Indianapolis Partner Success Stories


    Indianapolis Testimonials

    • WESTPOINT PRIVATE CLIENT GROUP

      When I was first approached about joining Accelerent, I was very impressed with its platform, and I am pleased that my decision to be a Partner has been most successful!

      Your group is very diligent about listening to our business needs and helping WestPoint to achieve our outlined goals. In the first six months I have added new clientele and prospects because of Accelerent introductions. These clients will help contribute to our bottom line today, and for many years to come.

      Thank you for all you do! I look forward to many more years of working together!

    • MARCIA BARNES - VALVE+METER PERFORMANCE MARKETING

      We provided more than 160 introductions in our first year alone, taking advantage of opportunities to solve clients’ issues and make ourselves look like rock stars. In return, we’ve received hundreds of introductions to date. Where we usually would expect to see 10x ROI in the B2B space, we’ve seen 50 to 70x returns through our partnerships at Accelerent.

    • JUSTIN RAMQUIST - INDIANA PACERS

      It’s a given that when we invest the time, Accelerent helps to quickly develop strong relationships in the business community, by being intentional. For us, these relationships have developed through weekly group and one on one meetings that have led to $500,000 in new business, in just a year and a half. To my surprise though, we have also seen an acceleration in the learning curve of our sales team. By investing time, asking questions and giving to our Partners in Accelerent, our reps have gained a better knowledge of how other industries operate and how relationships lead to more efficient prospecting. We also have been able to provide Accelerent Partners access to our Pacers Business Alliance, as well as, Pacers Suites that have allowed partners to generate new leads and close over $200k in new business for them.

    • MAN PHUNG - CAVALRY INSURANCE

      We joined the Accelerent Partnership with no expectations for closing new business in year one of our three year Agreement. However, we were able to achieve a 20% jump in growth from introductions made by our new Partners. In the first year, we made at least a dozen quality introductions to our Accelerent Partners. Half of those introductions were converted to new business. We were able to onboard a similar number of new clients as a result of the relationships we built with our 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.

      Founder and Director of Hope + Future Foundation whose “All In” message helped inspire the New York Giants to win the Superbowl in 2012

      Gian Paul Gonzalez is widely recognized for inspiring the New York Giants to their 2012 Super Bowl victory with the phrase “All In.”

      Gian Paul Gonzalez is widely recognized for inspiring the New York Giants to their 2012 Super Bowl victory with the phrase “All In.”Gonzalez, a high school teacher in Union City, N.J., was asked to lead a chapel service for members of the New York Giants team the night before the team’s Christmas Eve 2011 game against the New York Jets. To illustrate the concept of commitment, Gonzalez handed each football player a poker chip. Instructing the players to write their number on one side of the chip and write what they wanted to be committed to on the other side. He then shared with the team the meaning behind the poker phrase “All In”. Gian Paul inspired them to be committed and put all their “chips” on the table. He went on to urge players to fully commit to anything they take on, whether as a father, husband, son or even, a football player. The team went on to win every game, up to and including Super Bowl XLVI, where they beat the New England Patriots 21-17.

      Gian Paul Gonzalez is himself an inspiration. He was a former NCAA First Team All-American forward from Montclair State University scoring nearly 1,400 points in his 3 year career. Played in the NBA Summer League in 2007 and was offered a few professional basketball contracts, yet he turned them down in order to continue his work with at-risk youth. He is a gifted motivational speaker and is the founder of Hope + Future. This organization is dedicated to using athletics & physical fitness to share a message of hope and striving for excellence in inner-city public schools and juvenile jails.

      The Hope + Future Foundation provides opportunities for youth to proactively become empowered members of their community. Hope + Future uses extracurricular activities, events and programming to provide health, and wellness education while bridging the gaps between individual growth and improving families. This unifies communities around a common core belief that there is a hope for each child personally, academically, socially, and economically.

      “ALL IN’ is not a slogan, it’s a LIFEstyle.

      He has been featured on ESPN as well as had notable appearances on Fox News and CNN. His inspirational talks have made him an internationally renowned speaker for NBA, NFL, English Premiere League & Fortune 500 organizations.
