Summit Technologies - Salesforce partners since 2016
Summit Technologies was formed in the summer of 2016 by long-time friends Mike Leibrand and Moez Chaabouni. Mike had just sold a couple of companies in the apparel industry that he had founded grew to over $25M in annual sales, and wanted to change his focus to technology services, having recognized the critical role technology played in the growth and success of his previous businesses. Moez had just left a position as Deputy CIO for the City of Columbus, and recognized the transformational potential of cloud based platform development. Moez recommended Mike take a deep dive into Salesforce, and when Mike did, he recognized the revolutionary power of the platform to enable businesses to rapidly adapt, scale and grow in an ever-changing, challenging market.
That summer, Moez and Mike formed Summit Technologies LLC as a Salesforce partner, specializing in project work. Moez and Mike bring a diverse and complementary skill set to the business. Mike has been an entrepreneur since the early 1990's and is very much in tune with the needs and challenges of small businesses. Moez brings experience working in a leadership role for local government, higher education and large enterprises. Through a shared philosophy of creating a great place to work and giving back to the community, Moez and Mike have built a strong team of Salesforce professionals over the years since their inception.
Today, Moez and Mike work as the managing partners for a thriving Salesforce partner practice, dealing with the daily challenges of running a rapidly growing organization. They have surrounded themselves with a talented team of sales and delivery professionals who consistently fulfill the promise of the organization to deliver success to each of our clients on every project.
The future is bright for Summit Technologies as we continue to grow and deepen our focus on bettering ourselves, bettering our clients and bettering our community.
