PEI is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year! Over the last 30 years, this family-owned, IT consulting firm has evolved from a two-person startup to a multimillion dollar company serving a diverse client base across the United States.

PEI was first incorporated in 1988 in San Mateo, CA by brothers Tim and Chris Krueger with the goal of providing IT services for the Savings and Loan industry through a focus on enhancing and extending businesses’ IT investments. After the subsequent crash of the Savings and Loan industry less than a year later and the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, PEI decided to change both focus and locations. By 1992, PEI had made Boulder, CO it’s permanent home and has since developed specializations in several areas of technology—cloud architecture, virtualization, unified communications, advanced services, and managed services.
