ITP Celebrates 15 Years Serving Wisconsin Businesses
We couldn’t have done it without you. Your support as our clients and partners, our advocates and our lifeblood, means the world to us.
Thank you for playing a feature role in our story.
Fifteen years – a Milestone for any Company
This month, ITP celebrates 15 years of serving as trusted technology translators for businesses in Wisconsin. What started as a two-man shop in 2003, has blossomed into an operation of over 50 people spread across three Wisconsin cities. It is incredible to see how far we’ve come in this time, and even more so – the growth that has happened in just the last few years. We are honored to have been listed on the Inc. 5000 for three consecutive years (with a fourth hopefully on the way #fingerscrossed) and we were recognized as a Rising Star during our first year as a Microsoft partner, positioning us to be one of their key partners in the state of Wisconsin.
As part of our 15th-anniversary celebrations, we have sent stickers to our clients, vendors, customers, friends, and family in the hopes that you’ll help us take over Wisconsin, one sticker at a time!
But it’s not just stickers, we want to up the ante! If you share a sticker photo/video on your social media channels and include #StickITpros, you’ll be entered for a chance to win 15th-row tickets to see the Wisconsin Badgers kick off the season in style, on Friday, August 31st.
What are you waiting for? Go and plaster your stickers on your computer, on a wall, on a light post, on your coffee mug, basically anywhere, and then snap a photo. And make sure to use the hashtag #StickITPros
As part of our celebration, we also want to focus on continuing to be a positive influence on our community. With that in mind, we’ve set up a donation goal for “Reach a Child,” a local charity that hosts a kickball tournament we’ve participated in the past few years. The Reach a Child team collects and provides books and backpacks to help First Responders comfort children-in-crisis. In these high-stress and emotional situations, a distraction can have a huge impact, and together, we can too.
Our goal is to raise $1,500 to help celebrate our 15 years of business, so any contribution is appreciated. And what’s more…anything you donate will be matched by our CEO, Paul Hager!* So, break out those pocketbooks, dust off your checkbook, or if you want to do it the digital way, perhaps just reach for the plastic.
A Trip Down Memory Lane
Speaking of Paul, how did he lead the ITP team to three straight Inc. 5000 list appearances?
In 2008, a new UW-Madison college graduate, Paul Hager, joined a Madison law firm, where he worked as a paralegal – making copies, setting appointments and doing odd jobs here and there, including leading a technology upgrade. The technology project went a little bit sideways, but the integrity that the outsourced IT firm showed made a lasting impression on Hager. He decided to join this small IT company serving law firms in Wisconsin, and the resulting synergy and comradery between the early employees was undeniably positive. Just four years later, Hager bought the IT company and has since lead the team to new levels of success and recognition.
Here’s to another 15 years!
