Audrey Burke never thought she’d lead an IT consultancy firm. She had served over 20 years as an advocate for children with disabilities, leading the New Hampshire Branch of the International Dyslexia Association. She was ready to tackle a new challenge. With experience realizing projects from idea through implementation to completion, as well as her adept management skills, her new challenge would present itself at the dinner table one evening.
Audrey’s husband, Bill, and their son, Shawn, both worked for IT solutions providers. They’d often share knowledge, debate best practices, and trade war stories from particularly difficult problems they’d been asked to solve. But what frustrated them both the most was the disconnect there seemed to be between IT departments and the C-suite. With new technologies emerging daily, why didn’t more companies take full advantage of the capabilities these technologies offered? What if companies had a partner that could understand their goals and show them how to leverage tech to achieve those goals? What if the IT staff had an ally that spoke their language, understood their concerns and could help them show the C-suite the impact IT can have on the bottom line?
Audrey recognized the opportunity, recruited Bill and Shawn, and set off to make their vision a reality.
