Corporate Rebrand Ushers in New Era Marked by Expanded Leadership Team, New Office Space and Hiring
Corterra Solutions, formerly Heartland Business Systems, today announced it has rebranded with a new corporate name and identity. The change ushers in a new era for the 26-year-old company.
“While stepping away from our legacy name was a difficult choice, we’re excited that our new image strongly reflects the expertise of our people and caliber of services we deliver,” said Ted Lindholm, President of Corterra Solutions. “Our reputation for exceptional technology consulting and client service has guided every step of our rebrand. Corterra – which translates to ‘Heartland’ – builds on this legacy by offering an expanded portfolio of cloud and digital services to address our clients’ technology challenges.”
To support its global client base, Corterra is hiring for several open positions, including Solution Architect, Business Systems Analyst and Software Developer. Corterra’s new corporate identity, website and flexible work environment, along with progressive workplace culture initiatives, are part of a strategy to become an employer of choice for business technology consulting services. Corterra is conveniently located in new office space at Arboretum Lakes in Lisle just off Interstate 88 at Route 53.
