SHANE MAYES NAMED A QUANTUMSHIFT 2018 TOP ENTREPRENEUR IN AMERICA
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. and providing IT and digital consulting services nationally, 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.
Shane Mayes and Onshore Outsourcing, IT services and digital consulting provider, were selected to be part of the QuantumShift 2018 class by the Michigan Ross QuantumShift Admissions Committee having demonstrated a strong track record for revenue growth and future growth potential. This collaborative project between KPMG LLP’s Private Markets Group – the U.S. audit, tax and advisory firm – and the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business offers CEOs access to an exclusive peer-to-peer Fellows Network focused on ongoing problem solving, development and mentorship in addition to the intensive program.
“We are thrilled that Shane Mayes from Onshore Outsourcing is one of the select group of entrepreneurs selected to complete the 2018 QuantumShift program,” said Brian Hughes, national leader, KPMG LLP’s Private Markets Group. “We welcome Shane into this exclusive fellowship of high-growth business leaders and hope that the week-long program will have a long-lasting positive impact on the participating founders and CEOs, and the companies they lead.”
“The QuantumShift program recognizes the achievements of high-growth entrepreneurs who are at the top of their game, and helps them lay a groundwork for the future,” said Stewart Thornhill, executive director of the Zell Lurie Institute at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. “We’re looking forward to working with Shane Mayes and Onshore Outsourcing, and we are excited to see what they accomplish.”
