Kent Copp, the grandson of a computer programmer from Ohio in the 70’s and 80’s, grew up familiar with the world of technology. Kent was always close with his grandfather, whose work included building power supplies for computer era pioneers like Hewlett-Packard. Because of this close relationship, Kent found more than just a hobby in computers, and ended up pursuing a career path in information technology.
Working part-time while studying computer science in college, Kent quickly moved up the ranks within several local IT support companies. Over the next few years he built his resume with a broad array of industry experience and certifications, while beginning to realize there was tremendous growth potential for an IT venture that would be able to provide local area businesses the level of services they really needed to successfully embrace and benefit from technology. In 2001, Kent took his vision to his close friend Scott Sallah, a young, successful entrepreneur, and together they partnered to form IT Decisions in Johnson City, TN.
Having Scott’s expertise in the business world coupled with Kent’s knowledge in IT, the new company grew steadily while other small IT shops faded away or were acquired by larger competitors. Fast forward to today, and IT Decisions is fortunate to have continued to prosper and become a premier provider of IT products and services. What started out as a two man operation now boasts 29 professionals who work together to offer information technology solutions to several hundred of our region’s most respected businesses.
In 2013, IT Decisions established a new branch office in Harrisonburg, VA in order to better serve our expanding customer base. With offices in the Tri-Cities of northeast TN and the Shenandoah Valley region of VA, IT Decisions is now positioned to bring our unique brand of IT services without sales to an even larger coverage area than before, and we believe that’s only the beginning!
