New York, NY (October 5, 2012) - Robb Patterson, business development manager at Westchester and Manhattan-based Progressive Computing, Inc. (PCI), will participate in the 24-Hour Small Biz Makeover Contest during the New York Business Expo and Conference (NYXPO) at the Javits Center on October 17th. Patterson is also on the steering committee for the NYXPO, which will feature 200 exhibitors and 40 seminars, and is expected to draw more than 10,000 executives.
A leading technology consultant and advisor to businesses and community organizations, as well as a sought after speaker and writer in the New York metro area, Patterson will provide the Makeover winner with a 1-hour Microsoft Partner Consultation as part of the overall contest prize. The consultation will consist of a review of current technology adoption and planned future need. Based on this analysis, a technology plan can be implemented to ensure the right tools are in place to provide stability and foster growth.
“Educating business owners and helping them make the most of the technology resources available to them is my passion,” said Patterson. “The Makeover is a really fun and exciting way to do that, and I’m looking forward to participating for the second year in a row.”
At Progressive Computing, a Microsoft Small Business Specialist which designs, installs and maintains computer networks for small and mid-sized companies, Patterson is responsible for establishing new client relationships and acting as an account manager, working closely with PCI’s IT technicians to ensure each client’s total satisfaction. He also shares his expertise as founder and acting president of the New York Small Business Server Group and an active member of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, where he is Co-Chair of the Tech committee and a “select member” of the Mid-Market committee.
