2015 Influential Women of Kansas City Business: Angela Hurt

Founder and CEO, Veracity Consulting

Angela Hurt makes sure it isn’t business as usual at Veracity Consulting, a Lenexa-based firm that provides end-to-end technology solutions. She started and self-funded the company in 2006 with a mission to change the complex tech world into a more efficient and profitable solution for businesses while prioritizing relationships, teamwork and communication.

Under Hurt’s leadership Veracity has evolved into a national firm with expanded capabilities and become one of the metro’s most reputable IT companies, with her leading a staff of more than 60 employees.

Veracity is dedicated to the well being of its employees and clients, but making sure her company gives back to Kansas City is also important to Hurt, who donates more than 10 percent of the profits to community charities and foundations and created a program that allows employees to take paid time off to volunteer. She leads by example, serving as a board member for the Women’s Employment Network and the board co-chair for American Indian Enterprise Business Council in addition to being an active member of Central Exchange.
