How would you describe a company that has achieved mastery in a particular field?
I feel that, even though 'master' gets the message through, it doesn't work very well in a business context.
I'm searching for a meaning like 'established', but I would prefer a noun so that it has a marketing feel to it, to be able to form sort phrases that sound good, like what I try to achieve in the examples below.
The focus has to be on the know-how and applications, not on the pioneering/ leading/ innovation side of things.
This company is a 'Master' of Consulting.
Microsoft is a software 'Master'.
English is my second language so your perspective is crucial! Any suggestions or insights you may have will be of great help.
