“Innovation and idea creation are the buzz and currency of the 21st century marketplace. But innovation without market application is an unrealized opportunity. At Nerac we strive to create value for customers by distilling simplicity and purpose in a world of nearly infinite choices amid information chaos.”
Since acquiring the company in 1999, President and CEO Kevin Bouley has guided steady growth that has more than doubled the company’s size and garnered five consecutive Deloitte & Touche Technology Fast 50 awards given to Connecticut companies.
As one of the primary architects of Nerac’s business model transformation, Bouley credits the company’s success to a staff empowered via its ESOP culture. And his approach to organizational leadership carries over into the valuable services Nerac offers clients.
As an entrepreneur and leader of an entrepreneurial organization, nothing thrills me more than seeing our fingerprints on the new products and applications our customers bring to market,” Mr. Bouley says. “We celebrate and take pride in our client’s victories as though they were our own.”
Mr. Bouley, who has spent his entire career at Nerac, worked in sales and various accounting positions for seven years before being promoted to Vice President in 1987. Since then, he has been acquiring, developing and honing the skills that have made him an effective leader.
A Connecticut native, Mr. Bouley holds a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Connecticut. He is past president for the Association of Information and Dissemination Centers, and he is president of the National Federation of Advanced Information Services. He also serves on the University of Connecticut School of Engineering Advisory Board and the International Council for Scientific and Technical Information Board, and he has served on the boards of the Connecticut Technology Council and the Connecticut Business and Industry Association. In 2010, he was inducted into the University of Connecticut School of Engineering Academy of Distinguished Engineers, and in 2014 he was inducted into the School of Business Hall of Fame.
