MATRIX History

MATRIX began in 1983 in Atlanta providing high quality IT staffing services. The company’s five founders, Lambert Chandler, Frank Glenn, Bill Gower, Ron McGinty, and John Scarbrough—were all former IBM or EDS IT professionals themselves. The hallmark of MATRIX, then and today, continues to be reflected in our foundational values—high integrity, excellence, respect, innovation, fun, and results driven. Today, we have built that business to more than 1,500 staffing consultants, working across the U.S.

MATRIX Professional Services History

In the late 1990s; several MATRIX staffing clients asked us to perform fixed bid projects for them. Client needs that were previously met through contract consultants now required us to take responsibility for a specific work product. As we became more adept at delivering projects and building our bench, we officially launched MATRIX Professional Services in 2003, with a strong emphasis on offshore delivery. This officially gave us and our clients more options and more value in terms of delivery.

  • Early on we adopted Agile methodology as our preferred delivery methodology for application development, and also built a strong client infrastructure services business.
  • We achieved Microsoft Silver Partner status in 2009, and refocused our business on Microsoft development solutions.
  • Since 2003 we have completed 900+ projects with more than 135 different clients, from Fortune 50 to startup.
  • Seventy-eight (78) percent of our business is repeat business, a fact that is reflected in our high client satisfaction scores (avg. 9.9/10).

MATRIX Professional Services leaders come from a variety of backgrounds, but all share a similar vision for delivering the highest quality IT professional services solutions.
