Brad McDermith, CEO
Brad started his first venture building PCs and hosting websites in High School, which is what sparked his interest in technology and ultimately brought McDermith to Computer Options. He started out as a PC technician in 1998, when Computer Options was a one-year old startup. Driven with tenacity and motivation, Brad has been an integral part in assisting to make the company a leading Inland Empire influence in Managed IT and Cybersecurity. Through his vast Peer Board experience and vCIO roles Brad has helped hundreds of companies be more successful with technology and a business-value approach. From unique technology solutions to the Balance Sheet, Brad is passionate about making business better.
Brad successfully built and sold his high school company and has served as Computer Options’ CEO for the last 12 years. He remains passionate about faith, family and making business better. Married for eight years to Anita, Brad is also a very proud father of two children, Scarlett, 5 and Oliver, 1. When he’s not helping businesses understand and expand their technology, or chasing his two young kids, he enjoys aviation, drones, firearms, real estate and cars. McDermith keeps himself busy but still has found the time to serve on multiple boards, is involved with his local community, holds an 11-year membership with Vistage International, and is a deacon at The Well Church in Yucaipa, CA.
McDermith has received leadership awards from Vistage International for nine out of 11 years of membership and led CCO to win Cal State San Bernardino’s prestigious Spirit-of-the-Entrepreneur award in 2014.
