We help to increase and improve language access by supporting business development of language service companies (LSCs), and by supporting the implementation of language access policy by companies in a variety of industries.
Founded and led by Joshua Pennise, a seasoned executive in the language industry, The Smithson Company specializes in the business of sign language and spoken language interpreting.
Josh has spent over 20 years in the language industry as an interpreter, in management, and as an executive. He built the largest sign language interpreting business ever to exist from scratch. The success of this business was based on smart strategy and strong operational implementation.
Josh's real-world market experience is augmented by a master's in applied linguistics from Old Dominion University, and executive MBAs (in progress) from London Business School and Columbia University.
