Nomination Title: G-Force Shipping

Tell the story about what this nominated organization achieved since January 1 2013 (up to 525 words). Focus on specific accomplishments, and relate these accomplishments to past performance or industry norms. Be sure to mention obstacles overcome, innovations or discoveries made, and outcomes. Begin this section with the following two lines: Year over year revenue growth (%): Year over year employee growth (%):

In 2013, G-Force has grown its employee base from 18 to 33 (100%) and increased revenue from $6.7M in 2012 to $10M (50%) this year. G-Force is expected to crack Inc 500’s “Top 500 Companies in the Country for Growth” in 2014 and over the past year, has been recognized by multiple, prestigious awards tagging the Massachusetts based company as not only one of New England’s, but the nation’s fastest growing companies.

As a rapidly expanding company on the brink of cementing itself as a national, industry leader in the third party logistics shipping industry (3PL), G-Force Shipping has seen more revenue and employee growth since January 2013 than any business period since CEO, Scott Guilbeault founded the company in 2009.

Awards include but are not limited to: “2013 Top-Privately-Held Business in Massachusetts” by Diversity Business, “Fastest Growing Company of the Year” by the 2013 American Business Awards, and “Fastest Growing Company of the Year” and “Best Place to Work” by Best in Biz 2013 International. In addition to these recent awards, G-Force CEO, Scott Guilbeault was selected by Ernst & Young as a semifinalist for its “Entrepreneur of the Year 2013 New England Program” and G-Force was named “One of The Nations Best and Brightest Companies to Work For” by 101 Best and Brightest.

G-Force has created a young, aggressive, results oriented culture supplying not just a paycheck, but a career for motivated future leaders. Due to the company’s outstanding sales training program, G-Force enjoys the luxury of selecting employees on the basis of their intelligence, work ethic and ambition, opposed to years of industry experience. In trying times for recent college graduates to find a quality job and progress through a company hierarchy, G-Force has established a proven track record of hiring recent graduates and promoting from within, currently possessing three managers under the age of 26.

G-Force essentially does for shipping products what sites like Orbitz, Expedia and Travelocity do for shipping people. G-Force leverages advancements in technology to negotiate deep discounts with over 91 partner carriers for Full Truckload and Less-than-Truckload services, but what truly differentiates G-Force from the competition is its innovative yet “old-school” approach to customer service. A live person will answer the phone within 3rings guaranteed. G-Force agents are available 24/7 and G-Force measures customer satisfaction everyday via NPS (Net Promoter Score) and boasts the best scores in the industry.

G-Force’s great success is exemplified by the journey CEO Scott Guilbeault has taken in building the rapidly expanding company. After successfully establishing four separate million-dollar corporations, all of Scott’s success, wealth and assets were stripped in 2009 when DHL withdrew from the U.S. market and destroyed his shipping business at the time. The catastrophic losses resulted in the failure of Scott’s business, the loss of his commercial real estate, the termination his franchise agreement and the defaulting of his SBA loans. Scott’s family’s home was in the process of being foreclosed upon and he was at the brink of personal bankruptcy. Scott used the little money he had left to launch G-Force in a tiny office above a pizza parlor and the rest is history.
