Who is The KR Group?

Have you ever seen someone working on a project or task, and thought to yourself, “I think there is a different, and maybe even better, way to do this?”

It was that type of conversation between now CEO Matt Keeler and Vice President Phil Rienstra which ultimately led to the creation of The KR Group. Since that first conversation, you and our employees have been our focus.

You have an unlimited potential on how technology can empower your organization. We’re here to help you realize it.

In 2008, Matt and Phil took their combined IT experience and started The KR Group in a spare room in Eastown, Grand Rapids, and began offering customers a different kind of IT experience.
