Computer Qwerx has been serving the downtown Saint Petersburg and surrounding areas for nearly 15 years. Qwerx started as an idea on a front porch in The Historic Old North East District by Brian Word. With two master’s degrees under his belt, he traveled all over the world, experiencing all life had to offer. He had a deep appreciation for computer technology and regularly repaired computers for friends. Very aware that the “box store’s tech squads” were over-priced, he also knew they did not take an ideal approach to really caring about the customers’ individual computer needs. In early 2001 he developed the idea of Computer Qwerx, where “We Beat The Geek”. By June 1st of that year he established a Location downtown .
Bill Ledsome shared this vision and joined the company in 2006, as a sweat equity partner. Bill began learning and working on computers as a teen. He completed his first network while still in middle school and has had ongoing training for 15 years, plus endless computer repair success stories. Having owned a number of successful small businesses, prior to Computer Qwerx, Bill quickly proved himself to be an essential member of the “Beat the Geek” team. By 2007, Bill was a full partner. In 2009, Bill Ledsome purchased full ownership of the company and continues to operate the company today.
