Jeff Smith Alliance Health

Jeff Smith, CEO, Alliance Health

“Technology is a constant challenge. We need to stay innovative if we want to compete in the healthcare space. That means always pushing the limits to build platforms that engage our customers. We brought on a new CIO who has helped tackle these problems head-on and helped us migrate to a more scalable system that will strategically, successfully drive us forward.”
-Jeff Smith, CEO, Alliance Health

“We do good as we do well. … Philanthropic efforts at our apartment communities [include] after-school programs for resident children, financial literacy classes and free or reduced rent for non-profit organizations.”
-Jeff Danley, CEO, Peak Capital Partners

“Our biggest challenge is balancing financial capital and human capital. We’ve kept our focus on these two key elements of our business, which in turn has helped make great things happen.”
-Bob Millerberg, CEO, Crest Financial Services

“The travel industry is growing and changing at a rapid pace. Our company and others like us are pushing innovations that challenge and disrupt traditional companies and old business models. More often than not, however, this disruption takes the form of greater consumer empowerment by giving the consumer access to more information than they ever had before.”
-Daniel A. Nelson, CEO, Partner Fusion

“OnSite’s strong growth is due to having a product/service that solves rising healthcare costs for employers without limiting benefits for employees—but rather providing a more robust health benefit for them. … OnSite has a solid track record with having workplace primary care clinics be our core business, and we are continually revising our processes to improve our efficiency as our company scales. Our value proposition for healthcare providers is to be able to practice medicine outside of the dysfunctional and broken fee-for-service model.”
-Donna L. Milavetz, MD, MPH, FACP (CEO), OnSite Care, Inc.

“Although we are nearly 14 years old, we’ve kept our entrepreneurial spirit. We empower our employees to be entrepreneurs and decide how to be successful in their position and role with the company. By focusing on growing people, we’ve seen company will grow as well.”
– John Sperry, Founder and CEO, InMoment

“We focused on building a strong foundation and creating a culture that would attract people that were smarter and better than ourselves. Our team cares about our clients, they care about their co-workers and they care about our industry. And they are dedicated to making sure that we are building a strong brand and reputation. We believe that we could take the foundation, the team and our culture and be successful in almost any industry. We firmly believe that you can do the right thing and have success. It is the only way to build a company that will last.”
-Jess Phillips, Owner and Co-Founder, Auric Solar

“When you experience rapid growth, it’s hard to realize quickly enough what was working great for you a few years ago isn’t anymore. Taking the time to think strategically and embracing change while hanging on to core values is key to sustainable growth.”
-Steve Mills, CEO, Uinta Brewing Company

“I love to see all of our clients’ businesses grow. Our service enables technology companies to scale their development teams quickly. Our growth is tied to their growth.”
-Brigham Tomco, CEO, Zylun

“We’re working hard to grow our list of sellers so we can diversify our product offering and increase the quantity of deals being offered. With that comes the challenge of getting the right products in front of the people who are most interested in buying them. That is being worked on right now and we’re really excited to how it’s received.”
-Mike McEwan, CEO,

“We had to find the best brands and early adopters and get them to use our services so that others would follow. This was difficult. So we got a bus, filled it with advocates, and drove it around the country to prove that advocates are the way of the future. It worked, and as a result, we now work with leading brands across most major e-commerce industries.”
-Morgan Lynch, CEO/Founder, Needle
