Our Story

Productivity, Enhanced. Lives, Enriched.

That is our Mission. 

TekTegrity was founded in 2005 by Russ Levanway. After an 8-year stint in the IT department at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo where he received an Associate of Science Degree, Russ designed TekTegrity’s first IT service offerings to meet the needs of educational institutions. 

Shortly thereafter Russ partnered with fellow Cuesta College alum and IT department technician Jeremy Koellish who was providing IT support to a handful of wine industry clients. With a shared history of working in Cuesta’s IT department and desire to go out on their own, Russ and Jeremy joined forces to grow TekTegrity into a full managed services company.

The duo quickly expanded operations and brought on Cal Poly alums John Lim as CTO and Jeff Bower as VP of Sales to grow their technical team and build a sales department. This move facilitated their expansion into Fresno where they felt there was a growing need for premium managed services. 

With the newly expanded team, TekTegrity was now equipped to offer a robust set of IT support services for businesses and healthcare practices including data backup, network security, hosted exchange and IT consulting. Later they would expand once more to include cloud hosting, business continuity solutions, internet infrastructure for large-scale residential projects and IT support for IT departments.

As part of their continued growth strategy, TekTegrity developed the mission ‘Productivity Enhanced, Lives, Enriched’ to add deeper meaning to the technical guidance and managed IT services they were offering their San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria and Fresno clients. 

Over the years TekTegrity has been awarded numerous industry accolades including being named to the Managed Service Provider 500 list by CRN, was recognized by Inc. as one of the fastest growing private companies in America and appears in the Fresno Business Journal's Book of Lists year after year. Philanthropy is also central to TekTegrity’s operations and the team provides free managed services support to several nonprofits throughout San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria and Fresno.
