Phoenix Partner Success Stories

    Phoenix Testimonials


      Immedia joined Accelerent in September 2016 and quickly aligned with several Accelerent Partners who target similar clients and projects. In one 5 months period we have identified more than $2 million of new opportunities and received contracts for more than $1 million of new work. It is hard to quantify the amount of business that we have referred, however, we have had several people on our sales team that have invited Accelerent Partners to attend joint sales calls and both companies have gotten traction from cross selling. A few of our best clients have begun working with Accelerent Partners.

      Noelle Pikus Pace

      2014 Sochi Winter Olympics skeleton silver medalist, 26 time world cup medalist, 2 time world champion

      In 2014, Noelle was awarded the US Olympics iconic “Moment of the Games” when she jumped into the stands to embrace her family after winning the Olympic Silver Medal in the sport of skeleton. It was not an easy road for Noelle to reach her success, having to face seemingly insurmountable obstacles along the way. As the #1 skeleton racer in the world in 2005, she was hit by a bobsled in a tragic accident that cost her her spot in the 2006 Torino games. Through hard work, hope and determination, Noelle made a comeback the following year to become the 1st American woman to win World Championships, and she did it by the largest margin in the history of the sport. She went on to compete in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, before earning the silver medal in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Noelle is a 26x world cup medalist, 2x world champion, MBA, author, mom of 4 kids and creator of Mindset Minute.

      Commander Kirk Lippold

      Commander of the USS Cole when it came under a suicide terrorist attack by al Qaeda in the port of Aden, Yemen

      Commander Kirk Lippold, USN (Ret.) was the Commanding Officer of the USS Cole when it came under a suicide terrorist attack by al Qaeda in the port of Aden, Yemen. During his command, he and his crew distinguished themselves by saving the American war ship from sinking. This event is widely recognized as one of the most brazen acts of terrorism by al Qaeda prior to September 11, 2001. With this unique and invaluable experience, Commander Lippold has briefed over 5,000 military officers and given over 200 presentations on this seminal event in the war on terrorism.

      Commander Kirk Lippold's assignments prior to the USS Cole included Executive Officer of USS SHILOH, an Aegis-class guided missile cruiser. His department head tour was unique in his assignment to the crew that commissioned USS Arleigh Burke, the Navy's first Aegis guided missile destroyer. He served as the Operations Officer responsible for the training and operation of a next generation $1 billion warship with a crew of over 300 Sailors. He had two division officer assignments, which included a tour on USS Yorktown, an Aegis class guided missile cruiser. There, he completed a lengthy seven and a half month deployment to the Mediterranean, where he participated in the Achille Lauro aircraft seizure, Black Sea Freedom of Navigation operations against the Soviet Union, and Attain III combat operations in the Gulf of Sidra off Libya that followed several Libyan sponsored terrorist attacks in Europe. His initial division officer tour was in USS Fairfax County, a tank landing ship, where he completed a deployment to Beirut, Lebanon, in support of the US Marine Corps and the Multinational Peacekeeping Force when terrorists attacked the American Embassy and severely damaged it.

      Commander Kirk Lippold is a graduate of the US Naval Academy, and received his commission in the Navy in 1981. He attended the Navy Postgraduate School from 1987 to 1989 where he received a Masters of Science in Systems Engineering (Joint Command, Control and Communications). He is a 1994 graduate of the United States Army Command and General Staff College and is also a 2001 graduate of the Joint Forces Staff College. He has also served as the Administrative Aide to the Secretary of the Navy. He recently served on the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Directorate for Strategic Plans and Policy (J-5), where he was instrumental in crafting detainee policy for the war on terrorism during its initial stages following the 9/11 attacks. His last assignment was in the International Strategy Division in the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations (N5IS).

      Commander Kirk Lippold's personal awards include the Defense Superior Service Medal, Legion of Merit (three awards), Meritorious Service Medal (three awards), Combat Action Ribbon, Navy Commendation Medal (two awards), Joint Service Achievement Medal, Navy Achievement Medal (two awards), in addition to various campaign and service ribbons.

      Currently, Commander Lippold is the president of Lippold Strategies, LLC, a consulting firm specializing in executive leadership development, strategic planning and training programs, and crisis management. He is also the author of Front Burner – Al Qaeda’s Attack on the USS Cole, which recounts the story of Al Qaeda's bombing of his ship on and the continuing ramifications for the war on terror.

      He serves on the Board of Directors for Military Families United, one of the nation’s premier family advocacy groups, and is a member of the Board of Advisors for Halo Maritime Defense Systems. He resides in his home state of Nevada where he is active in the future of the state and expanding opportunities for business.
