WHO WE ARE

People-first Technology Experts

“We founded CAL IT Group with a mission: redefine the managed services industry with a customer-first approach. From the beginning, we’ve prioritized long-term relationships over short-term profit. And that arrangement has proven to be mutually beneficial with 100% of our customers retaining us as their IT partner to this day.

Before founding CAL IT Group, we developed our expertise working for one of the nation’s largest MSPs. We oversaw IT teams and projects for the military, government, Fortune 500, and startup business sectors. But after an acquisition, we watched our employers sacrifice quality of service with plug-and-play, one-size-fits-all solutions that simply don’t lead to long-term success. Sadly, the majority of the industry has gone the same way.

So what did we do? We developed a managed services strategy that puts customers, their business, and their unique needs first. Today, we serve as the all-encompassing IT partner for businesses of all industries and sizes across the country.

Every partnership begins with a comprehensive overview, complimentary system upgrade, and custom roadmap to IT success. We proactively adapt and learn in order to provide you with optimal, personalized solutions. We believe in open communication and full transparency – especially when it comes to billing. And we personally meet with our customers’ executives on a regular basis to continually improve our process. No task is too big, too small, or too specialized. We truly function as your IT department. We’re not just another managed service provider. We’re your long-term Managed Service Partner.”

“We aim to partner with our clients for life. People come first. And everybody wins.”

Kevin Nichols

Co-founder & Managing Partner

I got my start in the Navy as a military contractor liaison deploying the first non-tactical FDDI Fiber Optic Network on a US Naval Aircraft Carrier. After six years of service, I worked under the Department of Justice as a Senior Network Engineer, eventually transitioned into private consulting as a Senior Systems Engineer, and later served as the Southern California Managing Director for one of the largest IT service providers in the world.

Along the way I learned that this business is really about people: our clients, their customers, and IT professionals. Most service providers don’t understand that. Joe and I co-founded CAL IT Group to provide our clients with a people-first experience unlike anything on the market: full transparency with long-term investment. And we’re glad to let our 100% client retention rate speak for itself.

“We make IT simple. We find the right-sized solution for each client… and give it to them.”

Joe Kemp, CISSP

Co-founder & Director of Technical Services

Technology is my passion, but I know it’s not everyone’s. My strength is looking at a company’s IT needs… and finding the right-sized solutions that are going to serve them best for the long-haul.

After a childhood spent dissecting electronics, I earned my Bachelor’s in Business Administration, Information Systems & Decision Sciences – followed by a Master’s in Information Technology and my CISSP certification. I have served as a Network Operations Center (NOC) Technician and Director of IT in the academic sector. And before co-founding CAL IT Group, I worked as a Senior Systems Engineer, Senior Consulting Engineer, and Microsoft Field Solution Architect – consulting for Fortune 500 companies and brands.

This industry is full of needless complexity. CAL IT Group is different: we make IT simple.
