We’re Elevating the Unique Narrative of Middle-Market Businesses
Hello! Jack Sweeney here, founder of Middle-Market Executive. When we first launched Middle-Market Executive, we had little idea of the vastness of the undertaking to which we were dedicating ourselves. However, we did know that if we spoke to enough middle-market business owners, CEOs, CFOs, and top talent officers, we would soon unearth some common ground on which to better engage, inspire, and guide you.
Along the way, we had a few moments of insight that have led us to the world of mobile content. Our thought was that emerging technologies could help us to share the lessons of these middle-market business leaders, but do so in their actual voices. Going forward, Middle-Market Executive would become home to an ever-expanding group of middle-market business leaders determined to contribute their stories to a larger collective narrative for the middle market — a narrative that is finally exposing the critical role that middle-market firms play in the world economy.
Middle-Market Executive specializes in mobile content designed for on the go business leaders tasked with opening a new chapter of growth for their firms.

It’s no secret that middle-market firms adapt more aggressively and innovate more nimbly than firms many times their size. However, what is not widely known is that middle market-firms create more jobs than Fortune 500 companies. And yet, in the realm of employment these companies are less visible and vastly less reported upon than their publicly-owned brethren, but their combined influence is large and growing larger as a new era of workforce innovation arrives.
In the age of the millennial workforce, people want to feel that they’re a part of something larger than themselves and that their work isn’t just a job but a meaningful experience. Here too middle-market firms can be counted among industry’s foremost innovators. While larger companies aren’t always effective at making employees feel that their work has a purpose, many middle-market firms – keenly aware of how business and markets are changing — are rethinking and retooling the way they inspire and retain employees.
