Paul grew up always having the latest computers around, because his dad, Jerry, was in the computer field.  He has fond memories of learning to use a computer with games like TI Invaders on a Texas Instruments TI-99. In addition to learning about computers from his father, he also learned a lot about thinking like a business owner.  Eventually the two teamed up and co-founded Dedicated Networks, Inc. in 2005.  As with a number of small startups, in the early days of DNI, Paul and Jerry handled all aspects of the business themselves.  From purchasing and sales, to shipping and receiving, to accounting and technical, these two did it all.  As the company grew, Paul focused mostly on the sales and purchasing roles.  Today, Paul is the CEO and Sales Manager. His real passion is for developing people, and helping them become the best they can be.  He earned his B.A. in Marketing Management from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN.
