Southfield, MI – May 15th, 2014 – Coretek Services’ Chief Executive Officer, Ron Lisch, was named Leader & Innovator by sponsors Lawrence Technological University, WWJ Newsradio 950 and the Technology Report. Every year, the committee selects an elite class of Michigan-based leaders and innovators who either demonstrate unique abilities or create extraordinary ideas or products, which enhance their profession, as well as strengthen and diversify Michigan’s economy.
Coretek has experienced tremendous growth over the past nine years and has grown from a group of four to over one hundred professionals. Lisch’s vision and dedication to creating a culture where great people want to work has been recognized by the National Association for Business Resources, the National 101 Best & Brightest and Detroit’s 101 Best & Brightest committees.
Lisch and his team at Coretek consult with clients to design and deliver high-value IT solutions. Their approach is to leverage existing investments, particularly in the healthcare space, to meet the needs of large hospitals and enterprise clients across the country. Coretek’s unique solution, the Virtual Clinical Workstation (VCW), was designed with clinicians in mind, and speeds access to Electronic Medical Records (EMR) so they can spend more time with patients. VCW has been adopted by over one hundred hospitals across the country because it accelerates acceptance of EMR and improves patient care.
“I am honored to receive this award,” stated Ron Lisch, “We couldn’t have experienced this tremendous growth without an awesome team of talented team with a great attitude and remarkable integrity.”
Lisch has been a business leader in metro Detroit for over 28 years and moved here after he graduated from Indiana University Bloomington’s Kelley School of Business. He started his career at Unisys as an accountant. He soon discovered his passion for Information Technology (IT) and sales and he joined a small systems integrator called The Lead Group. After a series of buyouts and acquisitions of that company, he found himself working for Siemens IT Professional Services Group. During his decade of tenure at Siemens, he was consistently named as a top regional and national sales representative. In 2003, Lisch applied his talents in a different direction and started a successful real estate development company, Kolbe Properties. He soon began to miss working in the IT industry, however, where his true passion lies. Despite Kolbe Properties’ success, Lisch sold the company in 2005 and that same year Coretek was born.
