From dairy farm to IT solutions and services powerhouse , NetGain Technologies’ CEO knows hard work is no bull

NetGain Technologies celebrates 30 years in business

Lexington, Ky (August 24, 2014) – NetGain Technologies Inc., a region-leading managed IT solutions and services provider, announced today that August 24, 2014 marks the company’s 30th anniversary since its founding in 1984.

Thirty years ago, founder Don Jacobson, left his University of Kentucky Agriculture professor position and family dairy farm to establish a single retail store to sell his cost feed formula software bundled with the personal computer. The company was based on a simple idea; hard work and treat the customer right.

The next year, after six years of drought, Don’s son Mark left the farm to join the company. In 1996 Mark asked his brother Jim to become partners and they bought the firm from their dad.

NetGain Technologies remains a privately held business under the leadership of CEO & owner, Mark and COO & owner, Jim.

“I’m so proud to know we came from such humble beginnings and now provide jobs for over 150 people. Good jobs, the kind that provide for lots of families. And our team works hard to make sure the systems run for our customers so they can provide for their families. It’s all very humbling,” said Mark Jacobson.

NetGain Technologies will celebrate its anniversary on Friday, August 22 at all six of its branch locations, including Louisville, Kentucky, Chattanooga, Tennessee, Cincinnati, Ohio, Little Rock, Arkansas, St. Louis, Missouri, and its headquarters in Lexington, Kentucky.
