A Rewarding Week:
The last week has been a big one for awards at companies affiliated with my investment partnership, Greybull Stewardship. We are focused on investing in existing businesses with $1 to $3 million in net income that want a stable co-owner (minority or majority equity positions) that enables the company to pursue its own unique growth plan. Our fund will not force the company into particular growth plans or exit plans as most funds require.
Congratulations to the following people on some recent awards:
Bob LaLoggia, the CEO of Appointment Plus, was named the Business Leader of the Year by the Arizona Governor for the Celebration of Innovation Award Event. Appointment Plus is the leader in online appointment scheduling software for any industry and any size business. The number of appointments booked through Appointment Plus every day is getting to be unbelievably huge. This award will be presented in December.
National Holistic Institute
Pat Troxel, Director of Compliance for the National Holistic Institute, was named the Financial Aid Professional of the Year for California. The National Holistic Institute is the best massage therapy school in the country and has 7 locations in California. This award will be presented in October.
Main Street Gourmet
Earlier in the year, Steven Marks, co-CEO of Main Street Gourmet, received the Business Leader of the Year award from the Greater Akron Chamber of Commerce. Main Street Gourmet develops custom, signature bakery items for restaurant and grocery companies.
It is fun to work with great people — congratulations to these people on their recent awards!
