We aim to redefine IT professional services in the Northwest by consistently creating reliable solutions for our region’s most admired technology companies and IT organizations, while always prioritizing the mutual success of the companies, consultants, and candidates we represent.


historyWhile working as an entrepreneur within the family business, Kalles Group founder Derek Kalles identified the need for external technical support and sought IT consulting services from several local firms. Having previously served at Accenture, Derek knew the options available to him were lacking in either the technical expertise to assist with his objectives or the personal commitment to his company that he’d learned was integral to the success of an IT consulting engagement.

Derek believed entrepreneurs, business owners and talented IT professionals deserve a consulting firm that provides reliable, tailored solutions for technical problems, and systematically aligns the most talented professionals with the companies that need their expertise. He believed the key to this ability was valuing the people of an organization over transactions, and that the only response to his unmet support needs was to craft a professional services firm dedicated to doing it right.

Kalles Group was born from the belief that professional services in information technology should and can be provided with more integrity, efficiency, and enduring success for both clients and consultants.
