IP Pathways Celebrates Five Year Anniversary

Share Article

This month marks the 5th Anniversary of the founding of IP Pathways. In the five years since inception, IP Pathways has garnered national recognition and received many prestigious awards. The company recently was ranked #760 on the Inc. 5000. CRN Magazine included IP Pathways on the Fast Growth 100 list for the past two years and the company’s work with virtual desktops (“VDI”) has been the subject of national case studies by both VMware and NetApp. All of this has been accomplished since the establishment of IP Pathways on November 5th, 2007 and during one of the worst economic times in recent memory.

We would like to personally thank every employee, partner and customer that has helped us build a successful company over the past five years. Without all of you, the vision Wade and I had five years ago could have never come to fruition.

“According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, over 50 percent of small businesses fail in the first five years. IP Pathways is proud to announce that we beat the odds. We would like to personally thank every employee, partner and customer that has helped us build a successful company over the past five years. Without all of you, the vision Wade and I had five years ago could have never come to fruition. It is an extremely humbling experience looking back at the hurdles we have overcome over the last few years. We are grateful for the opportunity to continue to grow IP Pathways and help our customers with the products and services we offer for years to come” says Joe Shields, President of IP Pathways.

IP Pathways not only has beaten the odds, but has thrived. The company today has offices in Des Moines, Omaha and Kansas City and is launching a national practice focused on the healthcare market.

Wade Brower, EVP of Sales and Marketing states, “This has been an incredible journey and we very proud of our team’s accomplishments. We have achieved great things in our five years but we have just scratched the surface. Joe and I set out to change how IT services were delivered. IT was in the midst of dramatic change and we believed managing those changes would require new ways of thinking. We were laser focused on technologies redefining the data center and set out to build a team of experts who could bring these new technologies to customers in our footprint. We firmly believe today that when it comes to IT infrastructure and the next generation data center, IP Pathways has unmatched expertise, depth and talent. We are proud to bring this expertise to our customers.”

In an era when many organizations describe themselves as sales driven or boast of great marketing teams, IP Pathways has focused on the technology and their customers. The company believes that by putting the customer first and providing the highest level of engineering services, growth will occur naturally.

Shields adds, “IP Pathways’ commitment to customer support and technical excellence has proven a successful formula in the market. As we look forward to the next five years, IP Pathways plans to leverage this foundation to expand its offerings and market coverage. We would once again like to thank our employees, partners and customers as we look forward to this expansion.”
