Baltimore - COLUMBIA, Md. – CMIT Solutions, the nation’s leading provider of information technology (IT) professional services and products to small businesses, named Tom Burtzlaff, owner of CMIT Solutions of Columbia, the winner of the prestigious 2011 All-Star Award at the company’s convention in early May.
Presented to the CMIT Solutions franchisee who best demonstrates the company’s core beliefs, the All-Star Award honors Burtzlaff for his commitment to growing his business.
“Tom truly hit the ground running when he opened his business in July 2010 and has shown no signs of slowing down,” said Jeff Connally, CEO and president of CMIT Solutions. “Since leaving training, he has expanded his business with clients who trust and rely on his business acumen to bring high-quality technology support to their small businesses. We look forward to watching his ongoing success.”
Before his transition into entrepreneurship, Burtzlaff was a manufacturing executive in the cosmetics industry for the last 30 years working for Avon, Maybelline, L’Oreal, and most recently as General Manager for a cosmetic sampling company in Baltimore. In 2009, the company closed his facility and Burtzlaff decided to leave corporate America to pursue his entrepreneurial passion.
“By not having to reinvent the wheel, I have been able to assist the small business community of Columbia with their technology support, while having the best tools right at my fingertips,” said Burtzlaff. “The fantastic part of having the support of the CMIT Solutions family is that we can call on the corporate office and any other owner around the country to get the support we need to advance our business.”
Today, Burtzlaff’s CMIT Solutions business serves more than 15 clients throughout Columbia.
