Milford, MA – Atlas Travel, a US-based travel management company that has been engineering a strategic expansion for the past two years, has been highlighted on The Build 100, the inaugural list of what’s being called “America’s Strongest and Most Strategic Growth Firms.” Atlas Travel is the only company in the travel and hospitality industry to make the list.
According to Build, the research team and media company created by editors from Inc. magazine, The Build 100 is the result of identifying 100,000 mid-sized U.S. companies (with 85-999 employees) who were then studied by Inc. Economist-in-Residence Gary Kunkle. Kunkle’s goal was to find companies that added head count for five consecutive years from 2007 to 2012, during the country’s “Great Recession.” The standard was so difficult that only 1.5 percent of companies made the cut. In the end, 100 were chosen to be part of a larger business research project and became The Build 100, the country’s “sustained growth champions.”
“We are proud to be in such esteemed company,” said Atlas Travel & Technology Group (ATTG) President and CEO Elaine Osgood, whose organization has been listed on the five-time Inc. 5000 Honor Roll. “I am pleased to say that we have achieved success in various ways during every one of the 27 years we’ve been in business. The travel industry has been a challenge since I launched Atlas Travel in 1986, but when you build the right team anything is possible. As we celebrated our 25th Anniversary, I set out to strategize our next step toward expansion. Over the past two years, we have added new people, new products and services, opened new offices in the U.S. and we’re about to announce more exciting news about further expansion.”
Osgood is featured in the special Build 100 section in the March 2014 issue of Inc. magazine and highlighted for her strategic management of a travel agency that was never daunted by “a growing army of Internet competitors.” The article highlights Osgood’s dedication to launching not only a stellar travel management company, but also a data, analytics and benchmarking firm to serve both her company and her competitors.
“I look forward to learning from this dynamic group of CEOs as this research continues,” added Osgood, “and feel very fortunate to have been chosen as part of this long-term project that will inform business strategy and innovation.”
