Full Disclosure: I am an IT recruiter performing a confidential search for a client company based the Tampa, Florida area. My client is a privately held, profitable and well established (going on their 20th year in business) Value Added Reseller (VAR) of computer hardware, software, networking and virtualization products to corporations and governmental agencies throughout the United States. They are looking to either partner with or hire a full time, highly experienced, hands-on IT solutions expert who ideally has their own book of current business. By partnering with or hiring this IT expert, the company is looking to expand its IT Services and Managed Services Provider (MSP) division throughout the southeastern United States.

This is an amazing opportunity for a self-employed IT expert or small IT services business owner who already has a successful book of business. You love what you do, but because you're too busy solving client problems and constantly putting out fires, you don't have the time, desire, or ability to actively grow your business. My client has a dedicated sales force of 20+ veteran IT sales representatives who have customers throughout the U.S. By leveraging their sales force and administrative staff, you can continue to work on your own and do what you do best - creating and implementing IT solutions for businesses. However, by partnering with my client, you will now have the sales, financial, and administrative backing of a large and established VAR behind you to help grow the business.
Working with great people is everything, and the owner and current management team are an amazing group of genuinely QUALITY people. They know how to reward hard work and financial results. If you want to work with a tight knit group of intelligent, driven, yet down-to-earth professionals while playing a key role in growing a new IT Services/MSP business, then this is definitely worth your time to discuss further details. Telecommuting is certainly possible for the right person.
Although not currently needed to take on this role, the ideal person will be able to eventually attain multiple technical certifications relating to hardware/software manufacturers such as VMware, Microsoft, Dell, HP, Cisco, Brocade, etc. However, just as important, this person needs to have a strong desire to continually learn in order to study for and pass all technical certification tests that will be relevant to the role. This person will be one of the company's primary certification holders. Therefore, the company will pay for the time and expenses necessary to study for and pass any important certifications not currently held.
Compensation: An equity stake is undoubtedly available for a business owner who already has an established book of business and repeat clients. The company owner understands that finding the right person for this role will be difficult. Most successful, self-employed IT experts are uneasy about partnering with or working for another company. Therefore, the compensation structure is completely flexible and open for discussion for the right person who is highly technical, yet personable and projects a positive image when interacting with clients.
This is a six-figure position, with unlimited upside potential.
If this role interests you and you feel that your current skill set and experience is highly relevant, I would love to answer your questions and discuss the detailed specifics over a call. Please reply to this email with any pertinent information that clearly illustrates why you are qualified. Resumes are great, but I don't need a resume if you don't have a current one. More important than a resume, if you're self-employed, please send me a link to your website and a narrative about you and your company. Also please explain why this scenario appeals to you.
Thank you for your interest! I will do my best to reply within a few business days to all candidates who appear to be qualified for this opportunity.
