Michael Chung

Michael Chung

President

Michael founded Neetek in 2006 to help companies bridge the gaps that often result when trying to create a comprehensive IT strategy with limited headcount and a finite budget. He constantly encountered these challenges in his career prior to Neetek where he held IT Management positions at various companies of different sizes in a wide variety of industries but always had this same problem. It seemed difficult to find an IT company that could be flexible enough to meet all of the constantly changing IT needs driven by the business, especially at tech startups and other fast growing companies, and that is how Neetek started. In his free time, Michael enjoys spending time with his son, riding motorcycles, and has a passion for good food and wine.
