BREAKING NEWS!

Kite Technology Earns the CompTIA Security Trustmark+™

OUR HISTORY

More than 28 years ago our president, Jeff Kite, combined his passion of helping people with his technical and networking skills to start his career. Taking on all manner of business and personal clients, Jeff made a name for himself by providing technology expertise with an exceptionally rare personal and caring approach. Jeff’s business gained traction and a new focus as he developed a strong affinity for the technology requirements of insurance agencies. Jeff’s business grew rapidly to become the regional expert on the IT needs of independent insurance agencies.

As technology increasingly became a critical component to the success of agencies, a more proactive approach was necessary. To meet this emerging need, Jeff chose to partner with Greg DiDio, and Kite Technology Group was born. After spending 17 years working for a Fortune 500 company, Greg left the comforts of “big business” to bring an “enterprise mentality” to KiteTech. He led a transformation of the former “break fix” company into a national full service IT company positioned to provide high-quality proactive services to its clients.

Today, Kite Technology is the trusted IT advisor to more than one hundred organizations across the United States. While we specialize in serving independent insurance agencies, we also provide IT services to nonprofits, medical offices, legal firms, manufacturers, construction companies, and other professional organizations.

Tom Brooks
VP- Business Development

Having become frustrated with my experience in the world of business sales, I am finally working with a company that values the “Win/Win” relationship that I will only work for. I thrive in the “Trusted Adviser” role and Kite Technology gives me the opportunity and freedom to do so. On a personal note, my wonderful wife Liz and I are a third of the way raising our six sons ages 30, 28, 26, 24, 18 and 16. At times, given their ages, I feel that we should have an honorary Psychology Degree. Advice is free!
