For the 3rd Consecutive Year, LPR Global is Awarded SMBA Premium Consulting Services Provider Status


Toronto, Ontario, February 12, 2013 – LPR Global, Inc. announced today that, for the third consecutive year, it has won the prestigious SMBA Premium Consulting Services Provider award. The award, given by South Korea’s Small & Medium Business Administration (, recognizes exemplary performance in revenue and customer satisfaction. In 2013, only eight firms worldwide earned the SMBA award. Toronto-based LPR Global is the only North American firm to hold the honour.

The designation of SMBA Premium Consulting Services Provider certifies LPR Global to provide sales and marketing, professional and advisory services to South Korea’s leading technology and manufacturing companies.

The SMBA mandate is to support Korean small to medium sized companies’ growth, technical development, export and overseas partnerships. The SMBA is a South Korean federal government program that funds and advocates for companies, like LPR, that help small and medium manufacturers in Korea grow in competitive global markets.

The SMBA noted that LPR Global’s US Korea Hotlink ( program continues to offer an effective and high-value avenue to reach a diverse, global business-to-business customer base. The proprietary Hotlink program offers an online/offline marketing platform for emerging high tech South Korean manufacturers. The SMBA was also impressed by LPR’s Automotive Industry Consortium project from 2012. The SMBA noted LPR’s dedication and continued success with the project and elected to fund it in 2013.

With product sales in over 25 countries and clients that include Global 1000 firms and government agencies, LPR Global continues to stand out a leader in the field of international consultancy. “We’re happy to see a number of Korean exporters grow bigger with the help and support of LPR Global,” stated Soon Chul Kim, Vice Administrator, SMBA.

Winning the award for the third year in a row solidifies LPR Global’s position as a dominant international trade consulting firm. Mikah Lee, LPR Global CEO, suggests this multi-award winning success does come with a challenge: “We must work harder than ever to maintain our standard of excellence.”
