Intellinet is a purpose-driven digital transformation ser- vices firm. Intellinet delivers
value-creating solutions and material impact for clients through
industry-aligned strategy, digital,
and technology services. With an
experience-driven mindset, “we
lead boldly and innovate alongside our clients, enabling them to
realize the full business value of
today’s technologies,” says Mark
Seeley, CEO of Intellinet. Seeley
sat down with Consulting to discuss the firm’s revenue growth.
Consulting: What were the main
factors that contributed to your firm’s
Seeley: About seven years ago, we
shifted the focus of our business
from delivering award-winning technology solutions to the actual business transformation behind those
solutions. This new strategy moved
us further upstream to focus on business strategy, marketplace pressures
requiring innovation, process improvement, corporate engagement,
and the material adoption of these
transformative solutions. While we
are still a technology services firm at
our core, our ability to envelop those
solutions with a strategy, process,
and people minded approach differentiates us and helps us deliver material impact for our clients.
Consulting: How is this year shaping
up for your firm?
Seeley: This year has been one of the
most exciting in our firm’s history. In
July 2018, we announced a majority strategic investment by FPT, the
global leading IT Service Provider
headquartered in Vietnam. Under this
agreement, Intellinet continues to operate as an independent organization;
however, the two sides are able to
leverage each other’s strengths. With
this new partnership, Intellinet enhances FPT’s offerings with strategy
and management consulting capabilities and becomes part of a company
with deep offshore capacity, focusing
on digital transformation.
Consulting: How would you describe
your firm’s outlook for 2019?
Seeley:: Intellinet’s outlook for 2019
is stronger than it has ever been. By
focusing on our core capabilities
and leveraging the expertise and resources of FPT, we can truly deliver
end-to-end strategic IT services on a
global scale, helping clients to accelerate their Digital Transformation.
Consulting: What would you say are
your firm’s biggest challenges?
Seeley: Our consulting business’
success depends on our ability to
materially impact the businesses of
our clients. In light of that, our big-
gest two challenges have always
been finding the absolute best peo-
ple at the right time and earning the
continued trust of our clients every
day to help them succeed. It’s a not
an easy business model, but it’s very
rewarding and forces us to be driven
by a passion for excellence each day.
Consulting: What does being named
one of Consulting’s Fastest Growing
Firms mean to your firm, your
employees and your clients?
Seeley: Being named one of the
nation’s Fastest Growing Firms is
a great honor for our firm and validates our operating principle of being
a ‘profitable, growing company that
delights customers and provides an
excellent employment experience’.
While this award is a great honor
for Intellinet and our employees, our
customers may indeed be the biggest
benefactors of our focus on excellence, as we continue to incorporate
our purposeful best practices of strategic clarity, organizational effectiveness, change management and business alignment into all of our strategy, process, and technology projects.
