What has fueled your company’s growth?

Satisfied clients who have referred us on to other companies and the hiring of experience IT consultants who have a track record of delivering successful projects in this area.

What is the biggest obstacle to your company’s growth?

Locally, large clients tend to have exclusive vendor list which limits their ability to use new and better vendors.

Do you plan any changes in your company in the upcoming months?

We have launched a new sister comapny, Valiant Health, which will offer software solutions to the healthcare industry. For Valor, we will continue on our current strategy which is to find and hire the finest IT consultants and utilize them at our client partners who are doing exciting and important projects.

Who are the business people, locally or nationally, whom you admire? And what traits do those people exhibit that make you admire them?

Locally, I’ve learned quite a lot from Terri Bernacchi who started and followed through on building an exciting technology company here in Milwaukee; IHS, Inc. now part of IMS Health. In general, I admire people who successfully do what they probably shouldn’t even try. Risk taking is the foundation of our country.

What is the outlook for the business conditions of your industry over the next several months?

We believe the outlook is very good for business conditions. Companies have begun to look at strategic initiatives which are probably overdue at this point. Being somewhat leery of adding additional headcount in this environment, many are looking for outside partners to help them bring these solutions to market quickly.

What is your company’s key strategy for rising out of the recession?

Good people + Great Execution = Great Value. I think this strategy works; recession or no recession.
