It’s all about balance. The founders started 7Sigma Systems, Inc. based on the principles that everyone on the team DOES matter, and the team can do more together if they are balanced and finely tuned.
Frank Kaim, CEO & Co-Founder
Frank has worked in a variety of companies both large and small. 7Sigma Systems, Inc. was a dream after having seen all the inefficient companies and the empty promises that never materialized. Hard work, ability to think creatively, and accountability all matter in this business. Doing “smart” IT is great, but without the core culture around delivering excellent product, service, software, or intellectual property, it doesn’t carry as much weight.
Prior to co-founding 7Sigma, Frank spent over 10 years in the information security space working for Fortune 250 integrators, managed security providers, and online security services ventures. He built several businesses around IT services, selling end-to-end solutions to his customers.
Amidst working hard to serve the needs of the customers, Frank makes the most of his free-time. His favorite bike today is a Specialized Tarmac SL4. During the colder months, he enjoys a day in the mountains or at the local ski hill.
Andy Rangen, COO, & Co-Founder
Andy has an unparalleled work ethic. Ask any of 7Sigma’s clients, and they will talk about Andy’s technical style and ability to make things work for them. He too had a dream in 7Sigma, and after winding down a start-up in 2001, he saw an opportunity to work with the SMB markets, in telecommunications, to help modernize and streamline their operations. He too craves efficiency and is the primary reason 7Sigma Systems, Inc. doesn’t have a physical office. “Going to the office takes time, time that could be spent working on customer needs.”
Prior to co-founding 7Sigma, Andy ran an ISP backend while attending school full time. He also participated in varsity sport which took him all over the Midwest and country Alpine Ski Racing.
Andy’s favorite bike today, is a Specialized S-Works Epic 29′r, which he rides as much as time permits which is never enough.
