Established in 1996 as the first US based company of the Vanderburg brothers, IBP operated as a custom, third party publishing firm. The introduction of the European publishing concept into the United States allowed for the quick and successful establishment as the premier third party publishing firm. With first year revenue of $ 600,000, IBP quickly grew by becoming the preferred vendor for Harley Davidson, General Motors, Panasonic and over 50 other Fortune 100 companies through the end of 2003 with annual revenues of 2 million plus.
Having established best practices for the US market for Fortune 500 companies, we continued the Publishing strategy by creating new companies for Sports Organizations (PGA/IRL etc), Port and Airports, Convention and Visitor bureaus and Chamber of Commerces. Each of those specific clients required local and specialized entities which led to formation of the next group of companies.
