Ben and a partner started their first computer business in 2001, it thrived – even placing high on the first-ever MSP Mentor list in 2007. But in 2008, Ben wanted to branch out on his own. Eight of the 10 other employees followed Ben, and the skeleton crew set up shop, rebuilt all the infrastructure from scratch over Memorial Day weekend, and Liberty Technology was up and running and taking calls in fewer than three business days. Three of those intrepid employees are still on board with the company.
In 2012, Liberty was named the Lon Touchstone Small Business of the Year by the Griffin Chamber of Commerce. In that same year, Ben was named one of the top 150 most influential SMB consultants in the world and was also one of five finalists for the Georgia SBDC Businessperson of the Year. In 2013, Liberty was named to the MSP Mentor Top 501, CRN Next-Gen 250, CRN Fast Growth 150, Bulldog Alumni 100, and Inc. 5000. Notably, 2017 marked Liberty’s fifth consecutive year being named to Inc.’s list of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies. Additionally, in 2015, Liberty was recognized with a Resolution in the Georgia State Senate for Job Creation.
