Who We Are
n 1994, Joe Blomker was approached by business leaders and investors who recognized the market need for an entity to help organizations integrate new technology and establish new IT operating models. As a result, Blomker and four colleagues moved into a small office in St. Louis, Missouri, and Maryville Data Systems, a management consulting and professional services firm, was born. In 1999, as IT’s emphasis shifted from creating data to impacting business, Maryville Data Systems changed its name to Maryville Technologies, and in 2018, Maryville Technologies became Maryville Consulting Group. This name reflects the company’s broader portfolio of capabilities and our commitment to be the best transformation partner for our clients as we celebrate our expanded business impact.
From the beginning, Maryville Consulting Group’s business emphasis has been on establishing long-term client relationships built upon a history of business impact. Unique among technology startups, our business plan never included an “exit strategy” but rather an emphasis on a client-centered operating model. Over the years, adherence to Maryville Consulting Group’s successful market approach was reinforced as Blomker secured a controlling interest in the firm. Today, the firm’s leadership includes Blomker’s sons Joey, Managing Director for Digital Operations, and Jeff, practice director for technology business management (TBM). As a family-owned business, Maryville Consulting Group values long-term relationships that put clients’ needs first and provide business impact that lasts.
Much has changed in technology and business since 1994, but Maryville Consulting Group’s impact on transformational outcomes has remained consistent. With more than 95% of new client business coming from referrals, we have built a record of client satisfaction that is unmatched by other consulting and technology-enablement firms. Part of that, of course, is our proven history of enhancing the value organizations get from their technology investments by applying consistent methodology to handle new disruptors. But equally important is the client- and results-oriented philosophy that drives our delivery of new emerging operating models and accelerates business impact, ultimately allowing us to provide our clients and their customers with an exceptional experience.
