Our history.


LPA Software Solutions LLC (LPA) was organized in November 2014 by a group of members led by technology entrepreneur Jim Carrick. In January 2015 it acquired the 33 employees, assets and business operations of LPA Systems, Inc. based in Rochester, New York.


The new ownership and leadership team includes:
  • Jim Carrick, Chief Executive Officer
  • Scott Hopkins, President
  • Kevin M. Bryans, Executive Vice President/CFO
  • Betty Wall, Vice President, Strategy/Marketing
  • Don Ponge, Vice President, Business Development

During 2015 LPA expanded to 52 employees in multiple east coast states, and co-located in the IBM Buffalo (New York) Innovation Center (IBIC) to support IBM’s leading analytics clients, as an IBM Premier Business Partner.

Today, LPA is nationally known for providing business analytics, big data, information management, data warehousing, and financial performance management solutions. With over 200 clients, LPA offers consulting, systems integration and software expertise to clients ranging from multi-billion dollar Fortune 500 companies to mid-market firms with fewer than 50 employees.

Founded in October 2001, under the leadership of Donald Soule and Katrina Adams, LPA Systems, Inc. became an IBM Premier Business Partner and consulting practice specializing in IBM Cognos Analytic Software. In August, 2002, it acquired the Rochester office assets of Idea Integration Corporation, expanding the breadth of consulting and technical services that the company offered.
