Real Solutions Wins Minority Small Business of the Year (repost)


In April 2015, Reginald Jones II and Jeremy Burton decided to combine their respective IT expertise to found
a company of their own, Real Solutions LLC. Jones, who has seven-plus years of IT experience including development, im- plementation, application maintenance, monitoring and project management, had worked for Fortune 500 companies in- cluding Hudson Bay , CACI and Boeing, and Burton, who has

eight-plus years of IT experience, had developed, designed, architected and man- aged development projects for Fortune 500 companies while holding multiple Agile certifications as well as code pro- ficiency in 10 different programming languages.

The duo knew their experience would help them excel at their business focus: providing IT consulting, enterprise change management, Service Now development/ administration, mobile development,

web development and training. They have since inched out the competition by staying hands-on with all of their clients while growing their business. “We like to understand the intent of what they need first before providing a solution to their problems,” says Burton.

Their tactic has paid off. This year Burton and Jones’ company was named the Minority-Owned Small Business of the Year. “This award represents a significant step towards our company becoming a noteworthy name in the IT servicing industry,” says Burton. “It shows that with hard work and dedication, you can afford any dream you have.”

In the future, Burton and Jones look forward to Real Solutions growing its footprint in the St. Louis area and across the nation, employing St. Louis natives, providing opportunities to minorities and growing its client base.
