Boulder, CO, June 26, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Amadeus Consulting was recently ranked 24th in the top 50 Minority-Owned Businesses in Colorado for 2010, according to ColoradoBiz Magazine.
For the last 16 years, ColoradoBiz Magazine has highlighted successful Colorado companies that are owned by minorities, as well as praising companies for diversity and success. This year, Amadeus Consulting, a custom software development company based out of Boulder, was recognized for having a female leader in the predominately male-driven field of technology.
Lisa Calkins, President and CEO of Amadeus Consulting, founded the company in 1994, with an emphasis on creating high quality custom software solutions for businesses locally and nationally. Since then, Calkins has gained a fantastic reputation for her business savvy and attention to corporate responsibility and sustainability.
Calkins attributes her success to a positive attitude, a drive for success, and a corporate culture that recognizes individual talents and responsibilities.
“It is exciting to be the head of an organization that is so dynamic and pushing the edge of what is possible with software,” Calkins said. “For us, diversity matters because it is important that we have a broad range of skills, talents, and interests in order to create the best result for our clients. When we can package all that expertise and experience into a solid solution for our clients, everyone benefits.”
As a result of Lisa’s work, as well as the many contributions of the employees and leaders at the company, Amadeus Consulting has seen tremendous success and has built a huge variety of software systems and applications for a broad range of companies. This includes everything from mobile apps for the iPhone™ and Android™, to enterprise level databases and cloud hosted applications.
“One of our guiding principles is that ‘everything is possible,’” Calkins said. “That’s our motto for the software solutions we create, but also with how we interact with our coworkers, the community, and our clients. We have created a truly unique and open office of technology professionals, and I believe with this type of company culture that everything truly is possible.”
Amadeus Consulting and Lisa Calkins have also been awarded numerous other awards, including recognition as a finalist for the Stevie’s Awards for Top Executive, as well as the Top Women Owned Businesses for 2008 and 2009, and the Colorado Women-Owned Business of the Year in 2003.
