Wednesday, April 04, 2018


WEST POINT, NY, March 2, 2018 (BUSINESS WIRE) – Training Industry announced its annual Top 20 Leadership Training Companies List for 2018, with the Thayer Leader Development Group at West Point (TLDG) recognized for the second year in a row as a Watch List company. Training Industry continually monitors the training marketplace for the best providers of training services and technologies. 

“We are delighted to be recognized as one of Training Industry’s top 40 Leader Development Companies for 2018,” said Dan Rice, President, TLDG. “In 2017, TLDG experienced exponential growth with many Fortune 2000 companies in the automotive, financial services, healthcare and manufacturing industries.  By leveraging our diverse offerings including our customized, open enrollment, and online learning programs and developing strategic sustainment efforts, we are creating beneficial long-term relationships that deliver results.”  

“When I went through [TLDG], it was pretty amazing to just see how people just react differently,” described Mike Fucci, Chairman of the Board, Deloitte.  “They open up their vulnerabilities. They listen differently. Even board members who think they know everything listened differently… and I will tell you, that experience created the board.  The teamwork that was created there was amazing. And it lasted. It is 18 months ago. It’s still lasting.”

 “In both 2017 and again in 2018, our award-winning publication, Training Industry Magazine, ranked TLDG as one of the Top 40 companies in leadership development in the world,” provided Doug Harward, CEO of Training Industry.  “Recognition into this exclusive list of companies is based on the quality of their learning products and services, innovation and thought leadership in their field, and market penetration and success with top companies in the world.”  

This award comes on the heels of a series of awards and partnerships for TLDG.  In early 2018, TLDG announced a partnership with Chief Executive Group that includes exclusive thought leadership editorial content and co-hosting the 2018 CEO Talent Summit at West Point in the fall.  Additionally, TLDG’s headquarters and host for on-site programs, the Historic Thayer Hotel was recently recognized as the #3 hotel in New York State and Mid-Atlantic Region by Conde Nast magazine and certified by the International Association of Conference Centers.
