ST. CHARLES, Mo.— Today the Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) announced that Ardent IT Solutions, LLC, a St. Charles-based startup founded in 2016, is already experiencing rapid growth and has plans to invest in the community, adding as many as 10 technical, sales and administrative positions over the next couple years.
“This is another win for Missouri. I recently spoke with the owners of Ardent IT Solutions. They told about me how proud they are of being able to create jobs in their hometown. It was a pleasure to hear the excitement in their voices as they talk about their business. As a small startup company, Justin Klutenkamper and David Hunn also appreciate some of the things we are doing here to make it easier for them to do what they do best—run their business. We are working for them by reducing red tape and making it easier for workers to make their own decisions regarding unions. I want to thank these entrepreneurs for choosing to grow in the community they love and create jobs for families in our state. Congratulations and thank you for growing Missouri and adding to our tech sector,” said Gov. Eric Greitens.
Ardent IT Solutions provides professional IT services, technology consulting, managed services and operates as a value-added reseller to its growing portfolio of St. Charles County and St. Louis based companies.
“As St. Charles natives, we are incredibly excited about the opportunity to grow our business here and give back to this community. We are proud to see the technology growth in the St. Louis market and couldn’t be happier to contribute to the success of our community,” said David Hunn, joint-owner and Director of Technology.
Server and network infrastructure design and support, data backup, application delivery and user support are some of their core services. Ardent IT consultants and technicians help companies identify and correct problems with their systems and develop new and innovative solutions to meet their business’ technology needs and budgets.
“We are thrilled and proud that Ardent IT Solutions is investing and growing in this community. It demonstrates that technology continues to play a major role in the economic growth of St. Charles,” said St. Charles Mayor Sally A. Faith. “From the OPO Startups to our long list of industry leaders; companies are discovering the tremendous assets of being part of the St. Charles landscape. I want to congratulate Ardent IT on their success and wish them many more years of growth.”
“Today, technology plays a crucial role in managing our business, from back-of-office systems to fan-facing services such as public Wi-Fi and ticketing,” said St. Louis Cardinals Information Technology Director, Perry Yee. “We understand the importance of maintaining up-to-date and secure systems and are confident in our decision to work closely with Ardent IT Solutions to support those efforts.”
