Successories began with Mac Anderson's lifelong passion for
collecting the quotations, creeds and motivational writings of the
world's most influential thinkers. Mac believed that these writings,
once gathered together, would be of tremendous help to motivate and
inspire others. Mac had the conviction that the right quotation, at
the right moment, could help bring one's goals into perspective.
In 1985, Mac and a small group of colleagues founded a small
company to design and produce quote books, award plaques and
customized gifts. Building on the success of these original insights,
photographic imagery was integrated to create framed motivational
artwork. In 1988, the very first catalog was developed and mailed
under the "Celebrating Excellence" masthead. The company went public
in 1990 and the first Successories retail store opened in 1991.
Today, Mac's vision continues to flourish. Each day thousands
of organizations and leaders from all walks of life demonstrate that
the use of motivational media to communicate corporate culture is an
effective organizational tool.
