Founded on a Vision
LTI was founded in 1989 with a vision to create a company driven to provide an exceptional, unrivaled level of service. In order to do so, we set out to hire the best and brightest minds in the industry. LTI’s stated mission became: “Our Company will drive upward the standards that support and reward talented consultants. Motivated people provide superior service to clients.” This strategy became a magnet for top performers, offering an environment in which they could be stimulated, flourish professionally and receive appreciation and compensation for their contributions.
The ‘Pro People’ Company
LTI’s plan worked. Qualified individuals came, stayed and began building a team capable of delivering outstanding results. With the foundation firmly in place, LTI began a -year journey of strategic and organic growth that has us now entering our third decade as a Global provider of IT services and solutions in both Infrastructure Services and Enterprise Business Solutions.
Highlights 1990 – 1999: Logic Technology, Inc.
Fueled by initial successes in marketing consulting, our first decade saw the birth of service verticals, the establishment of core competencies and the growth of our geographic footprint. LTI capitalized as the industry sought to modernize processes and embrace a more decentralized operating environment.

2000 – 2009: Leadership. Technology. Integrity.
The first decade of the new millennium saw LTI expand dramatically, both domestically and internationally, as LTI’s reputation as a premier service provider grew with the successful delivery of several key, strategic initiatives for clients in both the Infrastructure Services and Enterprise Solutions divisions. LTI’s growth was realized from expansion of services by existing clients and the acquisition of several key new accounts.
