Raptek – 25 years in the making!

Raptek – 25 years in the making!


Reflecting on our company’s 25yr anniversary date, I decided to dig a little deeper into what’s made our company who we are today.

I had a chance to catch up with our company’s founder and former CEO, Dave Wilmot, recently and reminisce a bit. Having acquired the company from Dave 4 years ago, after working with him for the prior 15 years, the conversation resembled that old saying of “the more things change the more they stay the same.”

More specifically, that the more things change from a technology perspective, the more things stay the same from a people perspective.

The speed at which technology has changed business has been astounding. We’ve been fortunate to be at the forefront of that movement by adapting to our customer’s needs and delivering the services to support that change through our partnership with one of the most innovative companies in the world - ServiceNow.

But despite all of those technology changes we’ve seen, the character of our company has stayed the same as has the importance of the people on our team.

During my conversation with Dave he mentioned that the greatest enjoyment he had while at Raptek was the privilege to work with such a talented group of individuals. And that he always had the belief that if we had the best people on our team that the rest will work out. I couldn’t agree more, and it’s that philosophy which still rings true today and has carried us since 1996.

So, while we’re 25 years in the making, the excitement around what’s to come has never been greater. As a company that is rooted in a belief of doing good business and doing good, I believe we’ve just scratched the surface of the impact we can make in the communities where our employees and customers live.

So cheers to 25 years...to our great customers that put their trust in us and to our amazing team that has made us the company who we are today. - Bill Mell, CEO, Rapid Technologies
