We’re 10 years old! Thanks, Sean, for making it all happen!

Yup, itgroove is 10 years old!  You’ll see lots on our various blogs as well as our website about the anniversary so I won’t drone on about it here.  But I do want to single out and commend Sean for having the stamina to sweat it out over the years in order for us to get to this milestone.

I joined itgroove 5 years ago on October 1, 2008 and roughly a month later the economy went into the toilet.  Many company owners would have simply “cut and run” and ejected the most recently hired staff and/or everyone but the absolute essential core.  Not Sean (bless him)!  He gritted his teeth and dug in, as did the rest of us, and working as a team we grew the business even during bad economic conditions.  That is not an easy thing to do and, for a business owner, it has to be a pretty harrowing experience.  I mean it ‘s not just his mortgage that’s at stake, it’s everyone’s (metaphorically speaking)!!

Sean set the rhythm (he’s a drummer, don’t ya know) and the rest of us filled in the rest of the score and here we are, a thriving, buzzing, happening organization of 10 persons ready to write the next 10 year’s of itgroove’s history.

So thanks, Boss!  You’ve created something pretty special here and I thank you for letting me be a part of it (and for having the enduring grace to let me remain part of it even when we are at loggerheads).  I can hardly wait to see where the next 10 years takes itgroove.  One thing is for sure, the journey will NOT be boring!
