a project at the right time, doing good work for clients, and completing projects on-time and on budget.”
Alex Kunczynski, President – D&K Engineering

“AMAX positions itself as a trustworthy manufacturing and solutions provider to our customers. AMAX’s strength is in engineering expertise and solution design.

Growth comes from consistently delivering well-engineered and designed solutions targeting today’s specific IT and business requirements while maintaining the highest level of quality and performance.”
Jean Shih, President – AMAX

Creative Lodging Solutions’ founder and CEO, Michael Tetterton, believes in the value of taking risks to promote company growth. At each critical step in his company’s growth, from determining the right time to launch the company to turning a profit to surpassing the $100 million mark, Tetterton has undergone enormous risks to ensure his company’s success. He most recently invested one and a half year’s worth of net profits back into the company to create new jobs, increase the size of the sales department, and invest in new technology to take Creative Lodging Solutions to the next level. Tetterton’s investment paid off as Creative Lodging Solutions surpassed its goal of $100 million in revenue last year.

Success begins with a strong vision to disrupt a market. Replicon’s founders and Co-CEOs had the vision and ensured it was executed extremely well. In 1996 Lakshmi Raj and her husband Raj Narayanaswamy changed the way software is developed and delivered on the Internet by developing innovative, web-based time tracking software solutions. Replicon was one of the first companies to provide customers with SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions. The Co-CEOs have been instrumental in transforming the company from a grass-roots start up to a successful multinational enterprise providing 1.“no hassle” software that is easy to acquire, install, and use 2. fanatical and superior customer service and 3. “no hassle” implementation and training services at no cost to customers. Business today is about accelerating workforce productivity and companies are quickly realizing the value of not only tracking employee time, but understanding how that time is spent. Replicon’s guiding philosophy is that time truly is an enterprise asset, and this has driven Replicon’s growth in cloud-based time tracking solutions. With Ms. Raj’s focus on strategic initiatives for Replicon’s global operations, including market share expansion, revenue generation, and worldwide sales activities, she has been instrumental in providing global visibility for Replicon’s products and the overall future vision for the company. As a result Replicon has become the world leader in web-based time tracking solutions.

“First, execution is valued orders of magnitude over talk and ideas. Second, try to be in the right place at the right time for your customer/company. Third, move fast and try not to break stuff.”
Fred Hsu, President and CEO – Manage.com

“Recently, my firm was ranked No. 1 on Crain’s New York Business Best Places to Work list. It was also named Best Agency by the U.S. Search Awards. While some might see this as an “aligning of the stars,” I know that these acknowledgements were the result of a highly strategic plan that centered around attracting top talent. Many companies say that finding top talent is difficult or that there’s a talent shortage. Finding talent is not the issue. Attracting talent is the problem. And today, the very top talent—the type of people who both make your company a great place to work and increase the quality of the work you do—aren’t looking for a snazzy job description, and they aren’t scanning an endless stream of Twitter updates for job news. They will, however, notice a company that has a unique culture and attitude.”
Ben Kirshner, CEO – Elite SEM

“Depending on your market opportunity, growth can occur from a variety of factors. However, to start growing fast I suggest focusing on four key principles: 1) solve a big, specific customer problem; 2) work at easily communicating your business value; 3) iterate often before making plans to expand your go-to-market base; and 4) take advantage of strategic partnerships to increase your market reach. Today’s companies are all connected in some way, and figuring out your place in this ecosystem is paramount to selecting the right partners and delivering a better experience for your end customers. For private companies, acting as a lone wolf doesn’t work. The top players understand who their customers are and how to best serve them, which for private providers means creating a best-of-breed solution that solves targeted problems very well. Your solution can’t end there, however; you need to work on integrating it within existing ecosystems to offer customers access to a complete suite of best-of-breed solutions. The fact is that the majority of businesses, large and small, prefer a best of breed approach, so companies that create a strong product and tie it into an ecosystem with complementary products will experience very high growth potential. In short: to grow quickly, companies need to step back, identify and solve big problems and then develop potential partnerships that will drive the fastest growth to expand their customer base.”
Lou Guercia, President and CEO – Scribe Software

“We’ve grown a lot in the past year, both in the size of our team as well as our user base. Our team went from 10 to 50+ employees in the last year and a half, fueled by the success of our social search technology and the team culture we’ve been able to build. At the office, our motto is “work hard, play hard”. Our formula for success is to combine working on highly technical and innovative projects with fun team outings and office Nerf gun battles. By valuing knowledge sharing and teamwork, we’ve been able to recruit top talent and also demonstrate a high retention rate. Our product has also seen growth, expanding from a desktop browser solution to mobile apps. We’re actively funding research and development in order to improve the relevancy of our search results. We now have over 10 billion social recommendations indexed in our search engine. Finally, we’ve successfully found a way to make our innovations profitable. With innovative online advertising that is personalized to our users, we’re now showing more relevant ads that are actually useful! This has led to partnerships with three public companies, Yahoo!, eBay and Expedia.”
Martin-Luc Archambault, Founder & CEO – Wajam

Bryan Hertz, CEO and co-founder – Voxox

“I have always believed that if it is not broken, break it as there is always a better way to do something.”
Hal Blackman, President & CEO – IST Management Services

“Invest in the people. Creating a working environment that energizes and excites different types of people and allows for collaboration – whether it’s across departments or across the globe – is a necessity. It promotes employee success, innovation and growth, which in turn drives customer success and business growth. Furthermore, culture that is measurable is manageable, so take continual surveys of what cultural success looks like and share those best practices globally.”
Joe Zawadzki, CEO – MediaMath

In building Seal Software’s business with the goal of empowering contract professionals with the tools to have complete visibility and accessibility of their contract portfolio, Zetterberg has also made it a priority to cultivate a company culture that empowers their employees. Seal Software employees are immersed in an environment of independence with a high level of responsibility toward not only one another, but the overall company vision and its customers. Seal Software is a fast-growing company with employees traversing the globe, and because every single employee believes in the product they’re developing and the impact it can have on contract professionals, the staff works seamlessly together, regardless of title, to achieve their objectives. There is a high level of respect, camaraderie and collaboration that is truly impressive for a globally dispersed team.

“Innovation & new products development – commitment to ongoing innovation is key success factor to growth. Being flexible to changes when they occur is another important factor. • Spotting new business opportunities- it’s crucial to always be on the lookout for the next best business opportunities.”
Gil Dudkiewicz, Founder and CEO – StartApp

“Cultivate a team with a shared passion for your vision, promote creativity and reward inventiveness. You’ll end up with a team working with persistence to raise the bar not only in your company, but for your whole industry.”
Sanjay Patel, CEO and Co-Founder – Personify Inc.

Today, one of the biggest challenges distributed branch offices still face is maintaining the responsiveness to the business user needs while facilitating the adoption of consolidation and virtualized infrastructure. Many solutions have tried to create efficient file sharing and collaboration; however, these solutions lose the ability to guarantee a high quality user experience without degradation. The growth of Talon has been defined by our ability to stay focused on our plan that was initiated back in 2012. Our original plan was to first address a specific use case around distributed branch office collaboration in Microsoft based environments. Once we identified the vertical that faced most of the issues due to collaboration with and consolidation of very large files – specifically architecture, engineering and project based files – our strategy fell into place. When a company is new to the market, the advice I would give is “simple.” Don’t deviate from your focused plan until you have exhausted the potential use cases for your solution offering. Too many companies chase revenue and customers without a clear understanding of the foreseeable outcome of those actions.
Shirish Phatak, Chairman and CEO – Talon
