Leon Gulchin, President
Leon Gulchin is the owner and founder of Small Office Networks (S.O.N). In 1998, after many years in the Fortune 500 world, he developed a concept for delivering big company technology to the Small-to-Mid Sized Business market. He tested this concept by researching the resources available to small business owners with limited budgets. Mr. Gulchin quickly saw the massive gap between their individual needs and the availability of cost-effective solutions. His research showed a great need for simple yet robust support delivered at a price that competed with both hourly consultants and full-time employees. S.O.N. was formed and designed to address those needs.
Prior to founding S.O.N. Mr. Gulchin worked for Wells Fargo Bank as their Senior Security Consultant in San Francisco, CA. He managed and designed state-of-the-art encryption and high-level security infrastructure for the bank’s entire network. Prior to Wells Fargo Mr. Gulchin worked at Applied Materials Corporation as a Real-time Software Engineer. In that role he designed process automation software for state of the art chip manufacturing plants. This extremely complex design process honed his analytical skills and deepened his appreciation for UNIX as a support platform.
Mr. Gulchin speaks 5 languages. He has an extensive history of international business with contacts and clients throughout Europe, Middle East, and Asia.
Small Office Networks was founded in 1998 as a subsidiary of New Century Consulting, Inc. S.O.N. was chartered with meeting the needs of the small-to-mid sized business community. The parent company, New Century Consulting, continues to focus upon meeting the needs of larger corporations.
The founding principal for S.O.N. was to deliver the highest quality IT support available at the lowest rates possible. It was designed to give small business owners alternatives to expensive hourly consultants or full-time employees. Unfortunately, due to the lack of technical expertise small business is often exploited when it comes to technology. We like to think of ourselves, and our clients agree, as the "good guys" of tech support.
