Josh Boyd specializes in making technology easy to understand and more productive for businesses. He started Computer Pros in 2009 and as the company has grown, it has taken on larger and larger commercial clients, solving more complex IT problems and recommending solutions for their unique businesses needs.
Like many others, Josh came to the Nashville City Club after meeting George Armistead and liked what he saw. He also worked with Well Coached Consulting and Chris Weinberg (the club’s managing director) to chart a course for the business as Computer Pros grew.
At age 33, Josh has built a successful IT business and made his mark on Middle Tennessee. The Nashville Business Journal earlier this month recognized Josh among this year’s crop of “40 under 40” honorees.
As company president, Josh says his ability to see employees’ potential before they are and build a strong team. “I truly believe that the people you hire are what makes you and your company successful,” he says.
Josh is a native of Southern Indiana who moved to Nashville in 2010 after falling in love with the city. He launched Computer Pros after years in the retail side of IT. Now his company does IT consulting as well as fixes server rack components to a computer mouse and everything in between, including workstations, desktops and laptops.
He and Nicole, his wife, joined the City Club in May 2013. He describes the club restaurant’s service as 5-star and “fantastic” and says every server knew his name after his first few weeks of membership.
Josh and Nicole and were among the 400 or so people who attended the club’s big Gatsby-themed party on New Year’s Eve. It was, Josh says, “the” party to be at downtown.
“This year’s event was fantastic, getting to watch the music note drop with a great view in a warm building and not shoulder-to-shoulder outside in the cold,” he says.
