Thursday, June 15, 2017
Corp! Magazine recognized Relapath as a 2017 Michigan Economic Bright Spot Award winner. We thank our valued customers and exceptional employees for making this possible. This award is a symbol of our core belief that if you honor your employees and do whatever it takes to address your customer's needs, the foundation for a successful business is built. Congratulations to all that made this possible.
Relapath is an information technology consulting firm that helps clients align technology solutions with the strategic direction of their business. With 50 Michigan employees, it provides information technology managed services, program management, enterprise custom application development, mobile and connected vehicle solutions. Primarily servicing Fortune 1000 clients located throughout Michigan and Ohio, it also has satellite locations in Florida and Texas. "We focus on only hiring the top talent to serve our customer base", said Robert Kennedy, president. "While many firms exist that will strive to meet every customer need, our goal is to identify those very difficult technology obstacles our customers face and work with them to solve those challenges with some of the best technologists in the industry." The company has experienced better than tenfold growth in the past year. "We held to our principle that we would only focus on those customer needs that required top talent, keeping our reputation intact, and were able to hire approximately 50 very experienced technology professionals to meet the demand", Kennedy said. Many startups in Michigan are doing interesting things, and while Kennedy says that's exciting, it's also straining the pool of available technology resources in the job market. "We need to be able to draw more people to Michigan", he said.
