TYSONS CORNER, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 23, 2005 -- During a special press conference today, renowned business growth strategist Andrew J. Sherman launched Grow Fast Grow Right, a state-of-the-art enterprise featuring an innovative business growth curriculum backed by a "Dream Team" of thought leaders. The Grow Fast Grow Right (GFGR) organization will provide senior executives in the $5 million to $150 million range of emerging growth and middle market companies with an unprecedented array of seminar, consulting and business and technical resources. Sherman was introduced by Jim Garrettson, a local tech entrepreneur who is the founder of the Potomac Officers Club and the publisher of Executive Biz. "Andrew has helped hundreds of companies develop effective growth strategies over the past 20 years, so the launch of Grow Fast Grow Right is a natural outgrowth of his talent and experience," said Garrettson.

Sherman outlined the unique GFGR approach to a standing room only crowd of press and invited guests that included members of the GFGR Dream Team and demonstrated some of the features of the robust GFGR web site.

"Grow Fast Grow Right offers world class content that's hard-hitting and cutting edge, and based on lessons learned in working with hundreds of companies," stated Sherman, in announcing an ambitious 23-city seminar schedule for 2005-2006 that will also be offered on line through video webcasts. "Our seminars and conferences are designed to offer the most comprehensive information available on business growth strategies. They feature war stories, best practices, and 'from the trenches' type advice on a wide range of business growth topics for executives of rapid growth and middle market companies."

Sherman co-founded GFGR with seasoned executive and veteran entrepreneur William Poster. "We're excited about this launch and the extremely positive feedback we're getting from the press and the business community," remarked Poster. "There's a real need for this type of education for executives of mid-sized companies."

"When CyperRep, Inc. started working with Andrew J. Sherman, we had 40 employees and $2.8 million in sales," remarked S.Tien Wong, Co-Founder and CEO of CyberRep. "Andrew worked intimately with our leadership team over the next nine years, helped us with strategy, Board matters, legal matters, and M&A transactions. We grew to over 2100 employees and a $75 million revenue run rate at the time of the sale of our company nine years later. Andrew was instrumental in the success and growth of CyberRep."
