CLEVELAND, OHIO, September 17, 2014 – Inforce Technologies, LLC, a Cleveland based system integration and technology consulting firm for the insurance industry, announced today the company’s relocation to the prestigious Idea Center at Playhouse Square in Cleveland, Ohio. The move coincides with a comprehensive corporate rebranding strategy to reflect the company’s growth and expanded footprint within the core insurance systems marketplace.
Five years ago, company founder and President, Brian MacKenzie, an experienced and highly competent technology professional with an entrepreneurial spirit, launched Inforce Technologies to address a strong and growing marketplace need for specialized industry expertise with core insurance system implementations and integrations.
The relocation and new brand strategy represents the next critical phase in the company’s expansion initiative, and reflects the ongoing success and growth of the team’s unique services and support model for Insurance Carriers, says President & CEO Brian MacKenzie. “Our company has grown steadily by consistently delivering value to clients and leveraging our comprehensive and exhaustive subject matter expertise of insurance and our superior technology skill-set. This domain and technology expertise enables us to have an immediate impact on every engagement, from initial consultation through solution implementation and delivery”. He added, “It has been a fantastic journey thus far, and I would like to thank all of our team members and clients for their dedication and loyalty to our organization. We are committed to a company culture that supports the personal and professional development of everyone associated with our business. Together, we’ve accomplished some amazing things, and I couldn’t be more excited or encouraged about what’s yet to come”.
The Inforce Technologies team, currently located in Garfield Heights, Ohio, recently celebrated the company’s 5th year anniversary and marked the event with an evening that included an award and recognition as a Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses recipient. The Certificate of Entrepreneurship was accepted by MacKenzie in recognition of successful completion of the program in May, 2014.
The company’s relocation was a coordinated effort with local and regional key partners including The City of Cleveland’s Economic Development Department, The Greater Cleveland Growth Association, Ohio Means Jobs, and The Playhouse Square Foundation. The organizations worked closely to construct an agreement that will bring the company into one of the City’s prime downtown office and entertainment locations. Reflecting on the move, MacKenzie commented, “This six year deal demonstrates our commitment to the City of Cleveland and the community. In return, we have received incentives and opportunities that will allow us to grow and bring new talent into our firm. It really demonstrates the best of a private/public partnership and is a clear win for all parties. I’m very excited to be in the heart of a vibrant and growing area that will allow team members to work and live in the same community. We will be in a technology hub, surrounded by excellent colleges and universities, and well positioned to attract great new talent.
Joseph Wilson, the company’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing added, “In 2015, Inforce Technologies will be poised to deliver expanded technology consulting and system integration capabilities to a broader group of insurance carriers. Superior technology resources with strong insurance acumen are foundational to driving our ongoing success, and the market for proven experts continues to grow. Our company rebranding will reflect this expanded market strategy and it starts with this exciting move. I also live downtown so this is especially cool for me.”
