OUR STORY

THE BEGINNING

My name is Greg Henson, and I am the founder and CEO of Henson Group. I started Henson Group in my tiny one-bedroom apartment in NYC after 9/11. I was the first and only employee for the first nine months.  Now we have offices, employees, partners, and clients  worldwide. We also are the #1 Azure CSP provider and one of seventy Azure Expert MSP companies globally.

THE INSPIRATION

 I was working for Microsoft in NY during 9/11, and after the attack, I volunteered to help businesses rebuild and relocate out of lower Manhattan. This volunteer work became overwhelming, and so I quit Microsoft to help these companies full-time. Once these companies were up and running, they hired me to build and maintain their IT. That’s when I started Henson Group and why we still offer free migrations today as we did after September 11.

THE GROWTH

Henson Group started out as one employee, and grew to 4, and then 12 and have employees worldwide and growing each day.  Henson Group recently ranked #132 on the Inc. 5000 with a growth rate of 2,809.31%. How did we do this without raising any money from Private/Growth equity? It’s simple. We are experts in scaling a highly profitable business using organic revenues and building flywheels for revenue generation and customer satisfaction.

THE FUTURE

We have big plans. We are acquiring companies, going public, launching more customer solutions, and expanding into mainland China and Korea. There's so much we can do because the cloud is one of the few things that affects every business. The cloud is universal, and we harness Azure to improve the lives of our clients. From starting in a little apartment to operating in over 30 countries, we have come a long way.  And corporate responsibility is at the heart of our company all along the way. Our management team is very diverse, and we support diversity, equity and inclusion.  I'm also proud that we also donate thousands to charities every month.   Lastly, we are the only Carbon Neutral Azure Expert MSP, MWBE, and sponsor the Black Channel Partner Alliance, Women in Technology, and Women in Cloud.
