Sean Ferrel

Sean founded Managed Solution because he believed there was a better way to provide IT talent to help businesses with their exponential growth of data, technology needs and business challenges as it relates to IT. Sean is equally passionate about both people and technology, and truly believes it’s about finding the right people to empower the technology that can take your business to where it needs to go. When Sean isn’t discussing business objectives or learning about the latest and greatest technology, he enjoys travelling, spending time with his family and fishing.

Jennell Mott
Chief Operations Officer

As one of Managed Solution’s first employees in 2004, Jennell has had a huge impact in shaping and growing Managed Solution into what it is today. Coming from an Environmental and Science background, Jennell has always enjoyed solving complex problems, and technology has allowed her to apply these skillsets and navigate this ever-changing field. Throughout her career at Managed Solution she has worn many hats and has had her hand in every facet of the business including sales, culture, operations, technical support and now leads our entire One Technical Team. Jennell works closely with all of our vendors, especially Microsoft, and as a result has become an expert in Microsoft products and solutions. Jennell’s dedication to both her colleagues and customers is unmatched and is a testament to Managed Solution’s success. To relax, she enjoys hiking, beaching it up, crafting, solving puzzles and spending time with her Frenchie.

Topher Thomas
Technical Operations Manager

Topher’s love for technology is what got him into the professional world of tech about 8 years ago. One of his favorite projects was migrating an entire infrastructure from an overloaded IT closet to an enterprise data center – in a single weekend! Topher’s favorite part about technology is that it’s always evolving and he loves working with a team to find the right mix of tech and people to solve real-world problems. Outside of work, Topher enjoys sports, camping, traveling and riding motorcycles.
