Company History


Sterling was started in the back office of a dental practice in Vacaville, California, just outside of San Francisco in March 1983. By 1985, the company had grown into a multi-million dollar organization. By July of 1986, Sterling had moved its headquarters to Glendale, California, where the company expanded even more rapidly.

By 1988, Sterling had earned the #45 spot on Inc. magazine’s list of 500 of the fastest-growing, privately-held companies in the U.S. The next year, Sterling made the Inc. 500 list again at #117. This is a feat few companies have ever achieved.

To accommodate expansion, the company purchased and moved into its own 20,000-square foot headquarters in 2007 in Glendale, California, where it continues to operate today. Sterling has always played its role on a very large scale. To date, the company has delivered management seminars to over 175,000 professionals and their staff. Sterling has also delivered over a half-million consulting hours and 70,000 management and training courses, all based on the works of L. Ron Hubbard.

Sterling has won numerous awards and recognitions since its inception.
