At the end of January, Object Partners will have officially been in business for 20 years. While that sounds like a very long time, it’s gone by quickly for some of us old timers. When we started OPI, we wanted it to be the kind of place where talented people would want to work. Where people could use their skills to provide great service to their clients, while at the same time continually growing their own skills and working along side other talented people. Along with that, we felt that the company should focus on removing as much distraction and worry from it’s employees and their families, by providing the best possible benefits and support. Hopefully we were able to do that, and hopefully we’re still doing that today, 20 years later.
Our success and growth can only be attributed to one thing, and that’s our dedication to hiring great people. Without that, we wouldn’t have been able to build our reputation and earn the trust of some of the largest companies in the world. So this is a great opportunity to thank every OPIer for their dedication and hard work throughout the years. It’s easy to get lost in the day to day details of our work, so it’s nice to take a step back and recognize our accomplishments, and I think being in business for 20 years qualifies as an accomplishment.
We’ve grown from a truly “Mom and Pop” outfit to an organization with multiple offices and 115 employees across 5 different states, and we’re not done yet. The future continues to be very bright as we expand our client base across the U.S. and beyond (we’re currently in discussions with Lego in Denmark!). A client list that includes Target, Best Buy, Verizon, Cargill, etc., etc. is something that every OPIer can be proud of. And a very big thank you is in order to our clients, that have entrusted OPI with some of their most complicated and mission critical software systems. It’s not easy to hand over that kind of responsibility to a “vendor”, but I think that speaks to the trust we’ve built with our clients over the years.
So thanks again to everyone that has helped Object Partners over the past 20 years. It’s been a great ride and we look forward to seeing what our future holds.
