About Us

A note from our Founder, Harold Leo:

I started L3 to empower businesses. Our team brings together more than 60 years of IT experience and thought leadership, working across healthcare, finance, and retail institutions. While working with a healthcare customer on a data solution storing critical private patient information, the need for creating a better business became clear.

The customer required improved RPO/RTO, relocation of storage resources, several process innovations, while attempting to work through corporate bureaucracy that was extending the project timelines. It was clear that creating a differentiated service offering that addressed not only the technology solution but also the people and process was important to create a complete solution. L3 is inspired by learnings from this challenging customer project and many others.

Our approach is to minimize pitfalls in purchasing IT products and solutions, and help our customers meet their business needs while meeting their budgetary requirements and project timelines. Our service offerings are flexible and aim to improve operational efficiency of IT teams to best support their customers.
