A Company Based on Trust
Founded in 2010, Bryan Hogan launched Afidence out of 9 years of delivering IT excellence as a Managing Partner with a Columbus based consulting firm. Bryan’s experience spans 25 years in the IT Industry and is seeded with a deep sense of integrity, strong business acumen and industry leadership, all of which have further defined the heart and soul of Afidence. It’s these very characteristics that have enabled Afidence to help their clients bridge the gap between business and technology to soundly manage their overall information technology investments.
Grounded on Christian principles and inspired by the belief that organizations long to work with people who have integrity, a name was chosen to represent our most core, foundational value – TRUST through Excellence and Integrity. Accordingly, various words and phrases were researched until we landed on the name “Afidence (pronounced with a long “i”). The name itself is derived from Latin and translates to “joining in trust”.
Highly Collaborative Staff
Afidence continues to attract and retain an enormously talented team of IT professionals that are dedicated to serving our clients. Our resources average over 15 years of IT experience, are among the most talented in the industry, second-to-none in their work disciplines, and are truly enjoyable to work with. These qualities, combined with our highly collaborative / transparent approach to working with clients, have proven to create long-term trusted relationships that are beneficial to both our clients and to Afidence.

No Strings Attached
We believe trust is the foundation of a relationship. Not contracts. Not holding clients hostage with our knowledge. Instead, we believe trust flourishes when we deliver IT services with excellence, provide unbiased advice, demonstrate accountability, and communicate with transparency.
One of our foundational achievements is our Global Engagement Methodology (or GEM™). GEM™ is the mechanism in which we ensure effective communications, project execution, and knowledge transfer. For example, through GEM™, every Afidence consultant is required to document their activities through Daily Status Reports. The result is that our clients know what we know – they are not held hostage to our company because we are the only ones who have the knowledge about their IT systems.
