Company: Innovative Growth Solutions Name and Title of Person Interviewed: Arthur R. Ruderman, President Born in the Bronx. Formative years on Long Island. Married high school sweetheart. Two children. Earned a joint BS degree in Business & Economics from American University (Wash. D.C.). After nine years of living in Houston, when the oil & gas industry fell below investment grade, I relocated to Atlanta this past June to be near family and formed a business development consulting firm. My company provides business development and client acquisition services. Most people consider business development activities as marketing and sales. Marketing & sales are functions of business development, whereas business development is more global and holistic. Business development initiates with a strategy that is developed from insight drawn from analysis and implemented with a well crafted execution plan. An advantage I offer clients is that I can leverage expertise from having been the owner of a mfg. company that employed 135 workers and grossed $100MM over its duration and whose business development efforts have secured $1.5bn in sales for a large global engineering & construction company and have been equally successful in scale with closely-held companies in diverse industries. My target companies are B2B closely-held small & midsize businesses in diverse industries. Topics/Questions: Why did you decide to form your own Business Development Consulting company? Why the name Innovative Growth Solutions? Can you give an example of innovation for driving business? Can you give an example of strategic innovation?
