Ethan Group has grown strongly since its inception in 2002 to become an Australian leader in providing next-generation IT and telecommunications (IT&T) services. More than 2,000 clients rely on us as a strategic partner, including many of Australia’s largest banking, education, government, health, insurance, construction, utilities, manufacturing and retail organisations.
Our strong focus on customer needs, innovation, partnerships, and development and training has enabled us to grow by more than 600 per cent since 2002. In 2005, BRW magazine named Ethan Group Australia’s fastest growing company. Between 2002 and 2010, we achieved an average annual growth rate of 68 per cent. During the global financial crisis when 75 per cent of businesses experienced a decline, we grew by 38 per cent.
A key strength is our ability to anticipate market needs then invest in the right people, resources and facilities. In 2009, years before the market came to accept the concept of utility computing, we invested $18 million to build Ethoria™, our cloud platform. Since its launch in early 2012, more than 35,000 users have taken advantage of the pay-as-you-go model, managing their IT and communications needs while reducing costs.
Ethan Group maintains a unique business model based on the shared values of its leadership team and 250 skilled staff. This has resulted in an open, collaborative culture that encourages entrepreneurship among our workforce and support teams.
We are also highly active in the community, and are proud to have donated more than $1.4 million over the past decade to a range of charities, including the Touched by Olivia Foundation, Father Chris Riley’s Youth Off The Streets and the Wesley Mission.
