Calculated risk drives DRT's Fast 50 success Susan Kidd didn't have a burning desire to launch a company. It wasn't part of a long, well-defined career plan. It was more about seizing an opportunity and taking a risk at the right time. As a result, DRT Strategies Inc. has become a success since its founding in 2003, and it landed at the No. 30 spot on the 2013 Fast 50 with a compound annual growth rate of 70.9 percent over the past five years. DRT got its start when Kidd was approached by a friend and former co- worker who had just launched his own company and needed a subcontractor. Kidd was returning from maternity leave after having her second child and saw it as a good opportunity to focus on what she liked best about consulting: solving a problem and delivering a result. "My background is computer science and math. I really enjoy problem-solving and helping my customers get across the fin- ish line," she said. "I love the delivery aspect because I get a lot of satisfaction from com- ing into an organization and understand- ing their challenges and then applying the principles of problem-solving to help them." In the beginning, the company had one employee --- Kidd --- but that didn't last long. Today more than 100 employees provide consulting services related to IT, program management and financial management services.
