Company History & Mission
Past, present and future.
Our Origin Story
Helping people use tech is driving force behind TUCU.
Prior to founding TUCU, Adam Thorn worked in corporate IT with positions in telecommunications at Nortel and in network security at CIBC and HP Canada.
Back then, there weren't many people offering IT Support to small and mid sized business. Adam saw a need and wanted to help - to give SMB's the same layers of IT security, user access control and data management the big guys have. With several Microsoft Certifications and years of experience under his belt, Adam left corporate IT in 2003 and set out to fix techaches.
As a freelance IT Consultant in Toronto for many years, Adam helped shape the networks of many small businesses. In time, cyber security needs for SMB's changed in response to growing threats and ransomware. In 2010, TUCU began offering monthly IT Management Services and thus became a Managed Service Provider (MSP).
Most MSP's chase corporations with offers to replace their IT staff. We stay true to our vision and offer to create an IT department for your SMB.
Today, TUCU is a top rated IT Company in Toronto that specializes in Managed IT Services for SMB's.
