  COO Gary Cornwell Quoted in March 2011 Meetings Focus


Galactic COO, Gary Cornwell, was quoted in the article "Revving Them Up," in the March 2011 issue of Meetings Focus. When asked if he saw an uptick for the incentive industry in the year ahead, Gary replied, 

"We have seen our group size start to increase again, although we’re still doing the same amount of trips. Our participant counts—and money spent per trip—slipped during the bad economy. It’s now starting to go back up. People are heading back in the right direction. They know that incentives are their way of trumping the competition. Everyone wants to be the first to rev people up."

  From the COO


I've been Galactic's chief operating officer for three years now, but I've worked here for 11 years. I've seen a lot of change, I've seen a lot of improvement, and I see a very bright future.


As I meet new people both in the industry and out, I'm constantly asked, "Just who is Galactic and what do you do?" So, I wanted to take a little time to answer that question. I want to tell you a little bit about how we started, who we are, what we do now and where we're going.

First, Galactic is a 19-year-old full-service incentives and performance solutions provider. We were started by a man who recognized that there needed to be a better way to provide a competitive edge to growing companies. Our birth came from the food distribution industry, where we cut our teeth on vendor funded travel incentives for food service and c-store distribution centers. Galactic was started with the idea that people do business with people, and that there had to be a better way to motivate people and increase sales within organizations.


Galactic now resides in a five building campus complex in Arlington, Texas, adjacent to the Texas Rangers Stadium, and less than a quarter-mile from the new Dallas Cowboys stadium. Executive management for Galactic sits on the advisory boards of half a dozen major hotel chains worldwide as well as major cruise ship lines.


So, now that you know who we are, let me tell you what we do. It's very simple. We help our customers win! We provide solutions for our clients that increase performance or reduce cost, or both, and we do it on a world-class level. We now have clients in the pharmaceutical, home building, insurance, marketing, manufacturing, high-tech solutions, transportation, distribution, finance, broadcasting and engineering arenas, just to name a few.


Galactic provides full-service solutions for all of your incentive needs, whether that be a group travel program, individual incentive travel, training applications, data tracking and reporting, or loyalty programs. We have a full-service line of merchandise available, and we develop programs that enable our clients to reach wide within their organization, to maximize return on investment; which can be massive when there is no actual cost to the client.


Where is Galactic going? We continue to develop ways to streamline processes with our clients, thereby increasing their profitability. We rely heavily on technical advances to stay ahead of the curve and enable our clients to be front-runners in their prospective industries. As we expand our product mix to accommodate the ever changing world we live in, and the difficult economy that we all face, we continue to grow as many around us are shrinking or simply dying on the vine.


Galactic truly is your one-stop shop for performance enhancement and all of your incentive needs. As we strive to offer the best customer service in the industry, and improve on our already impeccable record, we take pride in the fact that our company slogan is actually a proven statement.


Galactic IS beyond the ordinary!
