DMD Data Systems was founded in 1996 by president Dave Sevigny. After beginning his career as an engineer for IBM’s printer division in Lexington, Kentucky, he moved into IT sales. When IBM sold its printer operations Dave had the opportunity to start his own company as an IBM Business Partner. His core clients were Kentucky’s K-12 school districts, to which he was assigned in his IBM days.
In 2003 he started growing the business and expanding coverage into state and local government and higher education. In 2010, DMD Data Systems named the Small Business of the Year by Commerce Lexington, and Dave Sevigny was awarded the Small Business Person of the Year award for the state of Kentucky in 2011. The company has grown to 25 employees and serves clients throughout the southeast and mid-Atlantic.
DMD Data Systems is a privately-held S-corporation which currently has nine shareholders. Employees having over two years of full-time service with the company are evaluated and potentially extended an offer of co-ownership. Shareholders meet quarterly to collaborate on vision and strategy, and as needed to discuss business development, stewardship, and financial issues.
Stewardship is a core value at DMD Data Systems. Every day we are entrusted not only with our clients’ IT systems but with care for those we interact with, our community and environment. We are determined to live up to the trust put in us, as individuals and as a company.
At DMD Data Systems we treat our clients and each other fairly, not taking advantage of others nor allowing them to take advantage of us. We routinely advocate for our clients in dealing with our manufacturer partners to ensure that they are being treated fairly also.
We are committed to respond to clients and coworkers with the level of urgency expected. Technology issues don’t only happen between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. When necessary we respond to client issues around the clock to keep mission-critical systems running.
The DMD Data Systems team, collectively and individually are involved in our communities in many ways, including teaching Junior Achievement curriculum in our local schools, coaching youth sports, and volunteering time with at-risk teens, as well as supporting fundraising activities.
Supporting our Professional IT Community
DMD Data Systems contributes to the vitality of our local IT professional communities by sponsoring and organizing conferences, seminars, practicums, client councils, and user groups, and by supporting organizations which promote diversity within the profession.
IT continues to have amazing power to transform our workplaces and communities by breaking down cultural and economic barriers, increasing efficiency, and creating better experiences and outcomes for citizens, students, patients, consumers, and employees. Stuck in our cubicles and offices it easy to lose sight of the big picture. That’s why we invest time and money on events which connect our professional IT communities.
