Ryan Huettner, CEO of Qoverage

My entrepreneurial background started in grade school with a lawn care business. I started my second company while completing my BS in Computer Science at the University of North Texas, repairing PCs for Bose speaker corporation's displays in Sam's Clubs. I was also employed at UNT during this time, with a team migrating 5,000 desktop PCs from Windows 3.1 to Windows 95, and assisting with campus-wide network upgrades. After graduating from UNT, I went to work for a small IT consulting firm in Dallas, which was acquired a year later to become the Dallas branch of a pre-IPO nationwide startup called All Bases Covered. While DFW companies were first onboarding onto the Internet, our branch grew from 8 technicians to 38 technicians in just a few months, and the company grew from 300 to over 700 people within a couple of years. Our Dallas branch led the nation in process development and profitability, helping All Covered to become “the IBM of small business”.

In 2004 I founded and served as President of a new small-business IT consulting company in Dallas. Through difficult economic times, Solace grew >100% year over year, thanks to our focus on people and processes. In late 2008 I sold my interest in the company, and I founded Qoverage in early 2009.

My dad was an x-ray service engineer, and my brother is a software engineer. I have been immersed in a technical environment since birth. I grew up building Legos, Erector Sets, R/C cars and model rockets. I wrote my own games for the Commodore 64. In high school and college I fell in love with Computer Science, where my creative spirit and my techie brain came together. Writing code and building slick algorithms is a fun challenge, but it always seemed to alienate real-world business people. I could feel a gap between engineering ideology and human interests. Connecting people and helping them embrace technology to solve problems has always been the challenge. In my consulting role, I figured out that our team could make businesses stronger by making people happier and more successful. I have had many “aha moments” with these connections, and that’s why I got into IT consulting, and that’s why I have never left.

I have helped hundreds of executives bridge the gap, relentlessly evolving their IT operational maturity levels to better serve their businesses. It is this passion for business transformation that I bring to Qoverage and to our clients. I will continue to grow Qoverage in an exciting environment, with an empowered and passionate team.
