The Core3 Solutions Story

Two guys who met over coffee back in 1997. They walked out with an idea—and a company—Core3 Solutions. Their big idea was really simple; become one organization comprised of the right people who help organizations, big or small, move forward by finding intelligent solutions through ongoing partnerships.

It started as one company with two offerings: managed IT services and website design and quickly outgrew that, offering more services. Website design grew into a full, digital marketing offering, adding user experience, digital strategy, inbound content marketing, paid and organic search, and social media marketing.

As the digital side grew, so did the IT side, adding phone installations, Apple support, Windows migrations and VoIP services. It soon became apparent that the two disciplines needed to split off into dedicated firms on their own.

The IT side of the business was spun out and eventually sold. The design side evolved into a full service digital marketing agency headed by Paul Chambers called Element5 Digital.

Core3 Solutions became the holding company for Element5 as well as four additional companies:
