The beginning

The Computer Center was founded in 1983 by Paul Braun in order to provide computer training to job seekers and employees of businesses in Rock County and the surrounding areas. With several locations, including Beloit, Janesville, and Monroe, the company successfully educated its students on, then new, technologies such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and DOS.

Shifting strategy

In the mid-90s the funding that started the company, combined with the changes and growing general usage of computers, allowed The Computer Center to begin shifting its focus to servicing small businesses in the area. Successfully adapting to the changing industry The Computer Center transitioned to a single location and new focus of providing quality IT support for businesses. This focus and service continues today.

Into the 21st Century

Paul Braun retired in 2009, shortly after James Pearson, then a 10-year employee, purchased the business. The Computer Center has tripled in size and sales and continues to grow. The focus of providing exceptional IT support for businesses in Rock, Walworth, Dane and the surrounding communities still drives the company.
