Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
GoldMax USA, a trusted buyer of gold and silver and one of the largest precious metals buyers in the United States, was named the number one fastest-growing private company in Atlanta, Georgia by the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Pacesetter Awards, during a breakfast held on Friday, April 27, 2012, at the Cobb Galleria Centre. This prestigious award recognizes the growth of GoldMax along with its excellent customer service, business partnerships, and having the right talent. The event held at the Cobb Galleria Centre, drew a sold-out crowd of 460 people.
The Pacesetter Awards recognize the 50 fastest-growing companies in the metro-Atlanta area. To qualify for this prestigious list, a company must be privately-held, based in the metro Atlanta area and have experienced a two-year growth in sales of more than 50 percent with 2011 revenues between $1 million and $300 million.
GoldMax was originally established in Georgia as Southeast Gold Buyers in Atlanta in 2009 by CEO Scott Garber. In 2011 alone, the company quadrupled its revenues, as gold prices have increased in recent years. The number of locations continues to expand and, by 2016, GoldMax hopes to have at least 900 locations nationwide.
“It is a huge honor to receive the Pacesetter Award and be named the fastest-growing company in metro-Atlanta especially considering the caliber of companies that have been recognized with us,” said Garber. “A number of factors have aligned in our favor in recent years that have led to our overall success. A success that also wouldn’t be possible without our entire, dedicated GoldMax team. We believe in helping the communities not only by providing liquidity in such a difficult economy, but also by helping and dedicating our time and other resources to really make a difference.”
GoldMax attributes the fast-growth to the company’s high growth model that is focused on providing consumers liquidity for historically illiquid assets. GoldMax is dedicated to providing an upscale environment where consumers can feel comfortable selling their gold and silver jewelry and coins. GoldMax will purchase gold (any karat), silver, platinum, necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings, charms, watches, broken jewelry, diamonds, coins, paper currency, sterling silver flatware, tea sets, and candlesticks.
“GoldMax has an incredibly bright future ahead of them and it is an honor to have the opportunity to work with Scott and the entire GoldMax team,” said Charles Bailey, partner at Habif, Arogeti & Wynne, LLP, Georgia’s largest independent accounting firm, and nominator of GoldMax for the Pacesetter Awards. “Congratulations to the team on this distinguished recognition and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for the company.”
