We are very excited to announce that the founder of Chicago IT consultant Business Knowledge Systems, Chad Holstead, is one of just 19 Chicago-area business owners to receive a 2016 Chicago Business Ledger Entrepreneurial Excellence Award. The Business Ledger is a publication of the Chicago Daily Herald Newspaper.

Chad and BKS were honored in the Growth category, which recognizes significant revenue growth over a two-year period. As an honoree, Chad will be featured in an upcoming edition of the Business Ledger and will attend an awards ceremony at the Naperville Hilton Hotel in September.

“This is a terrific honor not only for me, but for the entire BKS team,” Chad said. “To think that I started this company with just one employee and one client, and to have witnessed the incredible growth of one of Chicago’s best IT consulting companies has been amazing.”

We have grown our business through relationships and referrals from present and past customers. BKS Systems has undergone exceptional growth and expansion since its inception; over 90% provided by referrals from satisfied clients.

BKS Systems is committed to protecting clients’ technology investments and providing the highest quality of advice, planning, and ongoing IT.

BKS has one office in Plainfield, IL. Our team is geographically located throughout the Northern Illinois area to provide the best support to our customers throughout the region.

The nomination for the award was submitted by Darren Fox, the owner of Chicago Web Design company, Idea Marketing Group. Darren has been a business associate of Chad’s for about five years. Idea Marketing Group designed, and has since redesigned, the BKS website.

“I was happy to nominate Chad and BKS for this honor,” Darren said. “He runs a great IT company, and it’s been a pleasure working with him for these last five years. I look forward to many more years of working together.”
