Starting with just two brothers, Cornerstone.IT has grown into a multimillion-dollar company with four locations in the U.S.
On January 15, 2018, Cornerstone Information Technologies, LLC (Cornerstone.IT) will hit an important milestone – 15 years in business as a trusted IT solutions provider for numerous companies throughout the country. Cornerstone.IT began when brothers Jim and Tommy Moreo decided to start their own IT firm, and, with the help of Operations Manager Neil Failla, they have steadily grown into a multimillion-dollar IT services company that employs people both in the U.S. and the Philippines.
“When we first started, we were warned that 90% of all businesses fail within the first five years,” Co-Founder and Principal Jim Moreo recalls. “But, when we got to the five-year mark, we realized we were doing pretty well. By ten years, we were fine-tuning our expertise. Now, at fifteen, we have a reputable brand and are recognized as a thought leader in the industry.”
Through client references, partnerships, and an excellent reputation, Cornerstone.IT has managed to gain clients and grow its business from one office in New York to offices in Philadelphia, Washington D.C., and Los Angeles, along with support staff in the Philippines. Offering everything from consulting services and implementation, to 24/7 monitoring and maintenance, Cornerstone.IT provides their clients with a full range of services and expertise that is unparalleled.
One of the key reasons for their success is their 90% rate of employee retention. With the theory that happy employees make better consultants, Tommy has developed a business model that ensures Cornerstone.IT attracts the finest talent in the IT industry.
“We have revolutionized our hiring, onboarding, and training methodologies to develop a structure that has created tremendous growth and success in our business,” Tommy explains. “For example, with our 90-day onboarding process, we regularly provide every new employee with constructive feedback that assesses their progress, reviews what they have learned, and determines where improvement is needed. Our non-technical training is also a unique aspect of our business. Employees receive a blend of training and feedback, which includes emotional intelligence and leadership training, 360° feedback, and weekly communications, thereby increasing each employee’s likelihood of success in all areas of their work.”
Not only does the client history speak for itself, but Cornerstone.IT is regularly recognized by INC Magazine – placing on their prestigious 5000 list, five out of the last seven years, along with receiving numerous other industry awards.
“We have great employees, a great company culture, and a wonderful client base,” says Jim. “Tommy and I are very proud of what we’ve created. We have incredibly smart and dedicated engineers, and our loyal clients are our biggest advocates. We’ve really hit our stride and are now recognized nationally as legal technology experts.”
Cornerstone.IT recognizes that their success is also thanks to their partners – Citrix, iManage, Cisco, VMware, and Microsoft – that have a similar culture of building products and servicing their clients. Their shared dedication to their clients and desire to put their needs first has been of great benefit.
As Cornerstone.IT continues to grow, Jim and Tommy vow to continue to focus on outstanding client service and company culture. They continue to nurture their business, with a mission to provide exceptional IT services to clients so they can operate worry-free.
