Meet Tim Conkle of The 20 in Plano

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tim Conkle.

Tim, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I worked at EDS for years as a UNIX Administrator and knew that working for someone else the rest of my life wasn’t for me. As I was scouring the classifieds in the Dallas Morning News, I saw an ad that an IT company, Roland Technology Group, was for sale. I had already started my own computer repair shop out of my house and it was quickly growing. I thought this was the best way to accelerate and fuel that growth which is how I became the owner of Roland Technology Group.

Has it been a smooth road?
I bounced along for 20 years with anemic growth. I crafted a unique sales proposition that differentiated Roland Technology Group and built a team that provided excellent service delivery to our clients. What I couldn’t figure out was how to get my phone to ring. I tried every avenue on the market until one day I decided to take the reins and after a period of time and a significant investment, I mastered lead generation with Google Adwords. Once I put all of those pieces together, Roland Technology Group grew exponentially. Soon after, I realized that every single IT company experiences the exact same issues which is how The 20 came into existence. The 20 provides IT companies the exact same tools and formulas so that all of its members can duplicate that same growth in their businesses.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
The 20 is a business development group for the IT industry focused on ultimate scalability and aggressive growth for Managed Service Providers. The 20 provides a proven multi-million-dollar sales model, collective expertise, a standardized singular model for maximum efficiency, and unified resources to propel MSPs into the top 20% of the IT industry. Its channel-only solutions enable MSPs complete freedom to grow at any rate without the traditional hurdles commonly experienced when scaling their business. With the group’s extensive knowledge and expertise, unparalleled support and service, and unbeatable sales model, The 20 helps MSPs drive new acquisitions and lower overall cost.

The 20 is most known for its unique model and its quality of members. Its most proud of the camaraderie and its members overall outlook and contribution to the growth of the entire group. Nothing currently exists where each owner retains ownership of his/her business while tapping into the power of the tools and services of the group.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Texas is overall a fantastic state for business. The Dallas market specifically is great for both building a local or national business. If someone was just starting out, I would recommend Dallas based on whether their products were. Overall, Dallas has a good business climate and as long as it’s a good business atmosphere, companies can thrive without being stifled by over regulation.
