ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Aug 6, 2012) - Doug Bates, who owns CMIT Solutions of Fayette/Coweta, Ga., has managed to avoid the dreaded "revenue plateau" -- the flattening of a business owner's growth curve after a year or two, a common affliction of small businesses.
Bates opened CMIT Solutions of Fayette/Coweta in April 2009 and drove strong absolute year-over-year growth in both 2010 and 2011 -- recently winning him CMIT Solutions' Momentum Award, presented to the local owner who has shown significant annual growth over at least three years.
"My driving factor is my faith," Bates said. "All God asks me to do is the best I can do and to have faith that He'll take care of the rest. With that in mind, we try to do right by our customers and work hard to exceed their expectations."
Bates' dedication to CMIT Solutions and his customers make him an invaluable asset to the team, said CMIT Solutions President and CEO Jeff Connally: "His success in CMIT has been astounding, and he willingly shares his knowledge with other franchisees."
Bates, 51, spent 22 years working in sales and marketing for several companies, including LEGO, GE Lighting and Tyco, where he served as global vice president but grew tired of spending time away from his family. He said he believes community involvement is part of his responsibility as a local business owner.
"We build relationships with our clients," Bates said. "We have woven ourselves happily into the fabric of our community, and that has been a blessing for our business."
