Meet Your IT Partner Mr. Charles Hammett

Charles Hammett is the Founder, CEO, and President of Hammett Technologies, which serves Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia. He is a Microsoft Charter member who has multiple high-level industry certifications (MCSE, MCSA CCEA). Charles has over 25 years of experience dealing with Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and adhering to their best practice system security model (BPSSM). In addition, he has over 15 years of implementing NIST security controls and the policies behind them. Hammett Technologies specializes in HIPAA compliance, with Charles developing a set of tools and scripts that help automate the assessment process, which saves his clients time and money. 

Charles founded Hammett Technologies (under the name MDPCHelp.com) in 2002 as a side business while he was working for CSC, an HHS and CMS government contractor. He started his business because a friend who owned an awning manufacturing business (who is still a client today) needed some technical expertise. Working full time during the day, Charles discovered his clients preferred him working on their IT at night because it didn’t interrupt their daily business activities. 

From the start, the driving force behind his business was to provide a high level of service to smaller businesses (on par with the level of service he provides larger clients) who he felt were underserved and overcharged by many of his competitors. He witnessed firsthand how some of his competitors were forcing products and capacity on their clients that weren’t needed. He believed they focused too much on how much money they could make instead of providing their clients with the best possible solution.  

Through word of mouth and networking, after six years and still working part time at night, his IT business grew substantially. To make sure his clients were well-served, Charles brought on his son to help him manage his clients as he continued working full time for another government contracting company. In 2012, he focused solely on MDPCHelp.com, which he rebranded as Hammett Technologies, LLC, a fully outsourced IT management company. He also streamlined their product line to increase their level of expertise and reduce their clients’ support footprint. Shortly after the rebranding, Charles won substantial government contracts from the HHS and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). 

Today, Hammett Technologies has two fully operating IT teams; one is dedicated to healthcare, and the other is dedicated to manufacturing in the construction arena. They also have a team that runs a Baltimore data center for HHS. Something that has proved extremely popular with his clients is his “all in one” pricing (where clients pay only for the services they are using), and that each client has one point of contact for their account. Charles’s goal is to make technology and HIPAA compliance the least complex area of his client’s business.
