Over the past 15 years, I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of nonprofit organizations, with a lot of lessons learned. One of the most important has been the difficulty and the importance of leadership transitions; especially when they involve the founder of the organization.
Let me continue to tell the story of the exciting changes at Community IT this month and what we’ve done over the years to ensure that Community IT and its legacy of mission-focused nonprofit work survives long term.
July marks a significant transition for us at Community IT. July 11th Johan Hammerstrom will become CEO & President.

“Community IT has been an integral part of furthering our mission, and their reliable tech support and advice has allowed us to incorporate technology into our programs, and focus on what is

“Community IT puts a very high value on customer service. Their staff is highly qualified, and takes their jobs very seriously. We have no other vendor that treats us so well. I would not hesitate to recommend Community IT to friends and colleagues, and have done so in the past.”

“By outsourcing to Community IT, we have been able to stay focused on our mission without getting bogged down in an area that is outside our core business. I was skeptical of outsourcing at first, but it has been a very positive improvement for our entire organization.”
“I serve as the liaison between our organization and Community IT. Their staff at all levels are engaged as well as pro-active, reliable and resolve issues in a timely manner. Community IT provides us with monitoring software that is always running to make sure everything is working smoothly.
