President and CEO, FM Webmasters, LLC
When creativity and resourcefulness cross paths with an enterprising
spirit, attaining success is expected, but a rapid ascent to the the
top of one’s field might be surprising. This couldn’t be more true for
Bartel Welch, president and CEO of FMWebmasters, LLC. What started out
as a hobby three years ago, has grown into a lucrative business
“[The] first year, I was working out of my bedroom; [the] second year I
moved into a 1,100-square-foot building; and [the] third year we moved
into a 6,500-square-foot building,” he reveals.
As one third of 360 Media Group, FMWebmasters is a full-service
printing, graphic, and Web design company. Their competitive edge lies
heavily in the fact that they use the latest technology to offer their
clients superior products to elevate their business image. They also
have the ability to do all printing onsite, whereas other companies
often outsource their work.
Due to the vast increase in business, the opportunity to venture into
other markets has presented itself as a very real component within the
next two years. He’s planning to franchise offices in Atlanta, Miami
and Las Vegas.
“It’s starting with our new online ordering system that we’re about to
put up,” he explains. “Once that’s up, it’s on the Internet and anybody
can order from anywhere at anytime.” With the new system in place,
Welch believes that it will only be a matter of time before his company
is fully operational on a national level. –jayana black
