Community Partnership – The Richmond Strikers

Richmond Strikers and Morton Community PartnershipDid you catch the recent Richmond Strikers’ e-bulletin? You may have noticed that Morton was the featured partner! Here at Morton, we take pride in our commitment to community involvement, and we were pleased to share our story with the Richmond Strikers.


Here’s a little information about the organization:

The Richmond Strikers were founded in 1975 and have been primarily known as an established and well respected soccer club nation wide. Since 2015, Strikers have added girls and boys lacrosse, field hockey, rugby and cricket. A new mission statement was created to include all sports and shows the transition into the new era of the Richmond Strikers:

“The Strikers aim to provide unsurpassed individual development, family enrichment and community connection through team sports.”


If you missed the e-bulletin, here are some of the highlights from the article about what makes Morton special.

What’s the Morton Story?

Growing up, our company’s president, Mark Morton, would spend countless hours at his grandfather’s local hardware store. He saw how his grandfather retained business by adding a personal touch. His grandfather took the time to listen to each customer’s unique needs; he didn’t try to put them into a predefined, one-size-fits-all box. Everything we know, we learned at the hardware store.

With that foundation of relationship-building in mind, Mark set out to create a company that treated people like people, not like numbers on a bottom line, and founded on the principle of putting people first. Because no matter what business you’re in, treating people right is always the right thing to do.

So, what does Morton do?

In 2006, Mark founded an IT staffing firm that embraced a people-first culture. A firm where both clients and job seekers could find the exact right fit for their needs; all while adhering to the principles of commitment, honesty, professionalism, and respect. That’s exactly what Morton has been delivering to our business partners for over a decade.

What can Morton do for me?

Whether you’re looking for the right IT person to fit a current job opening, or you’re an IT professional looking for the right position, Morton can help!
