IMG ventured to the desert from Providence to Phoenix to celebrate our exciting Inc. 5000 achievement! Our founders, Gil Lantini & Ralph Coppolino, arrived early to participate in some of Inc’s conferences. They watched inspiring presentations hosted by Inc’s Editor and Chief, Scott Omelianuk, with guest speakers Wayne Brady – Producer, actor, and musician, Makin’ It Up Productions, and Daymond John – Founder and CEO of FUBU; star of “Shark Tank”; author of “Powershift.”
We couldn’t let the guys have all the fun! Our directors, Annabella Williamson, Cassandra Remillard & Mallory Angles, arrived later in the week to join in on the festivities. We lounged poolside, taking client calls, and later on, the entire group enjoyed a delicious dinner as we aligned our vision for the following year.
The biggest trip highlight was attending the Inc. 5000 Gala, a celebration bringing together a sampling of Inc. 5000’s most talented, determined, and creative entrepreneurs. A fantastic night is sure to ensue! Founder and CEO of The Honey Pot Company Beatrice Dixon and Rich Eisen – Founder, host of “The Rich Eisen Show,” and host on the NFL Network hosted the event, setting a joyous tone for the evening, with an extraordinary musical act for the crescendo of the night. As they announced each list member’s name, you could feel palpable excitement in the massive event space. Things really took off when the dance floor opened up! Many laughs and smiles later, a fantastic evening came to a close.
Thank you, Inc. 5000 for this incredible opportunity. Congratulations to all of the other nominees, and thank you to all of the IMG team, clients & partners who made our ranking on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America possible.
