VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GeekTek IT Services, Inc., a leading managed information technology and security firm based in Los Angeles, California, is pleased to announce its entry into Canada.
GeekTek is an expert at expediting growth through the strategic application of technology, led by CEO Eric Schlissel. Schlissel recognized the previously unmet need for customized IT and security in the cannabis industry in the United States as it was becoming legal for adult use. Since then, Schlissel acquired cannabis industry expertise and weaved it into the company’s technology and scaling capabilities to develop a solution tailored to progressive cannabis companies with multi-state rollout strategies.
“Supporting and enabling Canadian cannabis companies is the logical next step for GeekTek,” said Schlissel. “Cannabis-focused businesses in Canada expect massive growth in the coming years, and we are uniquely equipped to help them reach their full potential,” says Schlissel. “When contemplating large-scale, staged rollouts across multiple provinces, it is critical for businesses to have a trusted technology partner to handle their information technology and data security.”
GeekTek’s proven business model is a welcome solution for new and growing businesses across Canada. The company established five practice areas in Western and Central Canada and launched managed private cloud facilities in Vancouver and Toronto. The company’s launch into Canada is part of a larger expansion strategy Schlissel developed to meet the demand for businesses seeking premium technology expertise.
“We look forward to being a part of this exciting time in Canada,” said Schlissel. “There are high expectations of explosive growth in the cannabis industry in the coming years, and we are uniquely equipped to help businesses reach their full potential.”
GeekTek’s services are currently available in Western and Central Canada. Businesses interested in learning more about the company’s offerings are encouraged to contact Mohirah Hall at 323-205-5060.
