The story of New York-based managed IT services provider Power Consulting goes back to the 1980s, when founder Chris Power was a graduate student.
At the time, the undecided entrepreneur worked a day job as an office temp partly to offset his costs for school. Managers at his firm had a recurring problem: they couldn’t communicate well with their IT department, resulting in information gaps, cost overruns, and a failure to meet project timelines.
Chris wanted to fix this problem. He knew office productivity could be improved significantly if IT departments were trained to work with line managers better and communicate clearly. At the time, it wasn’t common to view IT as an extension of the business itself, and this impacted collaboration between the two departments.
Power Consulting and Instruction was founded in 1989. In 1992, Chris’ brother Gary joined the company and they rebranded to Power Consulting.
Initially the firm’s focus was purely on IT training and consulting specifically to address the problems that Chris had identified during the early days. In the early 2000s, however, Power Consulting shifted gears and moved to a comprehensive managed IT services solution.
Some of the services that Power Consulting offers are:
- IT Support and IT Helpdesk
- Cyber Security

- IT Strategic Planning
- Cloud Services
- Remote monitoring and management
- IT Procurement
- IT Consulting
It’s worked with a vast number of clients, spread across industries such as finance, education, legal, non-profit, startups, media and advertising, and more.
