Boulder, CO, United States, 2010/05/06 - Amadeus Consulting, a local leader in custom application development, has just been nominated for ColoradoBiz Magazine’s list of the Top 50 Minority Owned Businesses. The company has been energetically led for the last 15 years by Lisa Calkins.
Amadeus Consulting, a Boulder-based technology solutions company, is pleased to be nominated for the ColoradoBiz Magazine’s list of the Top 50 Minority Owned Businesses in Colorado.
The magazine enjoys highlighting Colorado-based businesses that are majority diversity owned and celebrate the vision that multiculturalism brings. Additionally, the magazine views and praises diverse companies that have the ability to bring in large-scale government contracts.
As a custom software development company that has been minority-owned for over 15 years, Amadeus Consulting is extremely proud of this distinction. Lisa Calkins founded Amadeus Consulting in 1994 with partner John Basso, and has garnered a fantastic reputation for large-scale custom software applications both locally and nationally, business savvy and an attention to corporate responsibility and sustainability.
The company has achieved several distinctions for having a female leader in the predominately male driven field of technology. Some of Amadeus Consulting’s achievements include: Top 25 Women Owned Businesses 2008, 2009, Colorado Women-Owned Business of the Year 2003 by the Boulder BPW, and most recently as a finalist for the Stevie’s Awards for Top Executive.
Lisa Calkins, President and CEO of Amadeus Consulting finds it exciting to be at the forefront of such a fast-paced company saying, “For me it is just exciting not only to be the head of an organization that is so dynamic, but in a field that is so male-driven. I view it as an opportunity to bring my unique skill-set to the table, and see how it can alter the way users view technology.”
Most recently, Lisa and Amadeus Consulting have become local leaders in the field of mobile app development. The Boulder County Business Report recently named the technology solutions company the Top Mobile Development Company in Boulder and Broomfield Counties.
“We feel in particular that mobile development is a scenario where women bring a completely unique perspective. We enjoy developing mobile applications that incorporate those that women would want to purchase,” said Lisa about how her team creates custom applications.
The Top 50 Minority Owned Businesses in Colorado will be released in ColoradoBiz Magazine’s July 2010 edition.
