Why Beacon? Beacon Information Technologies, Inc. has proven to be a very successful enterprise. We enjoy ongoing relationships with many firms in Eastern Nebraska. Indeed Beacon has a very high contract renewal rate due to solid relationships with its customers. Beacon's success can be largely attributed to the strong qualifications of the executive team which is led by Mr. Ray Carter. Mr. Carter has nearly a quarter century of dedicated IT experience. He has served as a technical and executive manager which enables him to anticipate and better support the client's needs.

Ray Carter, founder and President, launched the company in 1997. Mr. Carter leads Beacon's efforts to evolve its business strategies and partner relations. Prior to founding Beacon Information Technologies, Ray spent 11 years contracting as an Engineering Consultant - managing several large data warehouse projects for companies such as First Data and Western Union. With 23 years of experience in large Open Systems architectures, he has been instrumental in the design and deployment of online transaction processing and strategic decision support systems. Mr. Carter is a former Engineering Director for InfoUSA and IT Director for Experian. He also worked for several years as an aerospace engineer for TRW on government contracts and was the lead process and data architect on a proprietary data warehouse for Donnelly Marketing.
