John Harbarenko is a co-founder and president of Nerds On Site, a technology partner to small- and medium-sized businesses.
In 1995, John was working as a computer technician at an electronics big-box store when he saw a need in the marketplace for ‘personalized’ technology service, and an opportunity to break the ice between computer owners and computer nerds. That same year, John, along with David Redekop, co-founded ‘Nerds On Site’ to fill this void in the market and provide onsite services to homes and businesses.
After founding Nerds On Site in 1995, John has helped to grow the business to include hundreds of ‘Nerds’ (independent contractors) across nine countries. John has stayed closely involved in aspects such as marketing, talent attraction and retention, eNerd (EntrepreNERD) training, and business process systems development.
John currently resides in Clarksburg, Ontario with his wife and three children.
David is a Nerds On Site co-founder and has a passion for technology, especially in how it can improve our lives and organizations. As a co-founder of Nerds On Site (Canada), David has enjoyed the non-stop pursuit of the better-in-class technologies that can enable enterprises, businesses, and individuals alike.
David was born in Mexico, immigrated to Canada at the age of 15, and speaks 4.5 languages. He studied Computer Science and Actuarial Science at the University of Waterloo. He is married and has five young sons with high expectations to be a positive part of the change the world is experiencing at an accelerating rate.
He believes the Internet is one of the greatest resources ever created by man. It can build or destroy. He believes we can keep building to make it even better together.
