IT/IQ was founded as West Pacific Consulting Group in 2002. The goal was to bring creativity, flexibility, and a true spirit of partnership into an industry that had earned the reputation for being transactional and short-sighted.
WPCG quickly grew from a one-person, one-room operation to be one of the highest performing technical recruitment firms in Western Canada. In 2015, WPCG underwent a period of introspection, which led to a recommitment to our values, a relocation to the heart of downtown Vancouver, and the transition to the IT/IQ brand.
IT/IQ more accurately reflects and encompasses the people and the industry it serves, and is aligned with the company’s long-term strategic imperative of expanding into new geographic markets.
“This transformation is very exciting, and long overdue,” says president and founder, Feras Elkhalil. “Although WPCG has been a recognizable brand in our industry for years, it doesn’t accurately describe who we are, nor did it resonate with the people we work with every day. IT/IQ perfectly captures our team’s focus on IT, and our brand promise accurately describes our clients, and the thousands of IT professionals we work with every year.”
