BravePoint was one of the first IT companies to recognize the demand for skilled technical consultants in Progress technologies. Founded in 1987 under the name Comsys, the company quickly saw rapid growth, compounding in value at an annual rate of 21% over the next 10 years. In 1991, Comsys was purchased by Chesapeake Utilities Corporation (NYSE: CPK) and became United Systems, Inc. (USI). Chesapeake Utilities Corporation is a diversified utility company engaged in natural gas distribution, transmission and marketing; electric distribution; propane distribution and wholesale marketing; advanced information services and other related businesses. Information about Chesapeake Utilities Corporation and the Chesapeake family of businesses is available at http://www.chpk.com. As market needs expanded, so did the range of products and services USI offered. In 2001, USI changed its name to BravePoint to reflect a bold new approach to meeting tough business challenges and to describe the wide but focused suite of solutions the company offered at a single point of contact. BravePoint has developed applications and provided training and consulting for companies as diverse as ADP, Northrop Grumman, US Army and Navy, Johns Hopkins University, Eaton and many others. In each case, our clients have benefited from our understanding of how technology can be used to drive their profits.
