Who We Are

From Day One, Strategic Integrators has been committed to extraordinary customer service and earning the role of Trusted Advisor from our clients.

Strategic Integrators was founded in 2006 in the belief that a business committed to extraordinary client service, excellence, attention to detail and follow-through could thrive in the information technology marketplace. We find proof of the success of that commitment in a growing list of extremely satisfied clients — large and small, corporate and government, private and public. Another measure of Strategic Integrators' success is being named to the Inc. 5000 as one of the fastest-growing, privately held companies in America ... for three years running. We believe this kind of growth has only been made possible by our laser focus — from Day One — on our Mission and Values.

Mission & Values

The principles which make up our mission and values are more than just catch phrases for the team at Strategic Integrators. They are at the heart of what we're about, at the core of who we are. They are our focus every day, every week, every month, every year. We believe that any success we’ve enjoyed has been because of our commitment to this mission and these values.


Strategic Integrators is committed to becoming one of the leading integrators of IT solutions across the U.S and around the globe. We will achieve this with an unswerving commitment to hiring exceptional people at every level within the organization and pursuing every opportunity to become trusted advisors for our clients with professionalism and passion. We will strive to live out the Company’s mission and values every day, every week, every month, every year. As we do so, we will build an ever-growing cadre of clients and employees who are fiercely loyal to our firm, thus ensuring the establishment and growth of an enduring, great, and profitable company.


Four core values comprise the foundation upon which Strategic Integrators has been built: extraordinary client service, excellence, follow-through, and attention to detail. With a laser focus on providing superb client service and an adherence to the ideals behind these key values, Strategic Integrators commits to completing every job with the success of the client at the forefront. As we hold to this focus and these values, we will realize the vital goal of helping our clients achieve their missions. This will then powerfully benefit both their lives as well as those of our employees — with the larger vision of using our success to help better the world always before us.


Stewart Sonneland

Stewart founded Strategic Integrators (then Strategic Hardware) in December of 2006 in the belief that a firm focused on providing extraordinary client service and excellence could thrive in the IT marketplace. Ten years later, the success of Strategic has born proof of the importance of focusing on clients first and foremost. Stewart and his wife Patty (36 years of marriage!) have four children (22-34), 1 grandchild (the Amazing Milly!) and one incredibly great golden retriever, Scout. Mr. Sonneland is active in his community serving as the assistant varsity girls soccer coach at Gonzaga Preparatory School, senior leader for Young Life at Gonzaga Prep as well as a member of Young Life’s Regional Executive Committee.

Brian Lahoue
VP of Sales & Technology

Brian joined the team at Strategic in early 2010 after key roles in several ventures across technology, communications, and leadership development. He has been an integral part of the firms' technology strategy, team development, and sales execution. Brian’s quest for learning and gift of communication help to exemplify Strategic’s role as a vendor agnostic, trusted advisor. This father of four stays young by balancing career and volunteering with downtime, his passion for nutrition, and cross-training.

Aaron Newby
Director of Operations

Aaron came to Strategic Integrators after 5 years building an e-commerce startup into a leading online retailer.

Aaron and his wife Jocelyn welcomed their first child, Lucy May, in April 2016. In his free time, Aaron enjoys outdoor activities such as skiing, mountaineering, rock climbing and water sports.
