PRESENTER: Angela Hurt Founder/CEO – Veracity Consulting, Inc.
Angela started her career in 1999 with a Kansas City-based consulting firm. She gained a broad understanding of prevalent, widely used technologies including operating systems, networking technologies, and development tools used to make business and systems analysts and project managers a success. From there, she transitioned to putting her skills to the test for national firms, soaking up the different operating models and company cultures. As a result of that experience, she learned to examine and understand business problems from a holistic and systemic perspective.
Eventually, her desire to do something greater took over and she founded Veracity Consulting. Her vision was to build success through the thoughtful building of relationships and the conscientious understanding of the individual work environment. She wanted to bring people onto the Veracity team who share its values, which allows for the building of a collective mind of talented, dedicated, and committed professionals who focus on the right solutions to problems.
Angela encourages this same approach with Veracity’s client partners; she understands that clients are only as good as the teams that deliver their services. Angela insists that Veracity remain focused on providing premier IT professional services as a means to an end. She recognizes that technology is merely a tool—one that is only as effective as the person using it. To empower client partners to be a driving force in their industry, Veracity teams focus on understanding their business – to take the time to understand their values and how Veracity can help them meet their company objectives.
Over the last eight years, Angela has transformed Veracity from a homegrown company into a nationally performing firm with six areas of practice, which include Program Management, Data Services, Enterprise Architecture, Managed Infrastructure Solutions, Security, and Web Solutions. Angela attended Wichita State University for three years and finalized her Bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems at Friends University in 1998.
