Geeks on Call - Military Computer Pro Offers High-Tech Help To Maryland's Civilians

For most of his adult life, Patrick Dunn's world has revolved around the U.S. Armed Forces. After several years of serving his country in active duty, followed by numerous years as a civilian employee of the military, Dunn has decided to bring his high-tech savvy to Maryland's civilian sector. As the owner of a new Franchise with Geeks On Call® - the nation's premier provider of on-site computer support - Dunn now offers the residents and small businesses of Calvert County the same computer expertise and services that made him a trustworthy name amongst members of the U.S. Department of Defense.

Patrick Dunn began his military career in the U.S. Air Force, with whom he spent six years in active duty and two years in the reserves. After this chapter of his life came to a close, he embarked upon a civilian career in the information-technology industry. His first position was as a telephone-based computer support specialist, after which he undertook several civilian positions with the Armed Forces, most notably performing software testing for the U.S. Navy; providing computer support to the U.S. Department of Defense; and supporting the U.S. Coast Guard as a systems engineer. Later he again went to work for the Navy, this time serving as a "Lead Technical Engineer," after which he became employed as a "Knowledge Manager" for an IT company that had a contract with the Department of Defense. While holding these different positions, Dunn garnered valuable experience with myriad cutting-edge technologies, and developed sharp business skills while serving in project management capacities. Certainly these areas of expertise are the reason that Dunn has been so highly touted by the President of Geeks On Call®, Walter Ewell. "I admire the strong leadership skills that Patrick Dunn has demonstrated in both the military and the IT industry," said Ewell. "He's definitely the right man to lead the expansion of Geeks On Call® in Calvert County."

Geeks On Call® is the high-tech equivalent of a doctor who makes house calls. Too often home-owners and small businesses lose substantial time and money while waiting for their computer problems to be remedied by a large, impersonal retailer that often keeps the computer for a week or more,and charges an arm and a leg! Refusing to tolerate this type of slow, unsatisfactory service, Geeks On Call® goes against the grain and brings help directly to the customer's doorstep. Launched in 1999, Geeks On Call® began its operations in Norfolk and Virginia Beach, VA - where it experienced immediate success. Overwhelmed by the public's hunger for dependable computer support, Geeks On Call® realized the only way to satisfy its ballooning customer base would be to franchise the company. In April 2001 the first Geeks' offspring was born, and since then approximately 120 Franchises have been planted throughout the United States.

Not only have the expedient, reliable services provided by Geeks On Call® found success with residential clients, but also with small businesses that simply cannot afford the enormous expense of hiring an IT staff. Instead of paying exorbitant salaries to keep a full-fledged IT staff on hand, small businesses simply can turn to Geeks On Call® on those occasions in which computer services are required. Now everyone can have access to superior computer repairs, upgrades, troubleshooting, training, networking and custom-built PCs - without emptying their wallets.

Currently, Geeks On Call® offers service in the following areas: Fredericksburg, Hampton Roads, and Northern VA; Washington, D.C.; Cary, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Durham, Huntersville, the Outer Banks, and Raleigh, NC; Annapolis, Baltimore, Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Columbia, Frederick, Gaithersburg, Germantown, Laurel, and Rockville, MD; Cedar Hill, The Colony, Dallas, Denton, DeSoto, Frisco, Fort Worth, and Plano, TX; Arvada, Boulder, Colorado Springs, and Denver, CO; Lee's Summit and Kansas City, MO; Jacksonville, Lakeland, Melbourne, Orlando, and Tampa, FL.
