About Our CEO - Greg Brainerd
Greg Brainerd began his career in the tech field in 1996, troubleshooting enterprise computer and network issues for a respected managed service provider in Tucson, Arizona. Building upon his passion for technology, Greg became highly proficient in the complexities of network infrastructures, security, and data management.
Greg has 26 years of proven technology experience, including networking, programming, IT management, and troubleshooting. His numerous certifications include MCSE +internet, A+, and CCNA just to name a few. His roots are based in IT infrastructure and communication services for small + mid-size businesses.
In 2001, Greg relocated to Houston, Texas, to take a job as a network engineer for a major oil and energy company. In this role, he managed over 300 servers in the company’s data center -- and developed a vast knowledge of computers, networks, and IT security. A year later, Greg and his wife, Tracy, decided to take control of their own future. They launched by Braintek in 2002 to help service small and medium-sized businesses in the Greater Houston area with their networking and IT support needs.
Greg is passionate about helping businesses focus on what they do best without having to worry about their computer systems. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Greg and his team have helped local businesses develop their work-from-home networks. Facing these unprecedented hurdles, it quickly became evident that clients lacked background and experience to implement effective strategies to keep their businesses running while quarantined at home. Greg’s expertise helped reduce the stress of navigating this new way of working and kept them moving forward while much of the world stopped.
Throughout Greg’s decades-long career, he has seen technology grow and change exponentially. Greg knows that time is critical, especially in the IT field and guarantees his clients a swift response each and every time. He diligently studies new technologies and ideas to better train his team and help his clients stay on the cutting edge.
