How We Started
Overture Partners was founded in 2001 by a group of IT staffing industry veterans who saw a better way than the status quo to deliver staffing services. Our vision included adding more precision, more predictability, higher quality, less red tape and less wasted time for everyone involved…especially our clients. We began with the task of “Refining the Art of IT Services”…and we’ve been highly successfully carving out our place in the New England marketplace. Now we’re addressing the future…one that will be dependent upon totally new ways of leveraging cloud-based services, flexible on-demand teams, and even shorter development deadlines. We’re providing critical workforce fluidity to our clients and consultants, and doing it faster and with greater precision than ever before.
To build, strengthen and retain a community of trusted relationships with our clients, employees and partners by understanding and anticipating individual needs. We hold ourselves responsible for continuous improvement through shared experiences, personal growth, mentoring, and effective communication. We embrace flexibility in efficiently providing superior service through our shared knowledge, experience and documented process. We commit to fairness and integrity, and foster a culture of sharing our success through charitable outreach in our community.
