Leading supplier of business process and IT services looks forward to next decade of success

DENVER, April 9, 2012For 10 years Spinnaker has provided consulting, support, and business process outsourcing expertise to help domestic and multinational organizations improve business performance. With over 200 resources deployed globally, the Denver-based company is commemorating this milestone anniversary by holding a number of celebratory events at its offices across the globe.

Spinnaker, a global leader in supply chain and execution services, partners with its clients to deliver tangible results through the combination of process knowledge and industry best practices. Its accompanying brand, Spinnaker Support, helps companies maximize the life of their JD Edwards software investment by providing world-class maintenance, co-sourcingSM, and consulting services on a global basis. Together, both brands succeed by providing highly-experienced resources and results-driven processes to its clients, whether they are entrepreneurial start-up or Fortune 100 enterprises.

In 2002, co-founders Rob Benson and Matt Stava decided that they didn’t want to stay with the huge consulting conglomerate after the company they worked for at the time was acquired. Confident in their knowledge of the market and experienced in delivering highly valued services, Rob and Matt decided to go out on their own. And they haven’t looked back since. From a 10’x20’ office in Matt’s basement, to offices in Denver, Memphis, Columbus, Boston, London and Singapore, Spinnaker has grown into a dynamic multinational organization that prides itself on maintaining a strong sense of integrity in its business practices and always putting its customers’ needs first.

“It was a scary proposition, delving into the unknown and launching Spinnaker. Each early business decision was highly scrutinized and we still operate the same way today,” Rob Benson commented. “We are still expanding and looking at new opportunities, but being very pragmatic along the way. We are grateful to our charter customers that helped us keep the lights on and to our experienced staff that are committed to helping us sustain our very simple business mantra – our success is built on our clients’ success.”

Having twice been placed on the Inc. 500 list, receiving “Fastest Growing Company” honors, and named “One of Colorado’s Companies to Watch”, Spinnaker continues to make its mark as a mid-sized company with big-time capability. The company recently acquired one of its competitors and is planning to expand their service offerings in the next couple of months. Benson continued, “Many start-ups never reach their third anniversary, let alone their tenth. It’ll be interesting to see where we are in another 10 years.”

“Time has flown by since Rob and I started this,” said Matt Stava. “Back then, our business future was viewed through a lens of months and quarters, not years.  I am proud of what we have accomplished along the way. It wasn’t always easy, but the lessons learned have been priceless. At the end of the day, we have helped hundreds of companies, both big and small, improve their businesses…and we plan to help hundreds more.”

Spinnaker is a sponsor and exhibitor at this month’s Collaborate 2012 conference and the JDA Focus 2012 conference, both taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Conference attendees may stop by the Spinnaker and Spinnaker Support booths to learn more about the services the company will continue to provide its global customers in the coming decade.
