ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Jan 21, 2016) - Phoenix Integrated Store Consultants' Market Manager, CJ Young, was recently asked to stand up as one of the keynote speakers for the Leadership Expo in Dallas, TX. Having catapulted Phoenix into the top marketing firm nationally for production and customer experience, Young expressed his excitement about the invitation, stating, "I am honored to have the opportunity. I get a chance to inspire people to step up their game when it comes to personal performance." As a manager, Young takes a hands-on approach with rising leaders in his firm from taking the time to personally mentor to providing travel and networking opportunities. Phoenix Team Leaders, Chris Egeonu, Chris Languist, Tony Turner, Evon Rice, and Mike Smith, will also be flying to Dallas, TX to attend the conference. Travel opportunities like this one are just one of the ways in which Phoenix Integrated Store Consultants invests in their employees.
On January 7, 2016, the company's top client in the satellite industry announced that Phoenix Integrated Store Consultants is their top partner in production and customer retention. When asked about the company's success and his personal accomplishment as a manager, Young shared his secret to high achievement: "The key is trying to have a consistent attitude, staying positive, and getting inspired by my team." The team dynamic at Phoenix sets them apart from other businesses. Egeonu, who will be accompanying Young to Dallas, described the company culture at Phoenix: "It's more like a family; that's our culture. Together we rise." The inclusive atmosphere and community of Phoenix has definitely allowed the organization to expand in a major way this year with the inclusion of additional clients and Fortune 500 retail partners.
Last year, the company was listed on Atlanta's Best and Brightest Company's to work for in 2015, and Phoenix Integrated Store Consultants has recently accepted a nomination for Atlanta's Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in 2016 as well. Young expressed his excitement, saying, "It makes me feel great that we have been recognized and honored for the award. It says a lot about what we believe about ourselves and what others think of our company. It makes me want to keep growing, improving, and getting better." That appears to be exactly what he is doing by providing networking and travel opportunities to the rising managers at Phoenix.
When asked about the upcoming Dallas Leadership Expo, Phoenix's Team Leaders seemed most excited for the chance to get to network with other marketing professionals from across the country. One of the advantages of attending the Expo is the opportunity to meet and build relationships with other marketing professionals across the nation. Languist asserted, "Networking is the most important part of the journey to success. My favorite saying is it takes a village. I want to learn from the best." Young reported that the main reason Phoenix provides opportunities for employees to go one road trips and conferences because the experience provides perspective. Rice, a Team Leader going to the Dallas Leadership Expo, stated that he is "most excited about seeing the bigger picture of the marketing program."
All of the Team Leaders who will be attending the Dallas Leadership Expo are currently going through Phoenix's in-house management training program, which develops career-oriented employees in a background of business development, sales and marketing strategy, teambuilding and communications. Phoenix believes that promotions should be based on merit rather than seniority; therefore, all managers at Phoenix have started at entry level and worked their way to the top, learning each facet of the business on their way to leadership. Team Leader, Smith, remarked that in-house mentorship has developed him as a professional, stating, "My mentor has helped me the most by being able to offer advice and most importantly, setting a positive example." Fellow trainer, Egeonu added, "It's not just about us. It's about helping others in whatever they do. If you're going to influence someone's life, you might as well be positive." The positive environment at Phoenix Integrated Store Consultants permeates each layer of the business from management training to the marketing campaigns they do for their clients.
Phoenix Integrated Store Consultants recently announced plans to expand in 2016, and in order to do that, Market Manager, Young, will be developing ten additional Market Manager positions by the end of this year. When asked for his criteria on promotions, he asserted, "It's based on doing the right things, following the rules. It ultimately comes down to a person's attitude and dedication to get results." With rising leaders like Egeonu, Languist, Rice, Smith, and Turner, Phoenix Integrated Store Consultants is sure to start the New Year out in the right direction.
