Florida Governor Rick Scott and Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera visited Showroom Logic’s Miami, FL office yesterday, recognizing Miami’s fastest-growing company for adding 58 tech-sector jobs in the last two years.
Governor Scott presented Showroom Logic CEO Neal Gann with the Governor’s Business Ambassador Medal. He also recognized two key employees: Veronica Lopez, HR Manager, and Joel Villar, Manager of Financial Accounting, for representing Showroom Logic’s values.
Gov. Scott praised Showroom Logic for choosing South Florida. “(Showroom Logic) could have gone to Texas…but what’s exciting today is that they chose Miami for their corporate headquarters and their future growth. They work with our higher education institutions; they work with CareerSource (Florida) because they want the best talent (and) because their clients expect a lot. You can tell they’ve got a lot of talent here.”
“From our humble beginnings in 2009 when it was just two guys with an idea, we’ve certainly come a long way”, said Neal Gann, CEO of Showroom Logic. “We’d like to thank our clients and our amazing team for making all of this possible.”
In addition to the press, there were several dignitaries on hand representing Showroom Logic’s global and local partnerships. These included Jay Majithia, Strategic Partner Development Manager, SMB, Google, and Teresa Ponte, Chair and Associate Professor, School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Florida International University.
Governor Scott’s visit comes days after Showroom Logic was named 2015 Google Customer Satisfaction Champion and received Google’s mobile award for clients’ mobile advertising performance. It was also named the fastest-growing company in Miami by Inc. In August, Showroom Logic was named to the Inc 500 list for the second year in a row, ranking #143.
