For Danielle Fitzgerald and David Tadlock, owners of Grace Technology Systems, the commitment to their client base runs as deep as their Colorado roots. “We are both born and raised in Colorado, and so were our families,” says Fitzgerald. In fact, their great-grandparents both lived in Leadville, the historic Colorado mining town listed as the highest, (elevation 10,152 feet), incorporated city in the U.S. Their families still live in Colorado and the Grace in Grace Technology Systems is the name of Fitzgerald’s twelve year old daughter. “Grace reminds us of why we work for a living and always keeps our priorities in check,” smiles Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald and Tadlock started their own company in 2014 and they have earned a solid reputation which has helped them build a portfolio of high profile clients throughout the Greater Denver area. And now, on the eve of the company’s first anniversary they have been named the security partner for The Westin Hotel at Denver International Airport. “Grace is very excited to be the security partner for The Westin,” says Fitzgerald. “Not only is the hotel breathtaking, the technology installed is state-of-the-art. This is a win-win for Denver and for Grace Technology Systems.”
Dedication to their clients and to the community is a cornerstone of the Grace Technology Systems philosophy. “When we turn prospects into clients we treat their business like we are truly a partner in their success,” says Fitzgerald. In addition to their hands-on approach in business they are both actively involved in local philanthropy. “David spends a tremendous amount of time working for the betterment of schools and students throughout Colorado,” says Fitzgerald. This includes his work with the Big Idea Project and in his role as Board Vice-Chair of the Capital Construction Assistance Board (CCAB) which is part of the Colorado Board of Education’s BEST Grant Program.
The Big Idea Project helps high schoolers from across the state develop leadership skills by working in teams to adopt a community project, work with mentors to develop a plan, and then initiating change. At the end of each semester the student groups are able to present their projects for an opportunity to earn college scholarships. The BEST Grant Program helps charter schools and educational facilities build new schools and improve existing structures.
There are several ways to get involved with the Big Idea Project including becoming a mentor, partnering with an educator, or offering your unique skill set with pro bono work. The impact you can have on a young life right here in Colorado can make a difference in helping to develop generous leaders of tomorrow.
Community is what led Fitzgerald and Tadlock to the Greater Glendale Chamber of Commerce. “We are new to the chamber, just a few short months,” laughs Fitzgerald. “But as a new business it’s been great to talk to other business leaders and get feedback from them. The Chamber feels like a built-in business support system!”
The Chamber is committed to the success of its members, a philosophy in-line with Grace Technology Systems. “We pride ourselves on providing long-term partnerships around the best technology systems. Our clients should expect our mission to fulfill theirs,” says Fitzgerald. She continues, “Our excellence in customer service is absolute and non-negotiable.”
