Square- Steve Favarger




“Steve is very thorough, professional, dependable, and knows his stuff. He and his support staff can tackle anything you throw at them.”

-Satisfied Customer

With over 24 years of experience, Steve Favarger is a seasoned professional, specializing in IT services. Throughout his career, Steve has led and managed multiple intrinsic I.T. focused projects and teams – including handling the Macintosh I.T. infrastructure transition during the World Savings Bank / Wachovia business merger. He also served as CTO for MacCentric Solutions for a number of years before he decided to strike out on his own, dedicating his time fully to servicing the I.T. needs of small to medium-sized businesses as with his own firm.

Today, Favarger has become a leader in ensuring HIPAA compliance to medical practices, while also servicing a wide range of clientele, partnering with AC Transit, West Coast Children’s Clinic, and UC Berkeley – to name a few.

Steve has an expansive knowledge of technology trends and best practices in the I.T. field. His ability to work with a variety of tech environments empowers his qualifications to provide expert advice to his client partners. Furthermore, those strengths paired with his unique ability to understand (from experience) the needs of managers, leadership, and users alike, allows him to recommend budget-conscious solutions that function smoothly and adapt gracefully.
