NASHVILLE, Tenn. – When Tennessee native Darrell S. Freeman started Zycron in 1991 inside a 150-square foot office with $2,000, he had no idea that 25 years later he’d be running one of the largest IT services companies in the state. As a young entrepreneur, he was merely seeking a way to support his family and have flexibility while he and his wife raised their four children. Thanks to great client partnerships, a dedicated staff and an experienced leadership team, he has been able to fulfill his dream and pave the way for many others.
Today Zycron is a leading provider of IT consulting, IT governance and outsourcing, employing more than 350 professionals across the country. Zycron has five domestic offices in Nashville, Memphis, Chattanooga, Dallas and Denver, and has international operations in South America. Black Enterprise Magazine lists Zycron #74 among service companies on its BE 100s list, an annual report on the nation’s largest black businesses. And in 2015, Zycron was awarded Inavero’s Best of Staffing Client Award, a national award for providing superior service to its clients.
“In a rapidly changing information technology landscape, we have positioned this company as a sustainable industry leader,” said Freeman, who now serves as the company’s executive chairman. “The Zycron team is headed in the right direction and I am very grateful to each team member who has worked hard to carry out a vision that began 25 years ago.”
Zycron revenue for 2015 was $40 million.
