▪ Kentucky-based DMD Data Systems is celebrating its 20th anniversary.
Founded in 1996, by current president Dave Sevigny, the company began with a focus on K-12 school districts across Kentucky. Several years later, the business expanded into state and local governments and higher education. Today, the company has 28 employees serving clients throughout the Southeast and mid-Atlantic with a focus on data center solutions, technical and managed services, and data center support.
