SOUTHFIELD, MI--(Marketwire - June 18, 2012) - Epitec, one of the nation's largest minority-owned IT staffing and technology services providers unveils a new corporate identity. "As part of our strategic plan, we are pleased to roll out our new name and corporate logo," said Josie Sheppard, President. "We have shortened our name to simply 'Epitec.' Our new logo visually reflects our energetic growth and contains a tag line that embodies the core of our corporate culture," she concluded.
Formerly known as The Epitec Group, Inc., the name Epitec represents an extraordinary level of care for people and a passion for technology. Ancient philosopher Epictetus (Epi) professed that we have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak. Epitec places the highest priority on listening intently to people in order to understand needs fully. Adding "tec" to the name further defines the technology focus of Epitec. The new tag line, "Placing People First" represents Epitec's strong commitment to customers and employees. "Our customers and employees are our people. We place them first in everything we do," commented Tony Hollamon, Executive Vice President. "We also place people first for our customers ahead of the competition," he added.
Officially shortening the corporate name to Epitec and instituting a new corporate logo are the first steps in rolling out the new corporate identity. Later this year, a completely redesigned website will be launched. The website will include all elements of the new corporate identity plus interactive functionalities for customers, employees and potential employees.
