This event is open to the press.
“w3r is proud to bring its headquarters and workforce to our new space in Southfield,” said Eric Hardy, w3r C.E.O. and Chairman of the Michigan Black Chamber of Commerce. “We are a growing brand, but we place a high priority on building community and giving back, and we believe Southfield is a city that also emphasizes our sense of ‘community.’ As this city grows we hope to grow with it, and that this move encourages the development of w3r as a national leader,” said Hardy, who also chairs the Community Care Services Board for Henry Ford Health System.

“w3r is at home in Southfield,” said Keith Echols, w3r Executive Vice President and President of the Southfield Black Chamber of Commerce. “We believe, first and foremost, that we are here to support our clients, but beyond that we have an important role to play in rebuilding Michigan and leading the state forward through entrepreneurship. Having our headquarters in Southfield allows us to be right in the middle of all of the redevelopment going on, and to play a role in the future of both our urban and suburban neighbors,” said Echols.
The company’s success is the result of a college friendship between Hardy and Patrick Tomina, w3r C.F.O and member of the Chaldean American Chamber of Commerce. The pair of engineers met and grew close at the University of Michigan, and saw a moment of tremendous opportunity in the field of information technology. Two years into their business relationship and company development, Echols joined their team and w3r Consulting was formed.
