Locally and nationally, EO Nashville was all over the news last week.
Friday’s Nashville Business Journal has three stories about and one mention of EO Nashville companies:
- A full-page story on page 2 covers the EO Nashville Fall Economic Survey, highlighted by comments from EO members Andy Bailey of Rock Habits and Chris Glaser of Focus Technology Group.
- EO member Kevin Ross of Metova is featured in today’s NBJ Case Study, where he talks about how employee empowerment has been key to his firm’s success.
- EO member Jerry Bostelman of Vaco was profiled for having one of Nashville’s 25 fastest growing companies. Like Kevin Ross, Jerry attributes a large portion of his company’s success to engaging and listening to his employees.
- EO member Darren Metz’s company, Novacopy was listed as a member of the NBJ 100, which are the 100 largest privately held companies in Nashville by revenue. This is Novacopy’s first year on the list and it came on at the 93 spot. (Vaco, mentioned above, moved up from 54 to 40 on the list this year.)
And, on the national front, EO member Miranda Pontes’ restaurant, Burger Up, had its now-famous Jack Daniels Maple Ketchup featured in the most recent issue of People magazine in an article about the new food trend of fancy ketchup.
