About Us

Pleasant Hill Software Consulting was started in 1997 by David C. Brown. Highlights of his accomplishments that qualify him as an information technology consultant include:


  • 30 years of experience in Information Technology.
  • Designed and implemented a Cellular Network Modeling program for Sprint PCS; a complex simulation and statistical analysis project that determines which geographic area will receive new cell towers, lowering costs by basing decisions on time-effective computerized data analysis.
  • Presented business and technical issues to a variety of audiences as both a high level engineering and marketing liaison for a Fortune 15 company. Audiences included top corporate, military, and technical leaders, as well as governmental consultants.
  • Managed, architected, designed, implemented and supported a multiple-tier sales lead tracking, inventory and literature fulfillment program; an essential application which runs a company's entire business, allowing them to grow revenue without adding personnel.
  • Designed and implemented dozens of database, software, and other time-critical projects, that are core essentials to companies in a wide variety of industries.
  • Projects for major companies and government organizations such as Sprint, Boeing (McDonnell-Douglas), Southwestern Bell, Joint Chiefs of Staff, GTE, Citigroup, Monsanto, HP (Digital), Pearson, and Clinical Reference Laboratory.


David is a Microsoft Certified Partner (MCP).

Along with David is Jeffrey Brubaker. He has proven experience in web programming, Microsoft Access, and VBA.


Pleasant Hill Software Consulting (PHSC) was started in 1993 as a software development and consulting company. Information Energy Consulting (IEC) was started in 2010 as an Information Technology (IT) consulting company that specializes in information management. Both are a d.b.a. of Pleasant Hill Products (PHP), founded in Pleasant Hill, Illinois. The IEC name will eventually be the registered legal name, replacing the d.b.a. PHSC, and PHP. This is to better fit the location independent nature of the business, and the shift in focus from software to information.
