Who We Are

Our Culture is What Connects

Our Origin

Clay Tippins founded The Virtus Solution in January 2019.

His belief is that there are a select set of clients that actually expect Stewardship, Quality, Value/Outcomes with a True Spirit of Service from their IT/Consulting providers and will reward those principles with honorable partnership, business growth and continued entrustment with important problems and opportunities.

Virtus Values

VIRTUS is more than a company name, it’s the Core Values that each Virtus team member lives by and uses to select team members and clients.

VIRTUS is Greek/Latin for “Courage," and each letter of VIRTUS represents a Greek/Latin core value.

Virtus seeks to do business with companies that value these things, and only seeks payment for work conducted in accordance with these values.

Our Team

Our leadership team and consultants grew up in premier Tier 1 consulting, telecom and high-tech environments. The partners have actual real-life experience in industry, meeting P&L’s, delivering outcomes and living with the consequences of decisions. We have a radical passion to be nimble and effective, driving change to the inefficiencies we experienced in this environment.

These industries that are at the base of our expertise are on the frontier of how customers and real people are changing how we live and work together. Whether it's creating a new business model that allows consumers to have more flexibility in products that enable our digital life, or building the technology that makes this reality seamless, Virtus seeks to take on disruptor projects typified by uncertainty, urgency and rapid change.

Often this change needs to be an integrated strategy across the complexity of enterprise systems addressing:
  • Customer (what I need to know and manage about my customer and their experience),
  • Commerce (how I need to create awareness and fulfill demand flexible across all channels) and,
  • Chain (how do I orchestrate and operationalize new services for complex business operations)
