HBMG began when founder, Manuel Zarate
, was hired to work on the Texas Toll Authority’s website for the SH130 project. Manuel developed what has become the cornerstone software for the organization, the eManagers Collaboration suite. In the beginning, HBMG lived a tiny office with a tilting floor that shook when trains passed by. Kris Dages, the company’s second employee, held on to his monitor, hoping it wouldn’t fall off his desks as he developed software.
What a long way the company has come. With roots in web development, to its 2001 incorporation, to HBMG's current focus on Content and Business Process Management, Strategy, Collaboration, and Professional and Managed Services HBMG has grown rabidly and dynamically! HBMG's first contract was with HDR Engineering in 2002, but established relationships with numerous engineering firms and the state of Texas, and now has a presence in 17 states nationally.
As the company has grown, it has also made an effort to give back to the community. The HBMG Foundation
started over a decade ago to fulfill that commitment. The Foundation participates and facilitates creativity in the arts community in Austin, Texas, where the company and the foundation are headquartered.
With big dreams and great people, HBMG sees no limit on future possibilities. HBMG believes it has the people, processes, and procedures in place to have a wide-reaching national impact.
