Alison leads xScion with a true passion for quality and doing business the right way from the start. Whether it be a new client engagement, an operational challenge or managing and mentoring internal talent, her focus is always placed on inspiring others to think outside of the box so we can together move the needle forward.
In 2002, Alison created xScion based on one simple principle – treat people the way you want to be treated while having fun doing it. From true organic growth, this basic premise has proven to be successful as xScion continues to prosper and grow each year. In the early days of xScion history, we supported just about anything that a current or potential client would demand of us. Fast forward to our current state – known internally as xScion 2.0 – and you will find a more sophisticated organization with a technology consulting and solutions business model that is well positioned for sizable growth.
