History[edit]

Edgewater Technology (Edgewater) was founded in 1992 by Shirley Singleton and David Clancey. Shirley Singleton served as the company's president from 1992 through 2002. The company grew from a five-person shop to a 150-person professional services organization before being acquired in 1999 by StaffMark, a publicly traded international billion dollar staffing organization. Edgewater was an operating subsidiary focusing on project-based IT consultancy business under the StaffMark organization. In January 2002, StaffMark changed its name to Edgewater Technology, Inc., as well as its Nasdaq ticker to EDGW, and moved its public company structure from Fayetteville, Arkansas to Wakefield, Massachusetts. Shirley Singleton was then named the company's president and chief executive officer.

In April 2004, Edgewater Technology, Inc. nominated Paul Guzzi, the President and chief executive officer of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, to serve on board of directors.[2]

In December 2005, Edgewater Technology, Inc. appointed Nancy Leaming, the president and chief executive officer for Tufts Health Plan, to serve on board of directors.[3]

In November 2010, Edgewater Ranzal opened an office in London UK.[4]

In June 2012, Edgewater was invited to participate in the NASDAQ closing ceremony to celebrate its 20th anniversary.[5]

In November 2018, Edgewater Technology was acquired by the Alithya Group.[6]
