This award recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their business and community.
John Klein and partner Jason Stortz started their software consulting business five years ago in Klein’s basement. Since its humble beginnings, Redstone Content Solutions has grown to become a nationally recognized leader among information technology service businesses.
“John is recognized by his fellow EOers as a leader who lives the EO Vision of business growth, personal development and community engagement,” stated Rowena Crosbie, President, Tero International, Inc. “He exemplifies the EO core values each day.”
“When John told me he had left his secure, corporate position five years ago to start Redstone, (at the absolute depth of the Great Recession), I had a flashback to when my dad started our company under similar circumstances. Any “expert” would have told John that the economy was in shambles and it was the absolute worst time to start a new business, but in classic entrepreneur fashion, John and his partner, as well as their families, ignored conventional wisdom and believed in their dreams, ideas, and most of all, themselves. It is no surprise to me that John is receiving this award,” noted Will Moon, President, Iowa 80 Group.
In May, the Quad Cities Chamber named Klein’s company the 2014 Small Business Excellence Award winner in the 1-50 employee category. Redstone received high marks based on their display of innovation, leadership, community involvement, company history and organizational culture.
