Our Story, About Us

Throughout Arterian’s 21 years, we’ve undergone quite the evolution. Established in 1995 by President and Founder Jamison West, Arterian was initially known as Jamison West Consulting Services (JWCS). We began serving customers in Seattle and the surrounding areas with the ever-rising Microsoft technology and software needs. As the demand grew, so did Jamison West Consulting, making four acquisitions from 2010 to 2012.

In 2011, Jamison West Consulting Services was rebranded as Arterian, and has since won several Microsoft West Region Partner of the Year awards. Arterian became a Microsoft Cloud Champion and was one of the first Microsoft partners to become a new Cloud Solution Provider. In 2016, the managed services portion of Jamison’s business was acquired by Aldridge, which positioned Arterian as a cloud solution provider from that point forward.

Our core values include building trust, taking swift and meaningful action, creating best-fit solutions for clients, and keeping ourselves strong so we can keep our clients strong. These values have served us and our clients well for decades. And they will continue to faithfully guide us into the future.
We enjoy technology and we’re passionate about making hard things easy to understand. Our mission is to simplify complex ideas into best-fit IT solutions that help clients achieve their business objectives. And because we love what we do, our clients can trust us to be there for them, now and in the future.
Our vision is to help create IT environments for clients in which technology works seamlessly to help people achieve their goals. While we believe our clients don’t need every tool out there, they do need certain solutions in order to meet their business objectives. We’re determined to ensure our clients always get the tools that are best for them, whenever and wherever they need them.
