Atilus, full-service web development and digital marketing firm, will be celebrating its 14-year anniversary on September 21, 2019. Atilus was founded in 2005 by owner and CEO Harry Casimir while he was still a student at Florida Gulf Coast University.
Originally named “Unique ID Web Design,” the company was renamed “Atilus,” in 2007 after Casimir’s grandfather. What first started as freelance work building websites turned into a full-service digital agency, offering web design, web development, digital marketing, ADA website compliance, and web hosting.
The company was originally started in Casimir’s apartment in Bonita Springs and has since moved into its own commercial space. It now employs 8 full-time staff, most of whom are also Florida Gulf Coast University graduates, each with their own specialty in a different aspect of digital. Atilus’ clients include many local companies in the Southwest Florida area, but also include companies all over the country across many different industries.
“It’s been incredible to think about the growth we’ve seen over the last 14 years. We’re so thankful for those years and look forward to continue to service more clients in the digital space,” says Casimir. “We also need to thank the people that helped make us a success over the last 14 years: our clients, our partners, our friends, and most importantly, our team.”
Atilus frequently engages with the Southwest Florida community through local events and charity sponsorships. As they started at the university and majority of their staff are graduates, the company is very involved in the Florida Gulf Coast University community.
Owner and CEO Harry Casimir serves as a board member on the FGCU Foundation Board of Directors and is also on the Committee on Cybersecurity for Executive Education at University of South Florida. Kristen Bachmeier, the director of operations, serves on the Marketing Advisory Board for the Lutgert College of Business and frequently returns to the FGCU campus to speak to FGCU students.
Atilus has worked on over 1,500 projects and serves clients nationwide. For more information, visit www.atilus.com.
