Coretek Services is an industry-leading IT professional services and consulting firm headquartered in Farmington Hills, MI. Coretek’s goal is to help our clients in various industries achieve and sustain predictable and effective IT results.

We’ve been at it since 2005 and today, have expert staff members delivering innovative, high value solutions to our customers. Strong relationships and excellent people drive our business.

The customer’s environment dictates our IT solution — not the other way around. Coretek carefully assesses current IT investments, specific use cases, and workflow before recommending products or services.  Coretek is technology agnostic. We specialize in infrastructure project services such as:

  • Server, Desktop, and User Virtualization
  • Complex Migration (Windows 10, Active Directory, MS Exchange)
  • Data Center Modernization
  • Cloud Enablement
  • Mobility & End User Device Strategies
  • Project Management
  • Systems Management

Our Values are Found in Everything We Do:

We are professionals; we are accountable and never say, “It’s not my job.”
We are upfront on what we say we will do, and then we do it.
We build strong relationships with clients, partners, community, and most importantly, with each other.

The Mission That Drives Us . . .

Customer success! No exceptions!

We’re not perfect, but we want your project experience to be. It’s the challenge that both motivates and rewards us every day.

Social Responsibility and Community Involvement

Coretek Services believes in developing and maintaining strong relationships with our clients, our partners, and our community.  Coretek is driven to make a positive impact through involvement with local families, community organizations, and charities around the globe.

Internationally, Coretek teamed up with Kids Alive International to help orphaned boys in South Sudan by providing a home and for basic need such a food, clothing, shelter and education. Both religious and civil wars have devastated the region and the lives of these young boys.  We seek to give these boys hope and a future filled with opportunity.

Locally in Southeast Michigan, Coretek employees and family members worked together on service projects such as rehabilitating homes and supporting the local food bank.  Recently, we transformed the house of a local couple who, because of health issues, had gotten behind on the up keep of their home. We were honored to return their house to a functional and relaxing home.

Coretek also partners with Toys for Tots, Shalom Ministry, eWay Ministries, Leaders International, UNICEF, Barnabas International, Allegro Solutions Co., Anna Lisa Mission, I.N. Network, Sacred Heart Rehabilitation Center, Campus Crusade for Christ, Cadence International, and Forgotten Harvest.

Katherine Austin

Human Resources Director

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”

Katherine has been part of the Coretek leadership team since the beginning and drives excellence and growth with metrics to achieve results.

She began as Director of Operations bringing a broad range of hands-on responsibilities in the areas of Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Payroll and Bookkeeping. She ensured revenue streams were positive and that vendor and employee payment systems were in place. In addition, she developed key reports and metrics to help leadership assess performance. In this role, Katherine was also in charge of Human Resources which included recruiting, on-boarding, benefits negotiation and employee communication.

As Coretek grew from a company of 4 to well over 100, so did the need for a full time Human Resources Director.

She continues to lead the company in hiring a high caliber team within the practices of Infrastructure Consulting, Systems Integration, and Enterprise Project Management Specialties.
