WASHINGTON, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Growth Strategy Company, a leading provider of growth-focused enterprise software, research and consulting services, announced today that Wayne Simmons, TGSCo's co-founder and CEO was awarded the 2013 Visionary Award by the Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce. Wayne Simmons was recognized for his long career of entrepreneurial achievements among innovative Northern Virginia individuals in the founder and CEO roles. "Entrepreneurship is engrained in me. But this award is a tribute to the many colleagues and customers that I've had the honor of working with along the way," stated Mr. Simmons. Mr. Simmons has founded and grown three companies in the Northern Virginia area: the IO2Group (1999-2001), ICOR Partners LLC (2002-2010) and The Growth Strategy Company (2010-Present).
His first entrepreneurial venture, the IO2Group was an eight-person telecommunications industry product development firm. Within two years of its founding, he led the company through its acquisition by Primus Telecommunications Group. ICOR Partners LLC was a strategic management and consulting firm serving government agencies that Mr. Simmons grew from 1 employee to 100 employees, sub-contractors and consultants, and over $15 million in revenue in eight years. ICOR's rapid growth landed it on the Inc. 500 list of fastest growing companies. It was also a recipient of Consulting Magazine's Small Jewel award. Excellare Capital Partners and Acquisition Solutions acquired ICOR in a private equity transaction in 2010.
In May of 2013, his latest venture, The Growth Strategy Company (TGSCo.), launched GrowthCloud®, the first-to-market cloud-based, enterprise software platform that enables companies to better organize, analyze and act on information critical to business growth. GrowthCloud fills a critical void in the marketplace for cloud-based corporate strategy automation similar to the void Salesforce.com has filled with sales and customer relationship management automation. "Many companies are using business growth strategies and tools that are ad hoc and decades old," said Wayne Simmons. "With GrowthCloud they now have access to a powerful capability that uses advanced technology, better insights and modern social processes to maximize growth outcomes, improve future growth prospects and make business growth an enduring organizational capability."
The 2013 Visionary Award ceremony took place at the annual Innovate Conference (http://innovate-nova.com) in Herndon, VA on October 17th that plays an important role in showcasing innovation, entrepreneurship and emerging technologies in the NOVA area.
