In the late ‘90s, Michael E. Locher, an industry visionary and forward-thinker, began his business plan for Enterprise Integration, believing he could provide world-class network and security operations with a proactive services foundation to revolutionize a very much costly, painful and reactive IT component of local and national businesses. He left his corporate technology job, where he had enjoyed great success, winning more than 30 performance awards, and opened the doors of EI in 1998 with a plan and a prayer.
Michael maintained his extensive client relationship base, a handful of loyalists and a clear idea of what he wanted EI to be – a service-based, IT solutions provider built on relationships, integrity and commitment. The company persevered through all of the typical (and some not so typical) trials and tribulations of a new business, through both good and tough times, always keeping in the forefront the vision: creating a proactive approach to IT.
A decade and a half later, EI is an industry leader in IT Managed Services with a strong vision and leadership team and a proven history of success. EI provides proactive IT solutions to all types of clients – from the local non-profit to the Fortune 500 company with locations around the globe. We are partnered with industry leaders: Microsoft Gold Partner, Citrix Access Solution Provider, Cisco Premier Partner and we are a member of the MSP (Managed Service Provider) Alliance.
Because of Michael’s insight, vision and dedication as well as the support and tireless efforts of the team he hand-selected to guide the company, he has grown the business from an office of 5 people to 240 employees with a bright future for the organization and its customers.
