Five Iron Technologies is an IT services company built to deliver exceptional quality and value to our clients. We base our approach on the fact that technology should provide significant value to your company rather than simply be an expense.
This approach has enabled us to help our clients grow. We have helped grow an idea sitting in a coffee shop into a national organization. We have developed the infrastructure needed for a company to expand exponentially within just a few months. And we have enabled organizations (many actually) to streamline their infrastructure to be more productive with the resources they already have in place.
Our seasoned and expert staff understands what is at stake—the future and success of your company is largely dependent on the technology we support, and we are built to ensure your future looks bright.

Too many times the human nature is to desire to be heard. At Five Iron Technologies we believe in listening to our client’s needs. If we listen we can assess the needs, understand the infrastructure and help guide our clients to the right solutions. You won’t find hundreds of partner/product logos at the bottom of our website or in any of our discussions. We are not pushing products or agendas – only solutions to problems. We believe in the age-old approach to network design and security that starts with a good foundation. You will hear us reference “root-cause” analysis and understanding WHY something happened not just fixing WHAT happened. Anyone can add blocks or pieces – but not just anyone can build a foundation. That is why we invest in the highest level network engineers – architects capable of hearing the needs and designing the right solution. Our network engineers bring years of experience and multiple industry certifications which again separate us from other solution providers.
Simply put, we are the partner you will come to know and trust. We don’t push solutions simply because we want to sell them; rather, we match technology to your needs and budget, providing you with solutions that both fit your company today and are prepared for your ongoing strategy.
Most importantly, we communicate these solutions with you in a language that you can understand. You will not need any special decoder ring or acronym-dictionary to understand our communication. We help you to fully understand the technologies your company requires and implements so that you can make educated business decisions.
What's In A Name?
Hopefully, the rest of our website answers the questions about WHAT we do. You chose “about us” so we are guessing you want to know a little more about WHO we are and HOW we came up with the name… as the first question people often ask is “what does Five Iron stand for?” It is a fair enough question. Five Iron stands for many things – and that, in essence, is where the name came from.
When forming the company in 2009, founders Jeremy Hopwood and Jason Bradley, knew that branding was important and wanted to establish a name that was easy to remember, still had the (.com) domain space available and was meaningful. Thoughts and ideas were thrown out and names researched. We wanted the name to elicit thoughts when spoken and also have lasting impact. The search started with the word Iron. Iron traditionally conjures up images of strong, secure, and soldiers preparing for battle. A favorite verse from the Bible – Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron – so does one man sharpen another” is one of our guiding principles. We believe that, as a consultant, our services should always leave the client in a better position than we found them. Likewise, we believe that no man is an island unto himself and that a wise man is one who surrounds himself with other wise men to live a lifetime of continual “sharpening”. So – the search was on and to our surprise – all things iron was pretty much taken.
We then stumbled upon fiveiron.com. The domain space was available and as a bonus to us both (avid golf fans) there was a double-meaning for us. We have had a couple folks tell us that the 5iron is the “Club by which all others are measured” because everyone knows exactly how far they hit their 5iron and then simply translate distance to the other clubs. – and we sure strive to make that point true to our clients and peers.
To most the golf connotation is the obvious connection but it is always nice when we can share our beliefs and values as well. We are unashamed and always happy to share that our company was founded by two men who share in the belief that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior and that if not for that one man who came to (save and) sharpen every other man – all would be lost…
