SingleStone’s Evolution

November 1, 2019

In 2006, I joined SingleStone with one simple goal: demonstrate how consulting can be done differently. I have always loved solving problems across organizations, from my early career in a corporate setting through my transition to consulting. When I was first introduced to SingleStone (or Dominion Digital for those who go way back with us), I was struck by the unique approach to the industry, the quality of the work, and the humility and expertise of the people. SingleStone’s mission, then and now, is to elevate the human experience in business because it’s good for business and it’s good for people. I was hooked.

Thirteen years later, a lot of things have changed (the company name, office locations, significant expansion of the team), but our mission and our core values have remained the same. We strive to cultivate a culture that people enjoy being a part of and we prioritize the human experience – for our team, our clients, our partners, and our community. We do great work, not with a bottom-line first approach, but rather for the sake of improving how people interact with technology. 

When I stepped into the role of CEO in 2017, I made a commitment to our team: we will prioritize three things to help us empower our clients to think and work like modern agile companies. 

  1. Focus – We are creating more focus by leveraging our strengths while investing in deepening expertise in targeted areas to help our clients successfully transform.  
  2. Experimental Culture – We are willing to try anything, with the catch that if it doesn’t work, we learn and adapt quickly.
  3. Growth – We are taking our unique approach to problem-solving and scaling it to have an even greater impact for current and new clients. 

To this end, we are refreshing the SingleStone brand and refining our solutions. This is an aesthetic and strategic alignment that represents our evolution. The boldness of our brand matches our ambitious aspirations and still maintains the humility that attracted me to SingleStone thirteen years ago. 

At SingleStone, we work with our clients to design, build, and implement the custom tech solutions that scale enterprise speed, innovation, and agility. We are experts in the methods and technologies that are transforming the way people think and work, including: 

Looking ahead, you can expect greater focus and even deeper expertise as we continue to grow and thrive. It’s because of the amazing SingleStone team, doing what they do every day, and our clients, longtime and new, that we have this opportunity. Because of you, we step confidently into the bold future we’ve designed for ourselves.  

With heartfelt gratitude and excitement for the future!
