Michael Waddell began conceptualizing a professional services firm that would deliver superior IT solutions to clients with unparalleled integrity. He visualized this organization being one that would offer IT professionals technically challenging work along with the support to successfully pursue their own goals as professionals and as members of families and communities. INTEGRITYOne Partners (IOP), originally founded as Prizum in 1995, is the realization of this vision.
A strong believer in life-long learning, Mr. Waddell has successfully completed The Harvard Business School Owner/President Management Program, as well as The Harvard Business School’s Leading Professional Service Firms. Mr. Waddell used his continual thirst for knowledge to bolster his ability to provide the visionary, operational, and financial leadership that allows IOP to continue delivering superior business and IT solutions built on trust. With this background, Mr. Waddell leads the firm’s efforts to develop tools and bridge costly disconnections between technology and operations in the federal government. He is responsible for the firm’s allocation of resources and cost-efficiencies, based on a broad knowledge of all operational and investment functions of the firm. Moreover, Mr. Waddell invests much of himself with fellow employees by sponsoring and participating in numerous charities, encouraging open dialogue, participating in mentoring and initiating a reverse-mentoring program, coaching, and other relationship- and team-building activities.
Mr. Waddell brings to his leadership role functional experience in program management, quality assurance and software development. He utilizes a multitude of experience to ensure IOP achieves its mission of delivering solid IT solutions based on trust, thereby sustaining the long- term health and growth of the firm.
Michael Waddell’s rich technical and business experience allow him to ensure that clients’ technical and business requirements are kept in balance while also providing manageable work- life balance for the IOP team.
