Run Business Solutions was originally founded in 1999 by Drew Terrell, Verone Leimer and Toby Giddens on the premise that all companies need the full function of an Information Technology department. This business was founded with expertise in accounting and finance from partner Verone Leimer who is also a CPA, expertise in technology and development from Toby Giddens partner and Director of IT Managed Services and Drew Terrell, partner and CEO. 

Now 18 years later, not only is Runbiz growing exponentially, their clients are reaching national and international markets through their expertise and services including infrastructure, technical support and technology development services.

While an organization may not need EVERY service we offer, EVERY organization needs some services that we offer, says Toby Giddens, Shareholder, IT Services. “RunbizTM, as we have been nicknamed by our clients, has a very strong company culture. It is the cornerstone of our success and we are excited to be growing our team. We’ve been very intentional about our growth strategies and that’s led to not only the exponential growth that we’re being recognized for today, but sustainable growth over the last 18 years.

In 2000, we started with a team of 3 focused on supporting technology departments and more specifically accounting infrastructure. By 2015 we had the opportunity to acquire a long-standing competitor in this market that grew our team and our IT Managed Services client base even more. We’ve been presented a number of acquisition opportunities, but our service base and our client mix is truly unique, so we have chosen to grow more organically. As of now we have 26 team members and clients in distribution industries, industrial manufacturing, oil & gas, healthcare, professional services, hospitality, education and technology and those clients have a national and international footprint. As a Microsoft certified partner and the primary resource supporting Microsoft Dynamics GP Accounting software, we are able to serve very large complex organizations and the small dynamic entrepreneur that is literally working everywhere, says Verone Leimer, Shareholder, Dynamics GP Services.
