In 2004, founders Shael Risman and Michael Sugrue started PACE Technical. Our goal was to become the first managed IT service provider of our time. We created an environment where clients would get enterprise level support, for a reasonable monthly fee. 

In 2008, Tyler Sanders started Vertex Solutions to provide Law Firms with a trusted, one-stop-shop for all cloud and IT services and solutions, with enterprise level support for a reasonable monthly fee. Mark McRae joined the leadership team in 2014 as Partner and Chief Operating Officer. 

In 2022, the two companies came together to form PACE Technical, one of the preeminent MSPs in the industry. With extremely similar client bases, cultures, values, processes, operating systems—and an unrelenting focus on client experience—we are even more committed to providing highly responsive, proactive, and personalized care for all our clients.

At PACE Technical, we believe that IT can, and should, be done differently.

We believe that clients deserve a company that understands that people are at the heart of every technology. That a user’s experience with technology directly affects profitability, productivity, and creativity--and that productivity increases by providing clients with a safe and reliable IT network with maximum uptime.

Our vision is to deliver a better quality of business life to our clients.
