Liang Chen founded Stellar Services more than 20 years ago and, since then, has been instrumental in transforming the business into a thriving Information Technology services firm that serves federal, state and local government clients, as well as commercial and non-profit clients, located throughout the US.
Liang has been at the helm of Stellar Services since the company's founding in 1993. He understands his clients' IT infrastructure challenges and, in response, formed and leads a team that has developed a broad range of superior IT Infrastructure Support, Program Management, Enterprise Content Management, and Systems Integration services and solutions.
A graduate of prestigious Shanghai Jiaotong University, Liang also holds a Masters in Operations Research from Western Michigan University. Before starting Stellar, he worked at Louis Berger International, Inc., and the Ebasco Division of Raytheon Engineering and Constructors, Inc. He became experienced at these companies in implementing project control and management systems, and earned a reputation as an employee with an acute business sense and a timely delivery of projects within budget.
As the President of Stellar Services, Liang manages all activities from the headquarters offices in New York City. As a seasoned Systems Architect, Liang has gained extensive experience with system master planning, technical design, and project management for both the public and private sectors.
Liang is proud of Stellar’s credentials, including its rapid expansion to 100+ employees today and for being nominated 2009’s IEEE Corporate Innovation Award recipient. Another major point of pride for the company is the development of OneView™, its dashboard solution that provides crucial project and business intelligence and reflects on-the-job performance measurements for organizations with hundreds of thousands of workers.
Liang believes his key to success involves cultivating and encouraging talent. “You have to cultivate good employees,” he says. “Stellar couldn’t have gotten anywhere without its talented employees.”
In his spare time, Liang enjoys having fun with his two young sons and trying his hand at a good card game.
