Innovative Learning Group snags new clients, hires

The Innovative Learning Group growth machine continues to chug along at a steady pace. The downtown Royal Oak-based company has hired two people over the last year, expanding its staff to a dozen employees and a handful of independent contractors. It expects to hire another 2-3 people in 2012.

“As we continues to grow I would be real happy with 10-15 percent growth each year,”  says Lisa Toenniges, CEO of Innovative Learning Group.

What’s driving growth? The addition of new clients. The company, which creates a curriculum for firms to teach employees to be more productive and efficient, has recently added three new clients, such as Wolverine Worldwide.

Innovative Learning Group is on pace to hits its revenue growth goal of 20 percent this year. The firm has consistently hit double-digit growth goals and expects that continue as it does it again this year.

“We’ll easily hit that target if not exceed it,” Toenniges says.
