From a one-man shop, to our expansion internationally, our values remain: trust, integrity, intelligence, and reliability. An early entrepreneur The ImagIT story began in the late nineties when founder Brian Gardner taught himself how to build computers. Brian reverse engineered the family computer a few times to understand it and soon had built his own machine. At the time, Brian was working as a caddy at a golf course in Oakbrook, IL. When the golfers found out that he was building computers that were not only customized but also of great quality, they began asking him to do builds for them. Soon he was making a decent profit, building computers that rivaled the available manufacturers of the time and selling them to businesses in the area. From there, he was asked to build several business computers for a doctor’s office. The office also asked him to set up a print server (there were no network printers at that time), so Brian taught himself how to do so and set that up as well. "Everything in life is a math equation, people are the common denominators." ― Brian Gardner, CEO Brian soon realized that [...]
