Nine41 Consulting was established in 2016 with a mission to architect solutions that secure, protect and automate the day-to-day IT services so customers can focus on their next-level IT opportunities.
The culture at Nine41 Consulting is built upon integrity and in paying attention to the smallest of details offering a delightful experience at every step of your engagement with us.
Just look at our name. “Nine41 Consulting” is a play off of Apple’s marketing. If you pay close attention to many of the product placements by Apple, you’ll notice the time on the devices show 9:41. According to Scott Forstall, a former Senior Vice-President at Apple, the big product reveal in Apple’s keynotes is scheduled to occur around the forty-minute mark. “When the big image of the product appears on screen, we want the time shown to be close to the actual time on the audience’s watches. But we know we won’t hit 40 minutes exactly.*” Thus they set their revealed products to display the time of 9:41 AM.
It’s that level of focus and detail that Apple has shown in their product placements that we strive for with each and every customer that engages with us.
The first phase in our process is to discover exactly what your business initiatives are. In other words, you talk and we listen to ensure we fully comprehend your unique requirements.
Phase two is to propose a comprehensive solution we feel would best solve your specific requirements within your given budget and timeframe.
The final phase in the process is to implement. In short, we deploy the products you purchased so you can start reaping a return on your investment.
Bennett Norton, the founder and president of Nine41 Consulting, started his career as a systems administrator for DirectPointe–a managed IT service provider. While there, he was tasked with integrating all types of client devices within the newly managed networks.
He’s since worked in several roles at Ivanti (formerly LANDESK) within the Unified Endpoint Management product suites, including time as a Sales Engineer and Product Manager. These years of implementing, troubleshooting, managing, and working with IT individuals all across the world has culminated in the creation of Nine41 Consulting.
“Technology’s ability to enhance life has inspired me since childhood. I love technology and because of that love, I am often an early adopter of technologies and I am always finding myself experimenting with what might be the next big technology opportunity.”
Wesley Andersen, the VP of Sales for Nine41 Consulting, got his start in the IT world at Tek-Tools Software–a Dallas startup. It was there that he gained an understanding of Storage Systems, Servers, and Backup, as well as the complexities of an IT sales cycle and the importance of providing useful solutions–not just “shelfware”. As is typical with a startup, he wore multiple hats. He spent a lot of time growing partner relations with companies like Dell and PC Mall, while simultaneously holding a quota for both new sales and renewal business.
After two years of selling with Tek-Tools, the company was acquired by a large Network Monitoring and Reporting Software company–SolarWinds. Over Wesley’s eight-year tenure at SolarWinds, he held various roles such as ISR, Storage and Virtualization Specialist, AE, System Management Regional Sales Manager and Install Base Sales Manager. His last three years at SolarWinds were spent managing a mixed team of ISR’s and AE’s that focused on growing their existing customer base. This experience provided Wes with an understanding of many things IT–Networking, Systems, Storage, Vitalization and Databases.
Wesley’s industry experience gained through his varied roles and sales background, make him the perfect fit to help Nine41 Consulting and their valued customers. “I am excited to be part of what Nine41 is doing. With my history in the IT world combined with Bennett’s experience, we are a valuable and trusted asset to our customers.”
Brian Shim joins the Nine41 Team as a Solutions Architect, ready to create systems that work for our customers.
Brian started his IT journey supporting Windows, then Macintosh. Since being exposed to Jamf Software, Brian has made a mission of creating manageable solutions for all team sizes, and Brian has 10 years of experience working with Jamf, MacOS, iOS, and tvOS as specialties. Brian has been a Certified Casper Expert (CCE) and has been the full time Mac Server/Client Admin at The Westminster Schools.
Brian has also enjoyed participation in the ConnectED program, furthering the cause of leveling the educational playing field with technologies and best practice implementation. Brian believes the right match of software and know-how can significantly help even the smallest teams.
"Nine41 is fantastic. The Nine41 crew helped us put together an automated and fairly involved MacOS/Bootcamp provisioning process using both Casper and Ivanti. This team is well-versed in both platforms, and the expertise shows. Nine41 helped us above and beyond what was expected of this project. I highly recommend Nine41, and will be personally recommending Nine41 for all my peers' needs for Mac, Windows, and beyond."
"Nine41 has been the perfect Ivanti partner for us! We are in an environment with both MacOS and Windows and I was concerned that there would be an issue with our multi-OS environment. Bennett and Nine41 have been absolutely vital in setting up our Ivanti Endpoint Management (LANDesk) solution for both MacOS and Windows and have removed any hesitations or questions I have had along the way. The week-long on-site engagement was worth its weight in gold and their knowledge of best practices, expertise and stellar communication skills got us up and running much faster than I would have thought possible. Five stars!"
"Awesome. Thanks again, Bennett. You’re the only reason we still use Ivanti for Macs."
"Excellent class, and just what we needed. Impossible to find this knowledge elsewhere. Would definitely recommend to others. Thanks again!"
