Let’s take about one industry that is probably going to continue growing;
Computer-related services for commercial and residential users.
Recently, I had the opportunity to work with Steve Giordano, a recently downsized executive from the IT industry, and quite a dynamic and focused guy.
Steve was so focused on finding the right fit in a franchise business, that after filling out a questionnaire that I developed, Steve added several more items that he felt were really important for me to know.
He shared his personal and professional career timeline, both present and future, he made sure I understood just how focused he was on opportunities that were tech-related, and he even reminded me that his executive experience involved operations and sales. (A lot of people that I work with usually have one or the other-not both.)
The Cleveland Plain Dealer contacted me when I first started working with Steve. They wanted to talk to downsized execs were were seriously considering career alternatives, like small business ownership. Steve’s focus and determination led me to suggest that he would be a great person to get interviewed. The PD’s Tom Breckenridge agreed. Look
TeamLogic IT®, a nationwide network of computer consultation and managed services businesses designed to address the IT needs of small- to medium-sized businesses, recently opened an office in Westlake, Ohio The business is owned by Steve and Elaine Giordano.
TeamLogic IT of Westlake provides customers with quick-response troubleshooting and repair of desktops, servers and online systems, and they offer a variety of consultation and maintenance services that previously have been available only to larger organizations.
“We are pleased to open a TeamLogic IT office here in the Cleveland area. Due to our nationwide presence and hundreds of techs around the country, we can offer businesses here in the Cleveland area more proactive services than most computer maintenance or repair companies,” said Steve. “All of our services are designed to meet small and medium size business needs and help our clients focus on their business while we handle all of their IT related issues.”
In addition to providing a broad array of computer maintenance and repair services, TeamLogic IT focuses on preventing IT disasters through a proactive approach to managing IT services using state-of-the art technology. The company provides networking services, security services, data services, email services, and hardware and software for small- and medium-sized companies seeking to outsource some or all of their IT needs. TeamLogic IT also offers an IT managed services program called SystemWatch ITTM, a remote diagnostic system that proactively monitors data and networks, helping customers to avoid technology downtime.
“The combination of being able to provide world-class IT services because of our nationwide presence, combined with the benefit of local management teams, has allowed TeamLogic IT to experience significant growth over the past several years,” said Chuck Lennon, president of TeamLogic, Inc. “We are delighted to have Steve and Elaine, local residents of North Ridgeville for more than 8 years, operating the business and servicing the local market.”
Way to go, Steve! You were great to work with…
Best of luck!
