Our People

Chicago Technologies was launched in 1998 by Chris Fuller, Tom Cox, and Rick Sternquist. As alumni of Ernst & Young's Great Lakes Management Consulting Practice in Chicago, they found that they possessed many of the same qualities and interests: an entrepreneurial spirit, leadership skills, uncompromisable integrity, and a desire to use their technical skills to maximize how their clients utilize technology. Since 1998, they have assembled a high�performance team of consultants who are attracted by the mission and spirit of the firm.
