Logisolve in Photos (People Make the Party)

By Ben Youtz | Data Transformation Capability Leader By Charlie Belisle – Co-Founder and Data Transformation Capability Leader

Summer is well under way and the Sun, shorts, and flip flops are out. Thank you for those who joined us this week for our annual Logisolve SummerFest event at Surly Brewing. Great food, drinks, and most importantly people. We have another event coming up in just a few months and hope that as many of you can join us as possible. Logisolve’s 25th Anniversary Celebration will be held on Thursday September 28th at The Royal Club in Lake Elmo. You should have already received your invitation in your email to RSVP. If for any reason you have not, please reach out to Amanda Zais ( or anyone of your contacts at Logisolve and we will make sure to resend.

As I reflect on Logisolve’s history, the thing I have enjoyed the most is the opportunity to meet and work with so many talented and positive people. At Logisolve, our culture is very team oriented, focusing on individual’s strengths and providing opportunities to share and cultivate ideas. With this in mind I thought I would share a small photo montage of pictures representing this spirit. As we approach our 25th Anniversary Celebration we will be creating a rolling photo video with the pictures below as well as many more that we will display at the event. If you have any additional photos from previous Logisolve events through the years that you would like to share please send to Amanda Zais ( and we will work to incorporate them into the video. Enjoy the rest of summer!!! We hope to see you at the Logisolve 25th Anniversary Celebration!!!
