As a strategic business partner, ESG specializes in providing professional outsourced HR Services to small and mid-sized companies.

By partnering with ESG, clients are able to eliminate, reduce and/or manage the risks and administrative necessities associated with having employees. This partnership allows clients to focus on what they do best, thereby allowing them to become more efficient in their core business.
Mark Trimble, ESG Vice President of Operations – Arizona Market, recently shared how being an Accelerent Partner has continued to be an important aspect of their business.

What attracted you to Accelerent:

ESG was one of the original Partners in Accelerent. At that time when we joined there were only 7 other Partners. The caliber of the Partners is what initially attracted us to Accelerent, and over 5 years later, it is still one of the main reasons we continue to be a part of Accelerent.

How Accelerent helps build business:

Accelerent takes a different approach than the typical networking group. Because each Partner has made a significant financial investment to be a part of Accelerent, the drive to give and get meaningful referrals is strong among Partners. Another differentiator is that Accelerent provides a proven system for involving both Executives and Producers of the company. Since being a Partner in Accelerent, we have brought on new business revenues over the years that have far exceeded our cumulative financial investment. ESG, and its affiliates in other markets, have generated over $4 million through Accelerent.

Advice for prospective Partners:

Be patient. The ROI curve for each Partner is different, but if Partners are committed to the process and actively participate, the returns always come. Building trust with the other Partners and a commitment to being accountable is also critical. Accelerent Partners are more than willing to share their trusted relationships, but they first have to know that you can be trusted with the referrals they give. Once this occurs, the opportunities flow.

Having completed thousands of projects over the years, Immedia has built a reputation of excellence in design and service, and of standing true to their word. Jeff Emmons, Owner of Immedia, recently shared with us how joining Accelerent has contributed to their success.

How Accelerent helps build business:

Immedia joined Accelerent in September 2016 and quickly aligned with several Accelerent Partners who target similar clients and projects. In the last 5 months we have identified more than $2 million of new opportunities and received contracts for more than $1 million of new work. It is hard to quantify the amount of business that we have referred, however, we have had several people on our sales team that have invited Accelerent Partners to attend joint sales calls and both companies have gotten traction from cross selling. A few of our best clients have begun working with Accelerent Partners.

Advice for other partners or prospective partners:

Identify Accelerent Partners that are closely aligned in the type of clients and projects that they pursue and work with them to develop a strategy to cross sell. The opportunities are plentiful but you have to stay focused and work to be successful. A great partnership results from 100% effort on both sides. Accelerent provides a forum and vehicle for relationships to grow. The firms that are involved have already made a financial commitment to be serious about growing their businesses, thus, they are significantly more interested in building strong partnerships.

As a financial services company, WealthPoint is committed to helping its clients achieve clarity in their financial endeavors with a process-oriented and results driven approach.

Tim Young, one of the Partners at WealthPoint, recently shared how being an Accelerent Partner has continued to be an important aspect of their success.

How Accelerent helps build business:

Referrals are the best sources of clients for us and Accelerent is a platform for "introductions with clout." It’s impossible for us to cold call since we have such a niche client base, so introductions from fellow Accelerent Partners have been a game changer. In fact, we have seen a return of over six times our investment.

Advice for prospective partners:

This is not a traditional leads group; it is much more powerful. Accelerent Partners hold themselves accountable with following the process, and this aspect is critical in order to see success with the model. You really have to be committed, make the investment in time and money and participate. We are one of the original Accelerent Phoenix Partners and certainly attribute being part of this organization to our continued success.

As an IT management and services consulting firm, MYTEK Network Solutions partners with businesses to position their technology infrastructure for greater innovation and business leadership in a changing global marketplace.

MYTEK’s CEO, Brian Blakley recently shared "We continue to be excited about Accelerent because its mission of building relationships and partnerships is in perfect alignment with our mission to provide forward-thinking IT management."

How Accelerent helps build business:

Since joining Accelerent in January 2015, MYTEK has followed up on approximately 10 solid leads and continued to build strong relationships with many other Partners in Phoenix. These closed sales have already paid for the annual membership costs eight times over. MYTEK will continue to see that revenue for years to come based on their recurring revenue model.

Recently, MYTEK won several organizational accolades and awards that range from #1 Network Integrator in Arizona to INC 500 fastest growing company in America.

Advice for prospective partners:

Accelerent is about building powerful relationships in the business community and learning how to be of service and value to fellow members.

Brian shared, “You should choose Accelerent if you are looking to meet very high quality, well-connected Phoenix professionals but know that Accelerent requires an investment in time and money. Only people willing to take on this commitment should consider joining. We invested in it and the return has been great.”
