2012 Pacesetter centurion: Scott Barnyak, Christy Maruca, Chris Simchick, principal partners, SDLC Partners LP

Scott Barnyak, Christy Maruca and Chris Simchick make up the impressive leadership team at SDLC Partners LP, a technology consulting firm that focuses on accelerating the strategic initiatives of customers through business transformation, business intelligence and tech solutions. In the past two years, the principal partners have led the company through significant growth, reaching more than 270 employees.

Despite the unstable economic climate, the team has been able to strategically maintain growth while attracting and retaining talented employees. While other companies were making efforts to stabilize, Barnyak, Maruca and Simchick led SDLC in expansion.

Their talent is exemplified in their ability to recognize technology pain points and assemble a team to deliver vertical solutions. Specifically, SDLC’s services have positively impacted the health care industry in areas of business transformation, data analytics and technology implication. After assessing client’s needs and discovering areas of pain, Barnyak, Maruca and Simchick devised a team to deliver data-driven management decision support services.

As a result of their strategic hiring practices and innovative business management skills, SDLC soon outgrew its Monroeville headquarters, and in 2011, SDLC expanded into a second location in downtown Pittsburgh, known as SDLC’s Downtown Solutions Center.

A key aspect that Barnyak, Maruca and Simchick sought to change at SDLC was the human resources strategy. They recognized that success in the consulting services industry was derived from the ability to offer quality services to clients and employ top employees to do so. To build an environment that would build a lasting employee/employer relationship, the team revised the organization’s structure, compensation systems, performance management, sales, marketing and operational processes in an effort to attract and retain valuable employees.

In the Pittsburgh area, SDLC has extended services to the community, making the company a valuable asset. In addition to job creation, the partners created Community Sourcing in 2005, a program designed to keep college graduates in the Pittsburgh region and provide SDLC’s customers another option to manage costs associated with quality and technology-based initiatives.

By building this bond between employer, employee and client, SDLC is positioned to become a leading, full-service technology consulting firm that will revolutionize its industry.
