Business of the Month 2020
An initiative from the Staten Island SBDC to showcase the success and achievements in result of the hard work and efforts formed from business relationships with our expert advisors
January 2020: Team Logic IT
Michael Montalbano is no stranger to hard work. While working on Wall Street, Michael worked long hours and lived in Manhattan with his wife, Justine. After their son was born in 2012, Michael decided he wanted to move to Staten Island and set up his own business to support his family and follow his dream.
Since developing himself as an entrepreneur was new territory for Michael, yet an endeavor he believed he was capable of handling, he chose to meet with the SBDC at the College of Staten Island (CSI) for the business counseling he knew he needed.
When Mike came to the SBDC at CSI in 2018 to discuss his acquisition of a TeamLogic IT Franchise, he met with Senior Certified Business Advisor Ed Piszko to discuss the Team Logic concept and how to best market his new business. Hiring skilled technicians, having a good location, and creating a social media marketing plan were the essential first steps discussed. Team Logic IT has grown into a nationwide network that businesses rely on for managed IT Services.
Michael and Justine’s success is driven through one core mission – to leverage technology to a business’ advantage. Thousands of businesses across North America are taking advantage of their ability to deliver available, secure and flexible IT systems, filling the void in the market for a trusted technology advisor. Subsequently, Michael met with Advisor Ed Piszko and Director Dean Balsamini to discuss how cybercrime is invading college campuses. Michael is driven to provide local, knowledgeable IT support to small businesses on Staten Island. While Michael is providing a valued service to small business owners on Staten Island, he also provides support to the community through various local organizations and nonprofits.
TeamLogic IT believes that the best technicians don’t wait for the next round of training, they begin researching and reading on their own initiative to deepen their skill set, and to anticipate your questions when the time comes.
