ISG Named to 2017 Circle of Excellence

Earns Outstanding Business Achievement Award in A/E Industry by PSMJ Resources, Inc.


July 26, 2017 (Mankato, Minnesota) ISG recently earned, again, PSMJ Resources, Inc.’s (PSMJ) 2017 Circle of Excellence award.  Seventy-three firms ranked among the top 20% in the A/E industry per a benchmarking survey, and of the awarded firms that agreed to have their name published, ISG was the only Minnesota-based multi-disciplinary firm that received the coveted designation.


PSMJ’s Circle of Excellence Award is designed to highlight firms that are successfully managed and demonstrate outstanding achievements in overall performance categories that are outlined in the industry benchmarking survey, with business development, staff growth, and turnover being pivotal areas for review. Only four firm’s within ISG’s physical footprint made the published list, with ISG holding the most robust, in-house, multi-disciplinary team and Midwest offices that cover Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, with clients nationwide.


“Paraphrasing PSMJ Founder and CEO’s recent Circle of Excellence award quote, top-performing firms think and act differently, and aren’t defined by geography, size, or services.  ISG has always defined our own destiny, pushing boundaries that have allowed us to be intimately tied to our clients and their operations,” notes Chad Surprenant, ISG President | CEO. “Market expertise, to us, is defined by our ingenuity and comprehensive solutions not metrics, and the growth of our professionals continues to drive innovation,” states Chad.


“Talent and client engagement are key focal areas for our firm, and earning the 2017 Circle of Excellence award only furthers our commitment to such areas,” exclaims Chad.
