Biography

I am the owner of three IT related businesses: Harbor Computer Services, Third Tier and Sell My MSP and have been working in small and medium business IT field for more than 20 years. I'm a technical person with advanced skills in networking design, management and implementation. I value technology for what it does for people and the success it brings to business. 

Harbor Computer Services began in 2000 and won the Microsoft Partner of the Year award in 2010. I'm very proud of this award as the pinnacle of our efforts to do great work for businesses in Michigan. HCS on the surface is a typical MSP but our focus on aligning technology with business goals and maintaining security and compliance make us a stand out.

Third Tier spun out of Harbor Computer Services and began in 2008 to provide technical assistance to IT firms by providing a helpdesk for IT professionals. Since most IT firms are small companies it isn't possible for them to have all of the expertise they need on staff. We help them fill those gaps. Since this modest beginning we have added a number of different services to assist these firms including Tech Your Books, Finance, Be The Cloud, MicroStaff and more. We also have a strong community presence offering free security news, patching analysis, webinars, chats and training events. We have assisted about 1500 IT firms around the world and also have a significant social media reach into the IT community. Third Tier won its first award in 2015 SMB All-Star.

Sell My MSP spun out of Third Tier and began in 2015. It provides a space for buyer and seller of IT firms to meet one another. We also provide information on preparing a business for sale and performing due diligence before purchasing one.
