Chicago Technologies was launched in 1998 by Chris Fuller, Tom Cox, and Rick Sternquist. As alumni of Ernst & Young's Great Lakes Management Consulting Practice in Chicago, they found that they possessed many of the same qualities and interests: an entrepreneurial spirit, leadership skills, uncompromisable integrity, and a desire to use their technical skills to maximize how their clients utilize technology. Since 1998, they have assembled a high performance team of consultants who are attracted by the mission and spirit of the firm.
”I have worked with the principals of Chicago Technologies on various projects involving commercial print estimating,
billing, and order entry over the past 15 years or so. Of all the IT professionals I have worked with, I found them to be the best.“
