Scaling a New Mountain: A-LIGN Re-imagines its Identity
Where we've been
In 2009, Managing Partner Scott Price and Partner Gene Geiger came together and declared A-LIGN open for business. Scott had been providing clients with compliance solutions for nearly 20 years. Before starting A-LIGN, Scott served as co-founder and President of SAS 70 Solutions – the first-ever CPA firm to specialize in SAS 70 audits. Gene had spent his career implementing and assessing information technology controls against published standards including PCI DSS, FedRAMP, FISMA, ISO 27001, and HIPAA/HITECH. Before A-LIGN, Gene was responsible for the PCI DSS compliance of a Fortune 500 company.
The knowledge and experience behind this new firm would surely help it grow. And grow it did. Now in 2015, this small firm has grown into an enterprise with nearly 50 employees.
Change that reflects our success
As things grow, they change. A-LIGN has just gone through its most radical change since opening its doors. We have a completely new look built from the ground up with the help of Kinesis, a marketing firm out of Portland, Oregon.
Gone is the old yellow and black logo and in its place is the new mountain icon. The “mountain” symbolizes the journey customers embark on with A-LIGN. Like scaling a mountain, security audits and compliance can be difficult, stressful, and easy to lose one’s way. A-LIGN is the guide companies seeking compliance need.
We’ll be there from the start, helping customers reach their compliance goals, and stay with them even after the summit has been reached. This is the foundation of A-LIGN’s new image, philosophy, and culture.
“We cannot lower the mountain, therefore we must elevate ourselves.” – Todd Skinner
