Chris Benson


Chris' journey into technology began at the tender age of 10, a journey marked by an unquenchable curiosity and a deep-seated passion for innovation. His formative years were defined by a distinguished tenure in the US Army, where he served with distinction during Desert Storm from 1990-1991, playing a pivotal role in logistical operations. Post-military, Chris furthered his education at Portland State University, a step that propelled him into the corporate world at Symantec Corporation. There, he excelled as a Senior Software Engineer for six years, honing his skills and expertise.

Embracing his entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to his home state of Oregon, Chris embarked on a bold venture, founding GeeksAKnockin’. This enterprise later evolved into AlwaysOnIT in 2007, reflecting Chris's strategic focus on exclusively supporting small to mid-sized businesses. This visionary shift not only underscored his dedication to the IT and the managed service provider (MSP) industry but also marked the beginning of a highly successful chapter. Under his leadership, AlwaysOnIT has emerged as a beacon of innovation and exemplary service, solidifying Chris' status as a trailblazer dedicated to empowering business growth through cutting-edge technology solutions.
