First Pier was created when founder Steve Pogson decided to leave his corporate consulting job in Manhattan to move to Portland, Maine and pursue his own independent consulting business. After ten years managing strategic IT initiatives for large, high-powered Fortune 100 companies (like Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Sony, and State Farm Insurance), Steve craved the small business experience. With the launch of First Pier, Steve focused on creating a consulting company centered on deeper, more long-term relationships with clients.
Armed with a skill set that spans a variety of industries, First Pier operates with a clear goal in mind: to bring the same high-quality technology consulting that large businesses enjoy to a personal, more local level. To enable smaller businesses to do more with less.
First Pier offers full-service IT consulting and web solutions out of beautiful, bustling Portland, Maine and beyond.
