In 2002 our Founder and CEO, Sean Ferrel, launched a business out of his college dorm. His mission? To create a better way to support companies through the power of technology. What began as a dorm-room dream grew to a fully functioning organization.
Fueled by an exceptional team of talented individuals — our success intersects at passion for people and expertise of technology.
Our reason for coming to work everyday doubles as our secret to success: people. Both internally and externally, we explore technology solutions through a people-first perspective. We believe that the care we take of our team sets the standard for the care that we take of our clients and partners.
20 Days to celebrate 20 years!
So how are we celebrating this massive milestone? Every day for 20 days we are digitizing fun group activities through Microsoft Teams. Kicked off with pictures of the team members from 20 years ago!
On Day 6, we reflected on the core values that make us who we are by looking at the code of conduct that got us where we are today.
Most importantly, we took a moment of gratitude for our team and accomplishments in our quarterly meeting, where many of our amazing staff members were highlighted for their incredible contributions.
In Our 20th Year We…
This year alone, Managed Solution has been awarded 14 times. Our top-tier leadership team has been recognized for their dedication and direction in a string of honors. Starting with our very own CEO, Sean Ferrel, making San Diego Business Journal’s Most Influential People in San Diego, 40 under 40, and being a finalist for SDBJ’s CEO of the Year.
Furthermore, we had multiple C-suite staff placements on SDBJ’s Top 50 Influential Women in Tech’s list by our VP of Sales and Marketing – Tina Rountree, and VP of Strategy and Programs – Alecia Wilson, as well as our amazing COO – Jenell Mott!
As a company, we were also over-the-moon to learn that we were placed on SDBJ’s Best Places to Work list 2022!
Our powerful solutions and services have also been recognized this year in Expertise.com’s Best Managed IT Service Providers in San Diego, Techreviewer’s Top IT services Companies in 2022, Cloudtango’s Top Managed Service Providers US Select 2022 and many more!
At Managed Solution, another huge focus for us is giving back to our San Diego Tech community.
Some ways we were able to do that include donating Microsoft Technology to San Diego’s Just in Time Foster care. Sponsoring and participating in this year’s Cause Conference, to empower ourselves and fellow organizations to make a positive social impact within our community. We proudly helped sponsor Farm to Table’s charity event, benefiting Hospice of the North coast.
With Center for Community Solution’s Tea and Tonics event, our sponsorship helped raise over $510,000 to aid survivors of domestic abuse and contribute to abuse-prevention initiatives.
As Cyber Security Month Champions, we spread Awareness during October’s Cyber Security Month to help businesses and organizations stay in-the-know about the best practices for safety and security!
Speaking of Cyber Security, we had a blast at SIM’s Cyber Security Padre event where we came together with other IT professionals for two of our favorite things: Cyber Security and sports!
We also enjoyed participating in many of Telarus’s golf events throughout the year, where we were able to connect with an onslaught of amazing individuals in the Tech community!
We’ve had a big year here at Managed Solution. From employee shout outs to fun bonding events, to babies and weddings and promotions! We couldn’t be more thrilled with the memories and bonds we’ve made this year.
In February, with our 14 days of love for Employee’s – we shared what we loved about our stellar staff members!
We came together in fun team building trivia events including this totally tubular 80’s themed trivia night.
We also highlighted our Rockstar team members in our ‘Player of the month’ program. Every month, we reward a staff member who has gone above and beyond with 8 additional hours of PTO. On top of this, we’ll be adding an Employee of the Year category in 2023!
