Blake Schwank

CEO, Colorado Computer Support

Colorado Computer Support

Blake’s journey in technology started almost 40 years ago as a teenager when he and his father built a Heathkit 25” console television together. In 1988, Blake received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and was commissioned in the U.S. Army as a Medical Service Corps Officer. He served for eleven years from the Middle East to Alaska in healthcare administration and systems (IT) administration.When Blake left the Army, he knew he wanted to pursue a career in information technology. In 1999, he worked as the IT director in a mobile technology software company. The company he joined rapidly grew from 30 to 150 employees in two years and eventually folded with only five after the dot-com bust. The downturn allowed Blake to stay on part-time which gave him the time and opportunity to venture out and work as an independent IT Consultant. It was during this time that he started Colorado Computer Support.
