Who We Are
Founded in 2002 by Leo and Gloria Bakerian, a husband-and-wife duo that has grown into a team of Bay Area IT experts, PCC quickly established itself as the go-to technology partner for small and mid-sized businesses. What sets us apart from other managed IT service providers is our unwavering commitment to integrity, responsiveness, and collaboration. Our team of experienced professionals shares this ethos and works together to deliver a phenomenal support experience to our clients.
At PCC, we specialize in cloud solutions and managed technology services that enable businesses to thrive, whether they are working remotely or facing system crashes. Our proactive approach allows us to monitor our clients’ networks, systems, and security, taking action before costly downtime occurs. This helps our clients understand and budget their IT expenses, while our unlimited IT support contracts ensure they don’t have to worry about fluctuating costs.
We take the time to configure our solutions properly, ensuring maximum company efficiency and growth potential. Our goal is to have our clients focus on their business, not their technology.
We believe in being fair, honest, and transparent in all of our business dealings. We put our clients’ best interests first.
Leo Bakerian – Founder and CEO
Leo Bakerian, the visionary Founder and CEO of Professional Computer Concepts, has been at the helm of the company since 2002, driving its growth while cultivating a family-like atmosphere among his employees. With a passion for technology that borders on fanaticism, Leo thrives on tackling complex technical problems. His love for computers and IT started at the age of 14 when he dismantled the family computer to explore its inner workings. Leo pursued his passion at Heald College in San Francisco, earning two degrees with a perfect 4.0 GPA while learning from industry experts.
Leo brings with him a wealth of experience from his corporate IT background, where he acquired numerous certifications while working as a sub-contractor for HP until the dot-com crash, which saw many companies go under. However, Leo’s unconventional thinking and unrelenting pursuit of IT excellence led him to establish Professional Computer Concepts.
When not busy running his business, Leo finds joy in preserving precious memories for families and friends by scanning old photos and converting video tapes into digital versions. He stays ahead of the curve by keeping abreast of the latest technology and how it can benefit his clients and his enterprise.
