Executech Named to MWCN’s list of Utah’s 100 Fastest Growing Companies
Executech has just been named to the MountainWest Capital Network (MWCN) Utah 100 list for the 9th straight year. The MountainWest Capital Network’s Utah 100 recognizes Utah’s fastest growing companies. Executech provides IT services in Utah and the western United States. They’re industry leaders in outsourced IT services.
Executech: Then and Now
Executech is a rapidly growing Utah company. They are a managed IT services provider (MSP) which means they provide outsourced IT services. They specialize in providing IT services with a personal touch (learn more about Executech’s personal touch to IT here). There is a stigma around IT technicians that they lack communication skills and they only emerge from their server room caves when there’s a problem and then quickly slink back when finished. Executech breaks this mold by only hiring technicians who are incredibly skilled technically but can also interact with clients on a personal level.

Outsourced IT Services Reimagined
Executech was founded by CEO Eric Montague in 1999. Eric had been working in IT for a while and recognized problems with the way many IT companies went about providing service. So, he decided to start his own company and do it right. Executech started out of his garage and it was a company of one. They started to grow rapidly due to its unique business model of being a people first IT company. Executech has grown to over 85 technicians and well over 120 employees, and services over 2,000 businesses throughout Utah, Washington, Colorado, Arizona, California, Nevada, and Idaho.
Excellence For Clients, Employees, and Community
Executech understands that as a business they have a responsibility to help boost their community whenever possible. As such, Executech’s reach and goals extend beyond business. They’ve made generous donations to many groups and organizations including the Boy Scouts of America, Startup Santa, and the Hale Center Theater. Also, their entire leadership team has been helping volunteer to turn an old church into a community center in Salt Lake. Read more about that experience here.
Executech is a growing Utah company that has received many awards lately both for their growth and culture, as well as their expertise technically. Executech is the most awarded outsourced IT services company in the western United States. Some of those awards include:

MountainWest Capital Network
The MountainWest Capital Network was founded in 1983. They were founded with the goal of helping entrepreneurs, investors, and professionals network and grow. They are the original independent business networking group in Utah. On their website they say:
“For over three decades, we have supported entrepreneurs, investors, and allied professional services firms with information about capital creation and distribution through sponsored events that inspire, stimulate, and reward successful business performance.”
Each year MountainWest Capital Network hosts an event to honor the business leaders throughout Utah who are honored on the list. “Each year, we recognize the 100 fastest growing companies in Utah, and each year, these 100 companies show why Utah consistently ranks as one of the best states in which to do business,” said Reed Chase, chairman of the MountainWest Capital Network’s Utah 100 committee. “At our 2018 Utah 100 event, we look forward to recognizing these companies for their tremendous growth and their contributions to Utah’s economy.”
The Executech Way: IT Services in Utah
Executech is different than your average outsourced IT services company. Their personal touch to IT services in Utah is more than a motto and is instead at the heart of every aspect of their business. They stand alone when it comes to providing It services in Utah. They differentiate themselves from their competitors in several key ways:
Personal Touch: Relationships
Their personal touch mantra at its core means that people always come first. Their technicians are trained to build relationships and have conversations with their clients. This is so that they can have an open dialogue with their clients and ensure they are meeting all their needs. All of Executech’s techs are great technically and great personally. Having both skillsets help to make sure that communication is clear on both ends and both sides understand each other. This double edge approach to IT services in Utah is unique to the industry and is the reason that many of Executech’s clients have been with them for decades.
Personal Touch: Client Care
Every Executech client has their own set tech. Therefore, there’s no rotating door of techs coming through. This allows for both the client and the technician to become familiar with each other. Therefore, by having one technician assigned to each client, that tech is able to always have a pulse on the client’s needs. Also, they know their system, they know their staff, and they know their goals and challenges. This ensures that the client’s needs are always being met and that clients can gain confidence in their tech. Many of Executech’s clients view their assigned technician as part of their staff and company family.
Personal Touch: Employee Empowering
Executech takes care of their employees. They understand that the people first approach extends to their employees as well. Also, Executech consistently works to empower their employees and help them grow personally and professionally. Executech attributes their success to the constant efforts of their dedicated and talented employees. They know that work is only a part of their employee’s lives and that life continues after 5 o’clock. This understanding is evident in the positive culture that is clear at Executech and the way their employees feel about their jobs.
Executech Growth: Preserving People First
Executech has seen a lot of growth throughout their existence and has been among the top growing Utah companies for a long time. They’ve recently opened up a new office at their headquarters located in South Jordan, UT.
They have not only been one of Utah’s fastest growing companies but they’re also expanding throughout the western United States. Executech has recently seen a surge in growth in their Washington operations and is hoping to open a second office in the state soon.
As their growth continues, Executech is focused on making sure that their people first approach remains strongly intact. They’re also focused on maintaining their award winning company culture. As some companies grow they lose sight of the people and methods that got them there and they then turn into a dollar crunching machine. Executech is constantly making efforts to avoid that fate and hold true to their foundation. Putting people first and providing outsourced IT services in Utah and beyond with a personal touch is what has helped Executech succeed for the past twenty years and is what will keep them going for the next twenty.
