The most impactful leadership lesson Michael Steinmann has learned revolves around the vital role of fostering open communication and cultivating a collaborative team culture. “Recognizing that every team member’s perspective is a valuable asset, I’ve learned that creating an environment where everyone feels heard and appreciated enhances creativity and problem solving,” he said.

This lesson has allowed Steinmann to continue fostering growth with a committed team as the CEO of HITS Corporation. HITS Corporation is the premier document and data management company. With more than 25 years of experience, the company has become a leader in information technology services and management.

Under Steinmann’s leadership, over the past year, HITS achieved a significant milestone through the strategic acquisition of imageX in Virginia and 5i Solutions in Florida and Indiana. “These moves represent a key accomplishment in our ongoing commitment to expanding our product offerings and serving an even larger customer base, particularly in the federal government sector,” said Steinmann. “This strategic decision aligns seamlessly with our larger plans to lead technological innovation and enhance work environments across the country.”

Leveraging cutting-edge technology, the company has optimized information processes, enhancing the work environments for its clientele. HITS specialized services include document management, storage removal, remote document capture, document scaning and conversion and data migration.

Giving back to the community is a top priority for Steinmann. The company has launched a tree-planting program in Forest Park to honor its local customers who have contributed to environmental sustainability by scanning large amounts of paper with HITS. “This initiative not only symbolizes our commitment to technological innovation but also highlights our dedication to environmental stewardship,” said Steinmann.

Additionally, Steinmann and his team engage in mentorship programs to inspire and equip the next generation with the skills and insights needed to thrive in a dynamic business landscape. “Tracking the professional growth and achievements of mentees and observing their positive contributions to the industry serves as a tangible metric of our commitment to fostering the next generation of titans,” he said.

As a second-time Titan 100, Steinman said being recognized has served as a testament to the dedication and impact of his work. “This acknowledgement is not only a personal achievement but a validation of the collective efforts of my team and the organization,” he said. “It reinforces a sense of accomplishment and motivates me to continue striving for excellence.”

Once again, Steinman has earned the title of Titan 100.
