Local Company Grows Global Business While Supporting Maryland Education

RWD Celebrates 20 Years of Innovation and Philanthropy

Baltimore, MD | Posted on April 1st, 2008

This year, RWD Technologies, a global company that develops and implements organizational performance solutions, celebrates its 20th anniversary. Since founding the company in 1988, Dr. Robert W. Deutsch, chairman, has grown the business to more than 1100 employees across the globe with revenues exceeding $180 million. Simultaneously, Dr. Deutsch's foundation, the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation, has donated more than $4.5 million dollars to Maryland colleges and universities.

Deutsch, the 83 year-old chairman, started RWD to service the automotive industry, forming a close business relationship with Chrysler Corporation to provide performance support services specifically to train personnel to launch new vehicles. Over the last two decades, the company has expanded its business to service multiple industries, helping customers across the globe to bridge the gap between complex technology and human capacity.

"When I started RWD in the 1980's, complex technology usage was limited to engineers, scientists and specially trained employees," said Deutsch. "Today, technology touches everyone in an organization. As the 21st century business environment continues to evolve, and the workforce becomes increasingly mobile, dispersed, and demographically varied; ensuring that workers consistently use technology and use it in an appropriate and effective way will be critical to business growth. We look forward to continuing to help companies meet this challenge and building upon our legacy of innovation."

A History of Innovation

Since its earliest years, RWD has developed state-of-the-art custom information technology systems including the Holiday Inn Worldwide Reservation System, the DaimlerChrysler Mopar Diagnostic System (MDS2), which is currently used by 5,000 auto dealerships throughout North America, and a sophisticated data mining and analysis surveillance system for the National Association of Securities Dealers.

"Even as a local start-up, RWD found opportunities with the Fortune 500," said Laurens MacLure, CEO. "Dr. Deutsch's legacy of technology innovation and the need for strategic, comprehensive performance solutions gave the company a unique market position. As a result, we have seen double digit revenue growth for 15 of our 20 years"

In 2007, RWD was named to the Inc. 5,000, which names the fastest growing companies in the U.S. In Baltimore, RWD was ranked among the top 50 company's in the region with more than 65 percent revenue growth over the last three years.

A Legacy of Giving

In addition to establishing one of the areas leading technology companies at an age when many workers would normally retire, Dr. Deutsch has also significantly contributed to Maryland higher education. The Robert W. Deutsch Foundation has played a critical part in expanding the role of technology on local campuses and enhancing the quality of technology education provided by Maryland colleges and universities.

Contributions made by the Robert W. Deutsch over the last fifteen years include:

-- $1 million to Goucher College to establish and support the RWD Gateway, which provides Internet access on campus and for remote users while supporting innovative uses of technology for teaching and learning; -- $1 million to the University of Maryland Baltimore County in support of capacity building in the Imaging Research Center; -- $1 million to the University of Baltimore to double graduate and undergraduate enrollments, add new faculty and support the work of current faculty in the School of Information Arts and Technologies; -- $600,000 to the University of Baltimore in support of programs and projects in the School of Communications Design; and -- $1 million to the University of Maryland (College Park) to support Biological Nanotechnology Research in the A. James Clark School of Engineering.

RWD officially celebrated its anniversary Friday, January 25 with a global employee party
