VLCM Celebrates 40 Years of Helping Utah Get IT Right

Salt Lake City, UT, Release: March 1, 2023.

VLCM, the biggest IT solution provider in the State of Utah, marks its 40th anniversary


VLCM will be celebrating its 40th anniversary throughout 2023 through online and in-person events, starting at VLCM’s IT eXchange Conference and Trade Show on March 22, 2023, at Mountain America Expo Center. IT eXchange is VLCM’s marquee event and is open to all IT professionals free thanks to VLCM’s participating partners. The one-day show features over 50 IT vendors, 24 presentations geared to optimizing IT strategy, and gamified participation with thousands in prizes and swag.


VLCM started as a company that sold center-pivot irrigation systems to farmers. "We thought farmers could use computers to make their life a little easier, so we applied to be an IBM reseller,” said VLCM’s Founder, Rich Linton, “We were chosen out of a pool of three-hundred applicants to distribute the IBM PC throughout the West. Since then, we expanded from just a handful of employees to more than 130 employees today."


Since the early days of 1983, VLCM has grown from selling computers to farmers to equipping organizations of all shapes and sizes with enterprise data, technology, and cybersecurity solutions and services. VLCM solves complex business problems by consulting, designing and implementing the best technology solutions for its clients. The company accomplishes this by partnering with a wide range of technology vendors and employing over 25 talented engineers.

VLCM CEO Mike Linton said, “We’re excited to celebrate our 40th year in business. We credit our longevity and success to the people we work with every day. Every employee, every client, and every vendor partner has made it possible for VLCM to survive and thrive for so many years. It’s been quite the journey to see how VLCM has grown, changed, and adapted many times over to stay relevant and innovative amidst the ever-changing technology landscape while staying true to our core purpose of taking care of all those we work with. I am deeply grateful to all who have helped us get to 40 years in business, and I’m excited for the next 40.”


In its 40 years, VLCM has stood out in the industry, receiving accolades from CRN, MountainWest Capital Network, The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Business Magazine, and fellow partners for extraordinary service to customers from Arctic Wolf, Aruba Networks, Fortinet, and NetSPI, among others.
