Joint program between KPMG LLP and the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business identifies and assembles select group of entrepreneurs leading high growth, private companies
MACON, MO – May 14, 2018
Onshore Outsourcing, based in Macon, Mo., today announced that CEO Shane Mayes has been selected as one of QuantumShift’s Top Entrepreneurs in America for 2018 by KPMG LLP’s Private Markets Group and the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business.
QuantumShift assembles an impressive class of founders, owners and CEOs of private, high growth U.S.-based companies to boost their development through an intensive, five-day learning, networking and collaboration program featuring sessions with Ross School of Business faculty and talented industry professionals.
“This program has been a game changer for me. I’ve spent the past week living in what is essentially a college dorm room with 40 of the top entrepreneurs in the country. During the process, we started to share and wrestle through challenges that our businesses face. I’ve built friendships here that I believe will last a lifetime. And I’ll be going back home with a new set of tools, with renewed confidence in my business and with clarity of purpose,” Mayes said.

According to the recent study by BMC Software, 73% of IT decision makers believe businesses that do not embrace IT automation to achieve the larger digital business transformation strategy within the next five years will cease to exist in 10 years.
“Automation in a human outsourcing business is not a good place to be,” [CEO Shane] Mayes said. “In order to prepare ourselves well for the future, we have to attack these technologies.” Fear of automation pushed Mayes to launch a new subsidiary, OTS Digital, where employees are tasked with developing new technology.

Onshore Outsourcing, which trains rural Americans and veterans for technology careers and delivers tailored IT services to Fortune 2000 companies, has been recognized for the rapid growth of its business with a 2016 Fast Track award from the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Each year, the Missouri Chamber honors the state’s fastest-growing companies, top chambers of commerce and lawmakers who are making a difference in the capitol. Fast Track award winners are selected based on the companies’ revenue growth in the last three years. During that period, Onshore’s revenues have increased 400 percent.
Founded and based in Macon, Missouri, Onshore hires and trains IT workers in rural communities for businesses that would otherwise send that work overseas. Since its beginnings in Macon, Onshore has grown to include a total of four facilities in Missouri and Georgia.
“We at Onshore provide cost-effective IT services that leverage the often overlooked rural workforce,” CEO Shane Mayes explained. “Corporations that use our services can compete more effectively in the global marketplace and individuals can better their lives with rewarding careers. We’re proud of the work we do and the contribution our employees and our organization make in the communities we serve.”
A book, “Emerging ITO and BPO Markets: Rural Sourcing and Impact Sourcing,” features Onshore Outsourcing along with other great rural outsourcing firms. It’s co-authored by Mary Lacity and Joe Rottman with the University of Missouri St. Louis. This is a “must-read” for anyone interested in learning more about this emerging industry.
