Decades Of Hands-on Experience

Our Team

Our team has over 100 years of combined experience in the IT field. We've all operated IT businesses and served as consultants to other IT firms and MSPs. We've made the mistakes so you don't have to.


Steve Bowser

Steve founded True Profit Groups in 1991 because he saw how much IT firms struggled in isolation. Bringing them together in a peer group setting, Steve has helped hundreds of MSPs increase their bottom line and, in many cases, exit the business to great success. Steve is an avid hiker and lives in Phoenix with his wife, Maurine.

Peter Briden

In 1990 Peter founded PC Network Services. What started out as an independent computer consultancy transitioned into an award winning computer network support company which he sold in 2013 after 23 years in business. Peter is a winter sports enthusiast and lives in Pittsburgh with his wife, Kathy.


Prior to joining the TPG team, Peter was a TPG member.


Dave Sagraves

Dave bought the MSP he worked for in 2008 and grew it to one of the largest MSPs in the Southeast. As the head of sales, Dave was responsible for the growth from a small local firm to a dominant regional MSP with multiple locations. Dave sold the business in 2015 after 7 years as an owner and now resides in Nashville with his wife, Krista, and their three kids. He enjoys hunting and working on his farm.

Prior to joining the TPG team, Dave was a TPG member.



Ted Swanson

Ted founded IT Solutions in 1994 and grew it to a Top-100 Global MSP and software development firm. Ted sold the company to his employees through an ESOP in 2012 after 18 years and has consulted and moderated peer groups ever since. Ted enjoys scuba diving and golf. He lives with his wife, Beth, and their two kids in Philadelphia.

Prior to joining the TPG team, Ted was a TPG member.
