The H2M Story

H2M Group was established by three US Military Veterans who wanted to continue serving the mission but without the red tape of large business. Paul and Melissa came up with the idea of a partnership while attending a baseball game, and then all three of us met for our first “implementation” meeting in John’s garage! Our name was created by grouping all 3 partner last names: H2M.

The H2M Group founders work seamlessly together, each bringing specialized experience to the company. They’ve found a winning combination of management expertise, technical skills, and extensive networks to meet customer needs and grow the business.

Our dream is to advance our core mission areas with innovative services and solutions. We are doing this today by hiring the best and brightest that our industry has to offer.
