CEO Welcome

Thanks for taking the time to learn more about Intertech.  As the largest combined software developer training company and research-supported consulting firm in Minnesota , I'm proud of the team we've built and clients we've served. When we began, I wanted to create a special place for the best people and work with the exceptional customers - customers who shared our values, saw us as strategic, and whose business we could impact using practical technology.

When I share with people what we're about, I find myself restating our firm's values. Instead of trying to paraphrase, here they are:

When you were reading our bulleted values above, if you found yourself saying "yes!" – whether you're looking for a business solution or a career opportunity – give us a call.

We've come a long way since the early 90's - from a bedroom in the back of my home to earning over 45 awards for growth and excellence.  Our success wouldn't be possible without the dedication of our team and the support of our customers - I thank them both.

Take care,



Tom Salonek

Founder and CEO
