He founded Horizon Technology over 20 years ago in his garage and did PC refurbishing and parts distribution, and guided the company to twenty years of consistent growth and profitability. He also reached $100M in revenue with it, as mentioned earlier.

Kurt is passionate about building an inspiring culture and builds an environment of opportunity and engagement. He’s created an employee Hopes & Dreams program, he requires all new staff to complete ten-week leadership training class and gives all employees paid time off to volunteer in their community.
