Slow and steady: tech firm surviving in a tough economy. (Digerati Update).
The company has seen an increase in annual earnings from $14 million in 2000 to $18 million in 2001. "Given the current state of the economy, the company is doing well," says Giles.
The company also won the 2001 Corporation of the Year award from the Atlanta Business League. Giles is a regular speaker at trade shows, sits on numerous committees, and is working on his second book on Nortel technology. Giles' first book, Cisco CCIE Study Guide, was, and still is, a bestseller with more than 50,000 copies sold.
With offices in Atlanta, Seattle, Orlando, Johannesburg, and Malaysia, Giles has grown his company from 53 to 75 employees. He plans to expand the company's focus into proof-of-concept testing and Internet security auditing and consulting. He is now looking for "win-win" strategic partnerships and has teamed up with firms in Kansas City and Dallas to "leverage our skill set."
