“My grandfather founded HCM in 1962. As the third-generation owner-operator, it has been vitally important for me to strategically grow HCM in a way that best serves our clients and associates and honors our company’s heritage of client service. As a long-term partner of enVista, we have had the opportunity to work side-by-side with their leadership and project teams and observe their talent, integrity, passion and commitment to delivering client results. We are very proud to officially join enVista. This move will bring added value to our HCM client base that will benefit from a single solutions partner to solve their complex supply chain and commerce challenges, and our associates will certainly benefit from expanded professional growth opportunities. I am excited for what the future holds for our combined organizations,” says Charlie Hillebold, president of HCM Systems.
