Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 11, 2014
Gorilla Group is excited to announce that September 11th marks the company’s 20th anniversary. Since its founding in September of 1994, Gorilla has grown from a partnership to almost 200 employees, across six offices worldwide. Under the leadership of Brian Grady, who assumed the roles of Principal and CEO in 2008, Gorilla has evolved its offerings and strategic approach to ecommerce to become an internationally recognized, award-winning commerce services provider.
“I would like to thank all of our clients and employees, past and present, for everything they’ve done to make Gorilla what it is today, and for helping to shape where we’ll be tomorrow,” said Brian Grady, CEO at Gorilla Group. “Gorilla Group has accomplished some incredible things over the course of its history, but I’m confident enough to say that the best is yet to come.”
Since the 2008 ownership change, Gorilla has expanded its Chicago team to over 100 employees, while opening offices in New York, Irvine California, Montreal, Kiev Ukraine, and Wroclaw Poland. Adding so many talented, skilled employees to its workforce is one of the company’s proudest achievements.
Gorilla has been recognized by the International Academy of Arts and Sciences with 5 Webby Awards, in addition to winning numerous other design awards and industry honors from strategic solution partners Magento and hybris. Directly related to the quality of its client work and growing reputation, the company has been named to the Inc. 5000 four consecutive years, the ICIC’s Inner City 100 three times, twice as one of Chicago’s Top 100 Digital Companies, and as a 2014 Crain’s Chicago Business FastFifty honoree.
Gorilla is also especially proud of its charitable work, which includes participating in the Spark mentorship program, and the company’s own Prime 8 Art League initiative, which partners with the local arts community to host contests and events that support emerging and practicing artists.
