Two City businesses, The National System and Trivers Associates, were honored last week by Inc. Magazine and the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City in their annual ranking of the nation’s top 100 fastest-growing inner city businesses.
Trivers Associates, led by Andy Trivers, is an architectural firm founded in the City approximately three decades ago. It has remained in the City throughout its corporate existence.
NSI, led by President and CEO Mark Mantovani, is a specialized advertising and marketing agency that provides services to major corporations and their retailers, including (according to NSI’s Sharon Moore) Domino’s, Acura, Ford, Mercedes, and AB. The company purchased a building at 23rd and Locust Streets in 2003, and moved to the City from Westport with its 150+ employees in 2005. Now, the company employs 190.
Congratulations, Mark and Andy. Thanks for choosing to grow your outstanding businesses here.
