Our History

The Baer Group is an award-winning Enterprise Technology staffing and consulting firm. We were founded in 1997 by Harvey Baer and Peter Aaron. Harvey Baer was among the original 100 SAP employees in North America as was Jim Boler who joined the company shortly after its inception.

As a privately-held organization based in Atlanta, Georgia, the firm has seen significant growth over the past few years as more and more companies look for experienced Enterprise Technology resources to help streamline core business processes.

Our senior management staff is comprised of hand-picked talent with each person specializing in a strategic, growing area within the industry. Each member of our senior staff has at least ten years of experience in ERP solutions. Using this knowledge, the staff can quickly determine what credentials are needed for a specific project, then find out who has them and who does not.
