Our History

Essential IT was founded in 2003, by brothers Brian and David Surowiec, to address a gap in the market for IT and web services.

Business owners we spoke with were frustrated. They knew technology was essential to their continued growth, but to make it work they were faced with two choices, neither ideal: do it themselves, or try to get results from costly agencies.

Companies that tried to build sites or handle email, networking and other IT needs on their own got stuck. They didn’t have the people, time or experience to take the ball into the end zone.

Companies that approached agencies or IT services firms felt underserved. Those firms seemed more interested in how websites looked rather than if the sites were effective as a marketing and sales channel. Owners said they often felt talked down to, not listened to.

For these reasons, Essential IT was born. Our role is to combine the disciplines of marketing and technology to address your needs effectively, efficiently and elegantly.
