Years Nine and Ten

2014 started off with the Seattle Seahawks destroying the Denver Broncos (42-8) in Super Bowl XLVIII and Jay Leno ending his run on The Tonight Show. At IT360, we started the year by providing a Mondopad to grant a wish for a Make-A-Wish child. The recipient was a 7-year-old boy from Peoria battling Macrocephaly Capillary Malformation.

Years Seven and Eight

Our business continued to grow in 2012. We gained the trust of several new business clients, which meant that it was necessary to continue hiring additional employees. We already occupied two suites on the second floor above the Illinois Antique Center, so the search was on to find office space that would work better for […]

Year Six

2011 started off with some wild weather hitting the area. A blizzard in early February brought Peoria its second snowiest February on record with 20.9 inches falling (while December through February brought 52.5 inches in total during that period). That was followed by our second flooding incident from April through June incident along the Peoria […]

By 2010, we were starting to become a little more recognized in the community. In March, Healthy Cells magazine featured us as its cover story for our unique, proactive approach, and later that year we were asked to contribute to articles in the InterBusiness Issues.

Year Four

We started 2009 with another expansion of office space. Actually, this time, we physically moved our office down the hall into a larger suite over the Illinois Antique Center (now Running Central). We added a few walls and a small kitchenette for our rapidly growing team. The Peoria area was buzzing with the possibility for […]

Year Three

As you recall, 2008 was a rough year for many. The recession of 2008 (also called the Great Recession) was a major worldwide economic downturn that began in 2008 and continued into 2010 and beyond. It was caused by the financial crisis of 2008 and was by far the worst recession since the Great Depression […]

Year Two

Our wives are now starting to believe that we are actually running a company, but we are sure they still have their doubts. We’ve been on the second floor of 311 SW Water St. for almost a year now and are becoming experts at foosball. At some point in the year, I received the following […]

Year One

In late 2005, I was employed by a mechanical engineering design firm headquartered in Bartonville. As you might expect, locally this company supported Caterpillar. But regionally, we worked with larger companies (such as Ford, General Motors, and Boeing) in many different industries, supporting off highway, automotive, aerospace and defense projects.This firm employed more than 250 […]
