Mike Hadley and Chris Stephenson started iCorps eighteen years ago with a part-time business called Off-Hours Consulting. The success of the venture rapidly changed to a full-time business with a new name: iCorps Technologies. iCorps (pronounced eye’-kor) represents the two main focuses of the business:
- Comprehensive Information Services: The lowercase “i” in a blue sphere is the international symbol for information
- The People: The word “corps” represents not only the unparalleled team of customer-oriented IT professionals that the company employs, but also the partnerships and enduring customer relationships that drive the company’s success
Today, iCorps is a dynamic, privately held IT consulting firm. It is ranked in the Boston Business Journal as one of the 25 largest IT consulting companies. Mike and Chris remain at the helm of this growing firm – a company that proudly continues to embody the high standards, expertise, ethics, intense customer focus, and comprehensive IT services offerings on which the company was founded.
On a Mission
As any good mission statement should, ours outlines iCorps’ overall goals. It also embodies our philosophy, which has guided us successfully for 18 years:
The creativity, vast knowledge, and integrity of our hardworking iCorps team of professionals have helped make technology fit the businesses of literally thousands of clients over our past 18 years in business. Our long list of referenceable customers continues to “spread the word” about our IT services, our highly regarded employees, and our singular focus on helping clients achieve their business objectives by delivering and supporting practical, cost-effective IT services and IT solutions.
Our customers – and our reputation – depend on our depth of expertise across multiple technologies and disciplines. We purposely hire the best talent that we can find. An iCorps professional combines deep-seeded technical knowledge and experience with a customer-oriented outlook that promotes trust and builds solid relationships. In order to retain such top-level talent, we strive to maintain a healthy working environment for our employees that fosters creativity, integrity, growth and teamwork—to be the kind of company people are proud to work for.
