Sam Coluccio is a principal and co-founder of ITK Solutions Group. With 15+ years of consulting expertise under his belt, Sam has successfully created and lead restructuring initiatives for senior consulting teams, retail organizations and Fortune 500 companies. He has developed a “process first, technology second” consulting approach that emphasizes the importance of aligning software solutions with business processes – not the other way around.
Prior to launching ITK, Sam was the National Director of MCS (Microsoft Consulting Services) for AX and CRM. He spearheaded efforts at Microsoft to reorganize their Dynamics consulting services organization, and was instrumental in building the offshore practice for MSFT in Hyderabad, India. He helped make MCS a profitable business with 6x the revenue compared to when he took over. As importantly, Sam created and deployed the first comprehensive ERP/CRM implementation methodology, SureStep, which was later adopted by the partner channel worldwide and is the standard for all AX implementations. This reengineered consulting practice allowed Microsoft to move away from just being a dev platform into a solution for upper-mid market and enterprise companies. Before Microsoft, Sam was VP of Retail Consulting for Lawson Software where he built a regional and national practice with sustained growth.
Sam’s ability to recruit, hire, train and retain strong business professionals in his practice is a thread running throughout his career. He has a strong passion for innovation, and a truly entrepreneurial spirit. Sam continues to strive for improved results with every engagement, going beyond “best practices” to achieve real value for each of his clients.
