Over the course of 25 years spent working in the software and professional services industry, Mike Khattab has learned a thing or two about protecting IT infrastructure, recovering from disasters, and managing systems for large companies. Motivated by a passion to bring the same caliber of high-quality IT services to small and mid-market businesses, the Illinois entrepreneur is now president and CEO of CMIT Solutions of Naperville and Orland Park.
“The CMIT model perfectly fits my career experience and my passion to serve the customer base in my territory,” says Khattab, whose office will serve more than 11,000 businesses in the two territories.
Showcasing his expertise and dedication to his community, the Chicago Tribune quoted Khattab on the recent security breach that exposed the personal information of more than 50,000 past and present Naperville-area students. Additionally, in an interview with local media, Khattab shared his enthusiasm for helping the community where he lives.
“Small, mid-market, and enterprise-sized businesses throughout Naperville and Orland Park that have felt the pain of productivity coming to a halt when their computers, networks, and servers fail them — or are simply unhappy with their current or former IT service provider — need look no further,” Khattab says. “These businesses will now have access to a full-time IT staff they can trust at prices they can afford.”
While Khattab joins the CMIT Solutions family with decades of IT expertise, aspiring entrepreneurs don’t need experience in the industry. Passionate men and women from all walks of life — finance, sales, marketing, and more — have successfully launched their own businesses under the CMIT Solutions franchise umbrella.
CMIT Solutions keeps a finger on the pulse of ever-changing trends in the IT industry so that franchisees in more than 200 locations across North America can deliver targeted small business IT solutions to their clients. As part of the CMIT Solutions family, franchisees like Khattab can lean on corporate and peer-to-peer support like Mastermind Groups to build thriving businesses. Khattab is excited to leverage the franchising model to bring unparalleled peace of mind to his clients and help small to mid-market businesses flourish.
