Logicalis isn't just simply Logicalis anymore. Or maybe it's three time the Logicalis it once was.
The Farmington Hills-based IT firm has organized itself into more locally oriented business units after it acquired NetArx last year. Each of these three units focuses on its region, so two units focus on Michigan and Arizona, and the third oversees the smaller regional offices across the U.S.
"It drives down more accountability to local geography," says Greg Baker, CFO of Logicalis
. "That way we're not plain vanilla across the U.S. and can customize more for our customers."
That has led to more growth for the 14-year-old firm. It has increased its Michigan presence, mainly focused in Metro Detroit, to 270 employees and 12 interns. That's after it hired 35 people here over the last year.
Logicalis has also watched its revenue spike five percent as it has become the second largest IT company in Michigan.
"I see us continuing to take market share and create an atmosphere that is attractive in our space," Baker says.
