Theresa Ghafari President and CEO G-Tech Services, Inc.
When you talk to Theresa Ghafari about what she has achieved, she is noticeably humble. Yet, by any measure, her determination, vision and sheer bravery are more than exceptional.
For someone starting a business, the barriers Theresa faced in 1988 don't get much tougher.
After losing her husband in Lebanon's civil war and with no English skills, Theresa immigrated to Detroit to join her mother and siblings with just $500 in her pocket and two teenage sons.
Today, Theresa heads G-TECH Services, Inc., which specializes in the recruitment and placement of engineering, IT, finance and accounting professionals and has an annual turnover of $53 million.
"When my brother presented the idea to me, I was very honest and told him that I was scared to death to accept the challenge," she admits.
But in the first six months, she was able to generate enough income to make a living. From that point on, G-TECH's growth has been constant.
"I worked by myself as a single woman for three years to bring the revenues up to three million dollars in the first three years. And that's when I added my very first staff member, who is still with me today," Theresa says.
She quickly developed a reputation for integrity and won the support of major companies, like Ford Motor Company.
"My very first customer was Ford. I'm sitting here today because I was nominated by Ford for this honor, for which I am so grateful," she says. "One of my strengths is building relationships; I'm a firm believer in establishing solid partnerships with my clients and I cannot thank Ford enough for their loyalty over the years."
More than once, Ford (MSXI) has ranked G-TECH #1 in customer satisfaction. Theresa says she is really living the American Dream. "It is amazing. This is truly the land of opportunity," she says.
Her elder son now has two Masters degrees and works for an oil company in Texas. Her younger son has a business degree and manages the Middle East operations of her brother's architecture / engineering practice. Theresa is rightly proud of their achievements. When her elder son was asked by the CEO of his company to name his business role model, his answer was "my mom."
Theresa's business advice reflects her pragmatic approach to life. She says any ambitious entrepreneur should surround themselves with smart people.
"It is okay if they are smarter than you," she says. "Listen to them.
And Theresa is looking forward - G-TECH now has three offices and 625 professionals working in 12 states, producing revenue of $53 million.
"I would love to be at $100 million. It can be achieved," she says.
