When you pair a high-performance sales culture with our low-cost profit-rich marketing strategies, you’ll soon be pulling in the best accounts in all lines of your business.

Here are the case studies of a few of our clients:

Adams Bank

Kevin Beckemeyer

The roll outs, the daily huddles, all of that is generating so much excitement to be together. We didn’t have that in the past. The morning huddles are just phenomenal, the positive vibes from all the folks. In the past we had people who would do their work and that was about it, having relationships with other employees was rare.

Now people are taking on leadership roles, breaking out of their shells and making things happen like you wouldn’t believe.

Adams BankGordon MajorsSince working with you, we’ve grown from $238 million to $368 million…a 54.49 percent increase, net income grew from $2.1 million to $4.1 million…a 95.2% increase, and earning assets grow from $213 million to $332 million—a 55.66 percent increase. Net interest margin increased from 3.90 to 4.32, and we’re operating with 1.25 or less past dues. We did this without growing staff. We now target only A+ credits like you taught us. We cycle several people through your “boot camp” [Profit-Growth Banking™ Summit] every year. It’s a part of who we are. You’ve taught me to take myself lightly and my results seriously.

Adams Bank

We grew 21 percent while decreasing FTEs by 11 percent and raising net interest margin 52 basis points since working with you. 100 percent of our new loan customers are referrals from current customers or centers of influence. Not a week goes by when I don’t get a call from a client complimenting my staff. I don’t even remember it happening before we made this shift. Our top 100 customers are sending business our way, and we’re not really having to work hard to get new business. And our lenders don’t even try or ask to meet the pricing of the competition. They know they’re worth more. A few years ago, they wouldn’t have believed they were worth the extra money.

Al TubbsI’ve always said that if our competitors got a hold of Roxanne’s information, we’d be in trouble. Fortunately, we found her first. Roxanne’s systems work—especially during times like these. Read interview with Al Tubbs

This is a great time of opportunity for us. Many of our competitors continue to struggle while we are having a tremendous success story… our profits are strong, our leadership team is strong, our people are engaged, and we are spending money smarter than ever before. TEG provides a great framework to allow this to happen. Instead of running traditional ads as we did for the previous 10 years with little feedback, by doing our top 100 approach we are making incredible magic happen with our customers.

Archie McDonnell, Jr.Our bank has essentially doubled in size… going from 500 million in 2001 to 1 billion today. When we started with you, we were what I would have characterized as, at best, an average performer—probably an underperformer. We also were making somewhere in the neighborhood of less than $7.6 million in net income and now we have grown to $15.6 million in pre-tax net operating income. So we doubled the bank sizemore than doubled the bank’s profit. And we’re right on top of the return on assets for high growth banks at about 1.2 percent.

Mark JohnsonWe set our goal at The Emmerich Group’s Strategic Planning Think Tank in Atlanta last year and created a tight, one-page strategic plan. As a result of that and of following the Profit- Rich Sales method you presented at that meeting, we just blew right past our goal and never looked back. Read interview with Mark Johnson

Dale BlachfordOne of the most valuable things The Emmerich Group® has taught us is to become disciplined about putting processes and systems in place. When you have a solid system, it makes execution a whole lot easier. We’ve grown from $180MM to $250MM in two years.

Patti SteeleBefore we worked with the Thank God It’s Monday!® system, we had tried many consultants and training programs with little or no improvement. Within 30 days of our Kick-Butt Kick-Off® we grew more than we had in the previous 10 years combined—35% annualized in 30 days! The growth of deposits and loans can only be described as a miracle and the profits were up 44%. Profits and ongoing growth have soared from there. The system keeps taking us further.

J.J. Blake IIIWe paid for the full three-year program in the first month with a fee from a single client by following the new sales process we learned. We then went on to replicate those same results over and over again. But the real miracle is the transformation in our workplace culture. Read interview with J.J. Blake III
