ICG is all about the team, and we have gathered some of the best, full-stack development professionals from the Midwest and around the world to deliver on our quality and support commitments. The following biographies are only a few members of the extended ICG solutions team.
Mitchel Sellers, Microsoft C# MVP, DNN MVP
CEO/Director of Development
Mitchel Sellers is not only the CEO of ICG, but he is also one of its core contributors and a consummate technical professional. His list of accomplishments is impressive: Microsoft C# MVP six years running, Microsoft Certified Professional, DNN MVP, published author and co-author of hundreds of articles and no less than three industry standard texts on programming in .NET and on the Microsoft stack, technology professor at Des Moines Metropolitan Community College, and much more.
Mitch has a deep understanding of software development and a focus on proper architecture standards, performance, stability, and overall cost effectiveness. But perhaps what customers remember the most is his dedication to great service and support and the ability to communicate effectively with project stakeholders from the datacenter to the executive board room and back again.

Andy takes pride in finding the best approach to validate the functionality of a delivered solution to ensure that what leaves our team is the best it can possibly be.

Senior DBA/Application Developer
Joshua starting his career as a database administrator working with Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle Systems, and IBM’s AS400. After mastering the administration side, he grew into database system migration and reporting services (SSIS and SSRS). Adding .NET coding skills was the natural next step, becoming a valued team player at the event horizon between databases and the applications that need them.
His passion for learning and his keen eye on performance makes him a very valuable asset to the ICG team. Often working closely with our Director of Development on high-scale performance optimizations for clients. Joshua takes extreme pride in his work and loves the challenge of taking the 'impossible' and making it possible. Joshua is fond of saying, "When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all."
User Experience and Efficiency Engineer
Chuck’s skill set is rare in the industry—he cares about code and about the user. He writes clean code, great test procedures, and efficient interfaces. But he also designs great user interfaces, reduces complexity, and has a commitment to creating the documentation they need now and in the future.
Senior Web Developer
Armand's skills as a web developer are second to none. His expertise is in delivering high-quality solutions for ICG customers that utilize the latest and greatest UI patterns and designs while retaining a high level of compatibility for multiple devices. In short, he has a unique feel for that space where the art of the internet meets the binary 1’s and 0’s of IP technology … transforming great design into living, breathing websites and portals.
But his skills do not stop there. Armand is a scripting wizard and often implements solutions and designs that others say are "impossible." And as a prominent member of the internet community, he has built a reputation as a go-to solution provider, relied on by industry leaders around the world to help make their platform better.
