ESCONDIDO ---- Ken Hamilton used to fly around the country as the technological Mr. Fix-it for big corporate clients. But since he bought his own franchise, he gets to stay within driving distance of home.
Hamilton's specialty is computer technology. He helps companies buy the right computers, install security and meet the other tasks needed to keep corporate systems running.
Now president of CMIT Solutions of Inland North County, Hamilton says staying local lets him participate in the community while still doing his job. That's something he said was hard while working for 18 years as part of a Hewlett Packard business-to-business sales team.
