Roy Roberts, President and CEO
Alliance of Professionals & Consultants, Inc. (APC) was founded in 1993 by Roy Roberts after retiring from IBM.
Today, APC remains committed to the same core values that Roberts first put forth and that continue to anchor the company’s success - solid ethics, unwavering integrity, open communications, empathic caring, and a constant focus on quality and excellence.
"APC’s commitment to our values is extremely important," said Roberts. "It is what differentiates our approach, our people and our relationships. Holding true to these founding principles has enabled us to attract amazingly talented people and work with some of the world’s finest organizations. It has also enabled both our clients’ and our company to succeed."
