What Was The Mission?

What Is Our History?

Acclaim Technology, Inc. was founded in June of 1994 in a 4000 square foot building in Sunnyvale, CA. With very little capital but a very large vision, Norm Shockley, President and CEO, and Gavin Thames, Executive Vice President, established a partnership. They set about building a sales and engineering team to meet the needs of the Information Technology marketplace by becoming a top-flight systems integrator.

The partners, recognizing the need for outstanding engineering services, recruited John McCarthy as Acclaim Technology's Chief Technology Officer. Mr. McCarthy came to Acclaim Technology with over 20 years of experience in the Silicon Valley as both an engineer and an engineering manager.

With the core team in place, Acclaim Technology was poised for rapid growth. Within one month of opening our doors for business, we closed over a million dollars in sales. Within two years, we have blossomed from a few core individuals to over 50 employees, forty million in sales, and a beautiful, 24,000 square foot facility in the heart of San Jose at the Greylands Business Park.
