Eric Hardy believes that every problem has a solution, and he’s willing to work hard to find it at w3r Consulting.
Hardy started his first company, WebRunners Inc., in 1995 with two partners. Four years later, the company purchased 51 percent of Infoservices Inc., and two years after that, Infoservices was spun off into its own company and the name was changed to w3r, short for We Create Construct Connect Result.
Until 2003, the consulting and staffing company was completely dependent on clients in the automotive industry, then Hardy, CEO of w3r, decided it was time to diversify the company’s customer portfolio. He made the decision based on the fact that Michigan has a lot to offer in other industries and that those businesses that wanted to survive needed to make a change. Today, the company serves customers in the health care and financial services industries, and has expanded into new geographical areas, opening satellite offices in Cincinnati, Columbus, New York City, Chicago and Dallas.
With the expansion, Hardy’s five-year plan is to grow top-line corporate revenue 10 times in a five-year period. Now in the second year of the plan, Hardy anticipates meeting that mark before the end of the fourth year and attributes the growth to the company’s willingness to adapt very quickly to a customer’s requirements. In an ever-changing economy where dozens of firms provide similar services, w3r has distinguished itself by going the extra mile for its customers.
