This includes CEO and founder – Rob Cheng, COO – Keith Linden, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing – Mike Sexton, VP of Sales and Marketing – Corey Munson, Director of Media Buying/Research – Lyle Schuknecht, and Administrative Executive – Sheila Molden. The article also touts the company’s accomplishment of being one of the fastest growing, privately-owned American companies.
While Rob was employed as a Senior Vice President at Gateway Computers, he stated one of the problems he was unable to solve was the support line costs. Upon leaving Gateway, Rob decided there was a solution. That solution was PC Pitstop.
PC Pitstop was founded for the sole purpose of creating a better way to diagnose common computer problems. It did just that. In the very beginning, PC Pitstop was a testing site, for PC users to utilize to diagnose computer issues. From there the company developed Erase, Exterminate, Optimize, Disk MD and Disk Driver Alert. In 2009 PC Pitstop created its biggest security solution, PC Matic. In 2011, PC Matic was significantly enhanced with the addition of its proprietary whitelist technology, SuperShield.
Since its origination, PC Pitstop has grown exponentially. Over the last three years, PC Pitstop has had a 68% growth rate and revenues of $11.5 million in 2015. The company looks forward to the growth that is yet to come. Will you be joining us?
