We are so excited to announce that LightEdge has officially entered its twentieth year in business! The company has come a long way since it was founded in 1996 as an Internet Service Provider in Des Moines, Iowa. Today, LightEdge serves both Midwestern and national companies from its regional office locations. Through our scalable and customized IT solutions leveraging fully redundant network, carrier neutral data centers, and our talented team of experienced engineers, we are continuing to innovate in the IT industry in 2016 and beyond.
Hear from Jim Masterson, Chief Executive Officer for LightEdge, about this exciting announcement below.
20 years in business is a huge milestone. If I had to “bottle” what has sustained us as a company and team it would start with a foundation of passion and faith in success, Midwest work ethic, and a commitment to our customers and each other as team members. We have persevered through tough times like the 2008 economic downturn. We never wavered in our vision for cloud and colocation and we got even stronger through the fire. Finally, we course adjusted when conditions demanded. I have been the CEO at LightEdge for 14 years and I can tell you definitively, that we represent an incredible company based on those characteristics. Humbly speaking, if I were a business looking for help in “crossing the chasm” from legacy IT to cloud in any form that might take, I would call LightEdge for our character, financial stability, experience in the space, and commitment to our values. Oh, don’t forget longevity!
