Sean Canevaro started Keep IT Simple (KIS) in 1988 after beginning his career at a VAR. He envisioned a company where all of the diverse needs of clients could be met, where manufacturer sales incentives did not dictate which solutions were sold, and where great people shared their talents and expertise with each other and their clients. Today, Sean is still CEO of KIS, and his vision is a reality.

We’ve adapted at the pace of technology: from providing video cards and monitors to complete virtualized networks, we stay at the cutting edge of technology. What remains constant is our belief that “best-of-breed” does not mean “expensive,” our commitment to quality, and our dedication to providing great customer service.

Over time, KIS has joined forces with 6 different companies whose owners saw a unique opportunity to build a more robust business. We have grown into one of Northern California’s largest multidisciplinary consulting staffs. Many members of our team have been with KIS for 10 years or longer. We are the best at what we do – find out how we can help you!
