NAVIGATING STORMY WATERS
RightDirection Technology Solutions, LLC (RDTS) is a certified HUBZone and service-disabled veteran-owned small business. “We are committed to providing a wide array of high-quality, end-to-end IT solutions by leveraging a powerful combination of industry best practices and leading standards,” says Joey Hutchins, president and CEO of RDTS. The company’s success has been the result of a number of different factors, including a strategic emphasis on the most promising opportunities. “It’s necessary for leaders to keep focused on the desired end results, such as increased sales and profits or more satisfied customers, while constantly steering the organization across the stormy waters of the marketplace,” says Hutchins.
Quick Tip: “I want to maintain an environment where the employees who work at RDTS can do the best work of their careers.”
As RDTS grew, the company received help from local Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTACs), which advise contractors through a group of specialty counselors. The PTACs were especially helpful in filling the need for experienced mentorship and addressing the financial implications of fast growth, says Hutchins. Within five years, he hopes to increase RDTS’s market share by 10 percent. “As RDTS moves through the years, we want to leave a wake of good feelings, quality and fundamental decency with our customers and partners,” he says.
