Who We Are
Solution Design Group (sdg) is an IT consulting firm based in Golden Valley, MN. We deliver IT solutions around Microsoft and Open Source technologies and utilize our Project Delivery Team to help round out these service offerings. We have more than 120 consultants and just over 20 operations members that make up the sdg Team. Most of our customers can be found locally around the Twin Cities, but a few of our projects are nationwide.
How We Got Here
Bill Francomb started the company in 1989 and celebrated his retirement at the end of 2015. Jeff Daniel joined sdg in 1991 and became the second founder of sdg. He is also a billable consultant, the Director of Project Delivery, and the current CEO at sdg. Keith Martin, the third and final founder of sdg, joined Bill and Jeff in 2004. Keith became the President of sdg in 2006 and still holds that title today. With Bill's retirement at the end of last year, the founders decided to transition the company to an ESOP, or Employee Stock Ownership Plan. This means that sdg is 100% owned by its employees.
What We Live By
Along with solid leadership and great people, a company is defined and built by its Core Values. At sdg, we are committed to ours and have been since the very beginning:
- Superior Customer Service
- Exceptional Employee Experience
- Responsible Corporate Citizenship
We believe the key to our continued success is staying true to these values.
