Greater Mankato Growth Reaches Important Milestone
Mankato, MINN (November 7, 2016) – Greater Mankato Growth is excited to congratulate and thank all of our members as we reach a new level of distinction in the state of Minnesota. At a special event held this afternoon, Greater Mankato Growth revealed it is now proudly serving 1,000 members.
Karen Toft, Member Relations Director, said “At our March Annual Meeting, we celebrated the region’s steady rise and economic performance of our marketplace. Membership in GMG has grown steadily over the last five years. That growth stems in part from our members. When the business community comes together to support the regional marketplace, not only do businesses reap the rewards but the entire region feels the positive impact. Our growth and strength shows in our numbers.”
“The Greater Mankato business community is a key driver of our marketplace and the accomplishments of Greater Mankato Growth, Inc. Analytics provide evidence that GMG members generally do better with double the survivability, two times the customer satisfaction and fans, and expand at four times the rate of non-members.”, said Jonathan Zierdt, President & CEO of Greater Mankato Growth, Inc. “We are enabled to embrace opportunities to advance business for a stronger community because of our members, the regional marketplace, our integrated organization, staff and volunteers. We are delighted and proud to be in the top five chambers in the state for membership and serve every business we come in contact with.”
