Program founded by Emory University and Innovations Publishing honors exceptional privately-held companies like SecureUSA that have achieved exceptional success in both business growth and market development.

SecureUSA, Inc., a provider of perimeter security consulting, engineering, and integration today announced it has been selected to participate in the GBS Eagles program, an exclusive network of entrepreneurs, advisors, and capital sources designed to promote successful business practices in the region. The GBS Eagles program was recently launched by the Center for Entrepreneurship and Corporate Growth (CECG) at Emory’s Goizueta Business School (GBS) and Innovations Publishing. The inaugural GBS Eagles Conference, which took place on May 11, 2005, is the Southeast's premier forum for discussing growth issues faced by emerging private companies.

"It is truly an honor to be named part of the inaugural class of GBS Eagles, honoring those companies that have demonstrated leadership and sustainable growth,” said Mitch Morgan, President of SecureUSA.

In addition to being privately-held, companies which are named GBS Eagles must have:

• Generated more than $3 million in revenue during the last twelve months;

• Exhibited annual revenue growth in excess of 20 percent compounded over the past three years or experienced headcount growth in excess of 25 percent compounded over the past three years.

“The mission of the GBS Eagles program is to understand the critical issues a high-growth company faces throughout its business lifecycle and to identify the successful processes implemented to address these issues,” said Edward Hess, executive director of the CECG. “The companies recognized as GBS Eagles have realized incredible success in the face of these very issues. Their participation in the GBS Eagles program will provide other early-stage companies with valuable information to scale with high growth.”
