Todd Stabelfeldt first conceived of C4 Database Management in February 2012 when he realized that few database administration options existed for Laboratory Information Systems – environments whose intricacies he understood well. Shortly thereafter he incorporated C4 Consulting Inc. and began doing business under the name of C4 Database Management.

Since its inception, C4 has striven to serve customers with a commitment to accuracy and efficiency in all aspects of customer interaction and service delivery. We also back up our expertise with continuous training and certification.
