OWG was founded in 2018 by industry veterans Brandon Marks and Nick Rigali to bring a new way of delivering technology solutions to mid-sized organizations in Southern California, New York and New Jersey. Brandon comes to the table with 20 years of experience after starting his own firm in 2001, and Nick brings 16 years of IT experience and 8 years of industry experience since opening his firm in 2014. Many members of the OWG team have over 10 years of experience in the industry.
Today, we work with organizations across a number of industries, including accounting, PR, healthcare, legal, and others, and we have international reach throughout North America, EMEA, and APAC. OWG partners with companies to be a part of their journey while helping them achieve the results they’re striving for through technology.
When you work with OWG, we don’t see you as a “client.” We see you as a partner. In fact, the word “client” is not even allowed to be used in our organization. As a result, we truly see you as a partner and your success is our success. OWG will be with you every step of the way when it comes to your IT journey.
We work tirelessly to ensure you have access to the technology that will not only help you achieve your short-term goals, but your long-term ones as well. OWG offers IT consulting services to businesses like yours to overcome challenges, achieve growth, and gain an edge on competitors. We are determined to drive outcomes and deliver on our commitments.
There are quite a lot of options out there when it comes to accounting technology. Our experts help ensure you’re using the best software to support your partners, while always keeping security and efficiency top of mind. We also offer extended support hours during tax seasons.
Law offices deal regularly with security- and time-sensitive paperwork, and it’s essential to work with a partner that understands the industry’s unique needs. OWG has the expertise and experience in legal work that can help make IT hassles, concerns, and roadblocks a thing of the past.
Strong security, better communication, and a solid infrastructure are all must-haves in the healthcare industry. OWG works to ensure that those in healthcare have access to the tools they need to perform their jobs to the best of their ability, while always keeping compliance in mind.
Even if you don’t fit into one of these 3 industries, we have cloud and technology solutions available for you. We assist advertising and creative agencies, PR firms, and more with creative IT solutions and consulting services that allow you to gain a competitive edge.
