CEO at BeringMcKinley
Josh Peterson is the founder and CEO of Bering McKinley, a management consulting firm serving IT Solution Providers from around the world. For over 14 years the mission has been to provide blue chip strategic and operational consulting to companies looking for exceptional growth, profit, and exit strategies. As the longest tenured consultant in the IT space Josh and his team continue to deliver and exceed client expectations. Bering McKinley is also the longest running independent ConnectWise consulting firm in the industry with over 20,000 hours spent working with clients and end users.
Josh’s presentations at IT Nation, Autotask Community Live, Tech Select, Channel Pro and other major industry events are filled with real life scenarios, humor, and a harsh dose of accountability.
Josh rejects cookie cutter solutions, “one to many consulting”, and anything that smells like a so called scalable approach to consulting. Bering McKinley solutions are designed, tested, and implemented to meet each client’s unique circumstances. Clients benefit from the success and struggles of those who came before them.
With an MBA and an undergraduate degree in education, Josh has studied how organizations work, how to train owners and staff on new and difficult concepts, and how to build teams that succeed for everyone involved.
Along with Josh’s passion for innovation and business he also enjoys flying, World Series of Poker events, and spending as much time possible traveling with his wife and two sons. Recently Josh completed (run would be an exaggeration) the NYC Marathon and the NYC ½ Marathon with several Bering McKinley Peer Team members.
