When you’ve been in business for almost 35 years, you learn a thing or two about resilience and the ability to thrive in challenging environments. No one knows this better than Todd Perlman, president of Business Technology Partners, a full-service technology solutions provider.

Building Trusted Relationships:

Todd strives to establish trusted relationships with clients by always acting in their best interests. As the president of BT Partners, he’s focused on going above and beyond expectations to help clients achieve their goals. Todd’s journey at BT Partners began over 20 years ago, after working in public accounting and serving as controller and operations manager for various companies in diverse industries. His prior experiences led him to realize the need for a better approach to enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementations and technology consulting, forming the foundations of BT Partners.

Commitment to Community and Family:

A lifelong Chicago resident, Todd earned his Bachelor of Science in Accountancy from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb. Deeply rooted and committed to his community, Todd emphasizes the importance of family, a culture that resonates throughout BT Partners. He understands the personal commitment and sacrifice that business owners endure and aims to help small and mid-size companies succeed.

Industry Involvement:

Todd’s commitment extends beyond BT Partners. He has served as a committee chair in the Illinois CPA Society, is a member of AICPA and APICS, and is actively involved in the Information Technology Alliance, currently serving as a board member.

Concierge-Style Approach:

BT Partners stands out for its concierge-style approach, recognizing that selecting the right technology partner is more crucial than choosing the technology itself. Perlman highlights that understanding clients on a deeper level has been a key factor in the company’s growth and stability. It takes more than technical competence; it requires constant support throughout the customer journey and the ability to read between the lines.

The company’s unique approach involves deploying top technical talent at a moment’s notice, trained to know the details of each client extensively. With a team that has diverse experience across all facets of the enterprise, including decision-making in technology selection, BT Partners takes on the responsibility of true ownership, setting them apart from the competition.

BT Partners has invested heavily in learning and positioning itself to guide clients in preserving their competitive edge, especially as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning become increasingly prominent in improving efficiency and profitability.

Leadership Philosophy:

Beyond achieving financial success, Todd’s greatest ambition is to advance the careers of young professionals in the field by providing them with fresh insights and consistently putting the needs of his clients first. In a rapidly evolving technological landscape, Perlman emphasizes the importance of paying attention to technological advancements, stating, “Technology moves fast. If you don’t pay attention, you could miss it.”

Todd Perlman’s leadership at BT Partners reflects a commitment to building lasting relationships, a unique approach to technology solutions, and a dedication to community and family values. His influence extends beyond business success, aiming to shape the careers of young professionals while staying at the forefront of technological advancements.
