GTMR is proud of our talented artists and developers who excel in the creative/tech world. Here's another example as one of our own, Louis Cabanillas, and his indie game development team "Upside Down Bird" took first place at the 2018 East Coast Game Conference.
ECGC was held at Raleigh NC this year and sponsored by big game companies like: Epic Games, Insomniac, Red Storm, and even Imangi. It was a three day event in which different schools, and many other game developers came to show their work and interact with one another.
This was also Upside Down Bird’s first conference. They entered to win the Indie Game Prize which consists of $1000 and a chance to win the International Indie Game Prize at Casual Connect Europe, in London May 29-31. To their surprise, Upside Down Bird’s game, Super Gravity Ball, was selected as the winner at ECGC. "We are very excited, proud, and now working our butts off to polish another demo to show in London." said Louis.
Great job and good luck in London!

GTMR, Inc. has been named one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2017, the publication’s second annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector. Out of nearly 2,000 applicants, Inc. awarded just over 200 winning companies.
Inc.’s Best Workplaces list is a magnifying glass on how innovative companies can truly raise the bar in hiring and retaining the best talent.
''When I started here, I was told
‘You are going to LOVE working here’
and it really has been true''
“By introducing an employee survey into this year’s Best Workplaces selection process, we’ve
really raised the bar. Companies that don’t score at the very top of their peer group don’t make
the cut. So, our hats are off to the winners. They all excelled at engaging their workers, making
them feel appreciated, and aligning them behind a mission. And remember, that’s not just our
opinion: The employees told us that themselves.” says Eric Schurenberg, Inc.’s President and
Editor In Chief.
What does it take to become a company that workers want to be part of? Inc. magazine says it’s
more than good pay and good perks – it’s also about having a clear purpose, a sense of humor,
and leadership that makes the two work together.
''I feel valued''
Jim Morton, President at GTMR, Inc., describes what is unique about the organization - “Universal progress does not spring from individuals. It takes genuine commitment and sincere dedication from a united crew to do amazing things. Here at GTMR we are passionate about supporting each other, our clients, and our country. Providing innovative solutions to complicated challenges requires laser focus on the details and devotion to the project, mixed with a healthy dose of laughter and fun. Heavy on the laughter and fun. Only the best and brightest earn a spot on the GTMR team.”
''All accomplishments are celebrated
organization-wide and failures are viewed as
opportunities for improvement''
The 2017 Inc. Best Workplaces award assessed organizations based on employee engagement,
people practices, and employee responses to a unique 30-questions survey that measured career
development, communication, trust in leadership, team dynamics, and individual needs.
Competing organizations had to have positive, statistically significant response rates from
employees. GTMR was categorized as a “medium-size” organization and scored an amazing
92.99% overall. 52 out of 64 eligible employees completed the survey. GTMR was 1 of only 5
winning Engineering organizations nationally and 1 of only 7 winning organizations in Maryland.
''I am given the flexibility to make my
own decisions and often encouraged
to give my opinion''
The survey indicated that GTMR employees were willing to go above and beyond in their work,
advocate for the organization, and intend to stay far into the future.
''GTMR upholds a high level of ethical standards
that promotes future business while balancing
personal goals and situations for all employees''
While researching the entries, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes develop:
• Strong company cultures breed stunning individual and team performance.
• Workers at the best companies don’t view their employers as sugar daddies. They aren’t
mesmerized by whatever giveaways seem to be the latest fad—be it gourmet lunches or
• When employees feel valued by their organization, they are far more likely to be engaged.
This single factor proved to be one of the largest drivers of employee engagement.
''The senior leaders of GTMR
value people as their
most important resource''

Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETM development), and Logistics.

Georgia Delegation Highlights Importance of Robins Air Force Base Hosts first annual Robins Air Force Base Congressional breakfast to promote military, economic value of base
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., and David Perdue, R-Ga., along with U.S. Representatives Austin Scott, R-Ga.-08, and Sanford Bishop, D-Ga.-02, today reaffirmed their commitment to serving Robins Air Force Base at the first annual Robins Air Force Base Congressional breakfast.
The Georgia Congressional delegation members were joined at the Washington, D.C., event by leaders of Robins Air Force Base and the surrounding communities to discuss both the military and economic value of Robins Air Force Base to Georgia and our national defense. Keynote remarks were delivered by former U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss.
“Robins Air Force Base is what every community would like to have. It’s something we’ve got to make sure we protect,” said Isakson at the breakfast. “You’ve got a $1.3 billion dollar payroll, 21,000 employees and $2.75 billion dollars in economic impact. There are a lot of reasons to brag about Robins Air Force Base but none more important than to realize this is one of the crown jewels in our state. I’m committed to Robins Air Force Base and Middle Georgia.”
“We are fortunate to have some of our nation’s best and brightest headquartered in Georgia at Robins Air Force Base," said Senator Perdue. “For decades, Robins has been a critical part of the Middle Georgia community and our state’s military family. As a member of the Budget Committee and a Warner Robins native, I am committed to making sure Robins and our Georgia military bases have what they need to compete. Washington’s lack of fiscal constraint has led to $19 trillion in debt and this has directly impacted our ability to adequately fund our military and support their missions. Our military leaders should have the resources they need to successfully combat global threats, and I continue to fight to advance their needs.”
“Robins Air Force Base is an essential component to our national defense and the economic engine of middle Georgia,” said Congressman Austin Scott, member of the House Armed Services Committee. “Strong support from the community is essential to the longevity of Robins. As the House Armed Services Committee marks up the National Defense Authorization Act today, it is an honor to meet with these committed leaders of the greater Robins AFB community in Washington to discuss how we can work together towards promoting and protecting this base.”
“A critical facet of our nation’s defense structure and a valuable economic partner within Middle Georgia, Robins Air Force base is irreplaceable in many ways" said Congressman Sanford Bishop. "The tenant units of Robins Air Force Base lend real value to the Air Force's missions at home and abroad and are well placed and well suited for adaptable economic growth—a critical point highlighted today by leaders within the Robins AFB community."
More than 50 participants were in attendance at the breakfast, including Colonel Jeff King, Installation and 78th Air Base Wing commander at Robins Air Force Base, Lieutenant General Lee Levy, Air Force Sustainment Center Commander at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City, Okla., Brigadier General Joseph Jarrard, Georgia Department of Defense Adjutant General, Warner Robins Mayor Randy Toms, Centerville Mayor John Harley, as well as representatives from Robins Regional Chamber, the Houston County Commission and 21st Century Partnership. A full list of attendees is available here.
Today’s meeting follows a series of Georgia- and D.C.-based meetings with the Georgia Congressional delegation and senior Pentagon officials from each of the branches of the armed services to discuss the importance of Georgia-based equities and assets and the critical roles each play in our national defense.
Home to the Air Force Reserve Command, the 78th Air Base Wing and the fleet of Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (JSTARS), Robins Air Force Base plays a vital role in our national defense, providing support to all branches of the military throughout the world. Through its leadership in defense technology research and development at the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center, Robins Air Force Base serves as a critical backbone to the entire Department of Defense.
In addition, Robins Air Force Base employs over 21,000 and contributes over $2.75 billion to the Georgia economy annually. Robins Air Force Base and its community partners have focused on education in Middle Georgia to help shape Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) development throughout Georgia and the country.
In December 2015, Isakson and Perdue wrote to U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter requesting that funding for the Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (JSTARS) be protected in the fiscal year 2017 defense budget request.
