Employees credit success at GDS International to many reasons

Talk to any employee who has worked at GDS International and you will find them voice the same opinion about a career with GDS. ‘Satisfying’, ‘a great work atmosphere’, ‘fantastic opportunities’, ‘rewarding career’ et cetera are a few of the common things that almost all employees speak of.

Founded by Spencer Green, GDS International is among the top events and publishing companies across the globe today and thanks to its reputation attracts top talents at universities who dream of starting their career with the company.

Alex Sobol, 24, was one such ambitious graduate who had high hopes for a great career. Having done his graduation at The University of Delaware, Alex began a career with GDS on June 4th, 2007 and today he feels that he could not have scripted his life any better.

Alex had always wanted to work in an energetic work environment that appreciates hard-work and dedication and today he is more than glad that he found GDS.

“When I came in for my interview with GDS in March of 2007, I was really taken back by the atmosphere in the office. Every single person I was introduced too – every project I was informed about – topped off with a very specific game plan during my interview, all made working for GDS an easy decision.”

Alex was made part of one of the most progressive and ambitious projects of the company which was headed by the office’s top sales manager. Today, as his anniversary with the company approaches, Alex has this to say “As my one-year anniversary with the company approaches, I have enjoyed the opportunity of managing my first industry focused strategy summit for GDS. This experience has been absolutely amazing. I now have the privilege of managing and directing new members of the company, which has been very rewarding. I believe that my success so far with GDS is for many reasons. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some of the most seasoned sales professionals in the world. I have met some of the most well-known industry executives on the continental United States, and I’m in a situation where there is always room to grow. I never imagined I’d enjoy my first job out of school this much.”


About Spencer Green

Spencer Green founded GDS Publishing Ltd in October 1993 to specialise in industrial, government-led publications for the burgeoning Chinese market. The company launched over forty business-to-business titles, was name-checked alongside Tony Blair on China’s national news as ‘best for Chinese business’, and – following a move into India – deemed to be ‘of national importance’ by the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade. In 1998, GDS Publishing became GDS International and launched its first conference, Enterprise China. The hugely successful Enterprise series of conferences was rolled out across China and Latin America in the next two years. In 2000, GDS International launched its first Senior Executive Summit under the ‘Next Generation’ banner. This became the catalyst for nine years of 25% year-on-year growth... and 40% growth in 2010. In 2011, GDS held over 70 Summits for C-level Executives from a wide range of industries and across the globe, and eight digital marketing conferences. Today, GDS International is determined to become the world’s no. 1 business-to-business media and services company. It’s going to be an exciting journey! Spencer is married to Emily. They have two children, Finlay and Maya, and live in Bristol, UK.
