Growth, innovation and change are what keeps Joe Garzi motivated and ahead of his competition. Unlike most of us, Joe loves learning new systems and about new technology whether reading the Sharp Catalog, or browsing the aisles of Best Buy. One of his favorite past times is exploring new products. He labels himself a true techno geek.
Far from beginning in technology, Joe majored in Business, Finance and Accounting and found himself working in those departments at Cartus Relocation. His affinity to efficiency, communication and systems found him creating software program connecting multiple departments and became known as the in-house systems efficiency specialist, eventually becoming the head of the IT Department.. When downsizing and a move to Maryland seemed imminent, Joe was hired away and landed eventually at Southridge Capital who became his partner in the offshoot venture of the IT Company Southridge Technology. The sole owner since 2010, Joe has grown the company to include 15 technicians and 5 administrative people and has been honored multiple times by INC5000 which tracks the fastest growing companies in the US. He plans to open a third location in White Plains this coming year.
Labeling himself a computer detective, he does free technology assessments for companies in order to find potential security breaches along with efficiency improvements of current systems. He prides himself as not just selling and installing technology but also counseling and advising his clients with honesty and integrity so that they have the right tools. One of his many niche markets are health care providers as he is HIPAA certified. The combination of technology and a business background enables Joe to always be concerned with the bottom line investment for the client. He is able to listen to his client’s needs and to wrap the technology around their business model..
Joe and his wife, Brenda, enjoy leisurely scenic bike rides with their grown children. They are anticipating a wedding next month and also spend time following the professional soccer career of their son who plays for the Rochester Rhinos.
