Deloitte’s Tom McGee talks about the middle market in an article for Forbes. The success of middle market companies stems from their ability to be nimble, McGee states. Operational costs tend to be lower, and smaller companies have greater flexibility and hands-on management. McGee said many mid-market companies also tend to be entrepreneurial, a positive point highlighted by another Deloitte survey that showed that entrepreneurial mid-market companies experience greater worker productivity and generate higher profit margins. “All of this evidence, in my view, points to a cross-section of the economy that is most likely to explode once our nation’s economy starts to shift to its potential growth rate,” McGee argues.
