Wichita, Kan. — (September 17, 2020) — High Touch Technologies is excited to announce recent changes to its Executive team, helping drive the company’s ongoing growth as a comprehensive technology solutions provider.
High Touch got its start as a software development company in the 1980s. Over the past few decades, the company has diversified its business to become a complete technology, software and business communications provider. With these modifications to High Touch’s leadership at the executive level, president and CEO Derrick Nielsen is confident that High Touch has the knowledge, leadership and processes in place to foster the company’s growth.
“Providing the best technology solutions for our clients has been essential for accelerating High Touch’s growth as the company has transitioned from an industry-specific software company to a full-scale solutions provider, “ states Nielsen. “With these changes at the executive level, I believe we have the right leaders with the right skills to meet more of our clients’ needs as an all-encompassing technology solutions partner.”

Current company leaders Kevin Colborn and Amy Mounts have accepted enhanced roles to help lead High Touch’s Technology Solutions teams, which are responsible for providing solutions and services such as managed IT, networking and cybersecurity.
