Atlanta Daybook: GIP Highlights Lanham Associates in Honor of National Entrepreneurship Month

Gwinnett Innovation Park a unique and affordable environment for new and growing companies recognizes Lanham Associates’ success as part of National Entrepreneurship month. (http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2011/11/01/presidential-proclamation-national-entrepreneurship-month-2011) Lanham Associates has experienced double-digit growth during the difficult economic market of 2011.

Lanham Associates, a Microsoft Gold-Certified Partner, offers comprehensive solutions for today’s complex supply chain demands, delivering high-quality planning and execution solutions through their key channel of resellers. As a Microsoft Presidents Club and Inner Circle Award winner, Lanham Associates’ well tested and stable products are used by more than 1600 end customer companies with over 86,000 users in 22 countries worldwide.

Supply chain solutions are complex and Lanham Associates, in partnership with their resellers, provides expert consultants to assist in specific supply chain solutions and implementation. To ensure long-term success, Lanham also provides high quality training to their partners and end use customers who rely on their services.

Even with double-digit success, Lanham Associates, known for their supply chain excellence, has taken a conservative approach during this challenging, economic environment. Part of Lanham’s conservative approach was their choice to house Lanham Associates at Gwinnett Innovation Park (GIP).

“Lanham Associates is a shining example of a true entrepreneurial company growing from a start-up to a very successful business,” said Marcy Powers, general manager of Gwinnett Innovation Park. “Their down-to-earth environment and dedication to providing superior customer service, while delivering a great product, has resulted in an award-winning company. We celebrate the significant and everyday successes of Lanham Associates and feel honored to have supported them throughout the years.”

GIP offered Lanham Associates an instant office and flexible space to grow through the years. Lanham started with three people and has experienced tremendous growth while at GIP. “As a start-up, Gwinnett Innovation Park gave us the infrastructure we needed to nurture and grow our business,” said Mary Lanham, COO of Lanham Associates. “During our time here, Lanham Associates moved three times to larger spaces, but kept the same address. Additionally, the variety and availability of the numerous training and conference rooms is a key benefit of Gwinnett Innovation Park.”

In the last 20 years, GIP helped more than 75 start-up companies. Recently, GIP announced the eHub Nspire Program and Founders Grant to help spark the technology start-up community and provide entrepreneurs with resources to grow and succeed.
