GE Capital and The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business released today the results of the largest ever study of American middle market businesses–defined as having revenues between $10 million and $1 billion–which showed them leading the way when it comes to viability, resilience and growth. Mike Neal, Chairman and CEO of GE Capital, said, “middle market firms are keeping local economies viable and represent the country’s strongest engine for growth and long-term success.” Middle market businesses represent a large share of GE Capital’s customers: GE helps finance and build them and is targeting $120 billion in middle market funding in 2011 in North America. Check out the chart below to explore the middle market by the numbers:
The survey results were announced at Leading From the Middle: The 2011 National Middle Market Summit at Ohio State, sponsored by GE Capital and Fisher, who are embarking on a new, multi-year partnership to research, analyze and map the middle market, including the establishment of the National Middle Market Center at Fisher.
