Gary Thomas on “Focusing On The Next 86 Years” of LEAP Managed IT

Gary Thomas has been a part of LEAP Managed IT’s 86-year-old story for almost a quarter of a century.

During this time, he had the courage to make bold moves and encourage change. But he also stayed true to the company’s core values and channeled his efforts towards increasing customer satisfaction.

Want to know more?

Here’s an insightful interview with LEAP Managed IT’s president, Gary Thomas. Read on to find out more about what has kept them in business for almost a century.

Q: Tell us a little bit about your professional journey from Sales Representative at Thomas Office Machines to Partner at LEAP Managed IT.

A: It’s been a great journey and a natural progression. I was blessed enough to work with some great people including Michael and my father, Wayne when he was working day-to-day in the business. 

He was always so focused on the customer, it was like second nature. He said: “Always run at a customer, never away.”

Meaning a face-to-face conversation is always better than email, phone or ignoring them.  

At the end of the day, we do business with people, and that’s what I’ve truly enjoyed from sales rep to partner.

Q: How has the company changed in the 22 years you have been part of it?

A: The technology deliverable changes right off the bat have been mind-blowing. From analog copiers to digital, to the new threats in IT security, it’s changed a ton.  

The number one change is collaboration. It’s no disrespect for how we worked 15 plus years ago, but it’s no shock to say that business has become more complicated.

We collaborate better as a team, with partners, with clients better than we ever have. It’s necessary to see projects through to the end with the greatest success.  



Q: Your business has managed to stay on the market for over 85 years. What do you consider are the main reasons you are still a successful business?

A: The core of our success revolves around supporting the customer. The technologies are always going to change, but being committed to communicating well, setting reasonable expectations and being creative in solving opportunities is critical.

Q: What are some major changes you’ve noticed in your mindset and everyday work compared to five years ago?

A: My mindset compared to five years ago is 180 degrees different. If we just look at managing technology for our clients, we not only have to look at today’s opportunities, budgets, and challenges but have a crystal ball to make foundational decisions for the short term plus 3, 5 and 10 years down the road.  

I look at every solution and business decision that helps a client with a personal decision like I’m making it for our own organization.  

Q: What motivated the team behind the business to change from Thomas Office to LEAP Managed IT?

A: Our name change was a natural evolution in our 86-year-old history. We aren’t the same organization from a technical deliverable point-of-view, but we are the same for taking care of clients’ needs.  

We are in the people business and that will never change. Our motivation for change is focusing on the next 86 years and it’s giving us a platform to tell our story.

We have amazing, smart people on our team solving business problems we would have never dreamed about 10 years ago. Clients rely on us to serve their clients and operate a profitable organization. We are a part of their success and that’s what makes it awesome.   

Q: If you could offer three pieces of advice to managers of organizations who don’t know if they should pivot or not, what would they be?

A: If you don’t pivot at the right moment, the marketplace will change around you and it will make it harder to lead. Investing in your organization is priority number one in having the opportunity to be successful.  

We can’t dictate what our competition is doing and, frankly, I’m not even concerned in what they are doing. If we take care of ourselves, make tough decisions, work on the process of continually improving, then everything else takes care of itself.   

Secondly, your workforce doesn’t only want to be competitive but they want to win. Everyone wants to be on a winning team leading new ideas and innovations in the marketplace. If you aren’t challenging them to grow, change and solve problems, then they will leave. It’s not all about the paycheck.  

The last part is about looking internally as a business leader:

  • What do you want?  
  • What stamp do you want to leave on your business, employees, clients, and community?

We can look at examples of half-hearted relationships and businesses. Complaints that business is down because of road construction, or it’s hard to find the right people or whatever the next excuse is.  

We all have that stuff in our businesses, and as a leader, it’s our job to look at everything as an opportunity.

Change before you have to, be committed to the process, grind it out, give 100%, don’t assume, be a better friend, be a great business partner, deliver ‘Wow!’ and have a blast.

Dr. Michael Goldsby Interview – Pivot 2016 Conference

Dr. Michael Goldsby, Chief Entrepreneurial Officer at Ball State University, will be joining us for an interview.

He will be discussing:

  • His time as a professor and how it has helped others
  • The three “go-to” lessons any entrepreneur should know
  • The success of the Launch Indiana and Launch Fishers programs
  • An exclusive preview of his “Driving Big Innovation” speech at the Pivot 2016 conference

We are confident you will like what the two Launch programs have in store for the future of Indiana. The same goes for his speech at the Pivot Indiana sessions, held Wednesday, November 16th, at Launch Fishers.

If you are an emerging entrepreneur, or just want to refine your skills, you cannot miss Dr. Goldsby’s lectures. Let’s begin.

Interview with Dr. Michael Goldsby

1. What made you want to become a Professor of Management at the University of Southern Indiana?

I grew up in Southern Indiana, so the opportunity to come back to Indiana and start my career there appealed to me.

2. What made you switch to teaching at Ball State University, Indiana?

At the time, I was building up a pretty good record for a young professor, so I was being recruited by seven universities to come work for them.

Ball State appealed to me because of the opportunity to work for Dr. Don Kuratko in the Entrepreneurship Program.

I always like to say that I feel like I have two doctorates: One in Strategic Management and Ethics from Virginia Tech, and another in entrepreneurship from Don Kuratko.

He continues to mentor me in my career, which is a huge honor for me.

3. Tell us a bit about your 15-year tenure as Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurship.

I started out as an Assistant Professor, and in true entrepreneurial fashion I kept working hard and embracing the opportunities that came my way. Ball State has been very good to me.

As Chief Entrepreneurship Officer, Executive Director of the John H. Schnatter Institute for Entrepreneurship and Free Enterprise, the Stoops Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurship, and a Professor of Management, I can work on a variety of projects across campus and around the state related to entrepreneurship and productivity.

My favorite part of the job is still related to scholarships, though, and I think it’s important to continue to build a body of knowledge that helps me be more useful to all my constituencies.

In my heart, I’m a teacher and scholar, so I like to see all these domains as just different forms of a classroom.

pivot 2016 conference

4. What is the most important things you can tell a person about management/entrepreneurship?

I think the three “go-to” ideas for an entrepreneur are:

  1. Do your homework and ground your ideas in reality. Be humble enough to change when the facts are different than what you expected.
  2. From that reality, approach your market from new angles your competition might be overlooking. How can you address customer problems your competition is maybe missing?
  3. Be maniacal about managing your time, money, energy, and other resources. Channel everything you have to fulfill your mission. Always ask yourself: “Is what I’m about to do going to help me get to where I want to be in 3 to 5 years?” If not, get back on track.

5. Under your leadership, the Schnatter Institute has created the Launch Indiana program to “send a team of people to solve a town’s business problems.” You’ve already worked with Crawfordsville and Washington.

How much success would you say the program has had?

I think the program is off to a great start. The program has helped communities re-frame what problems they’re facing in a way that can take actionable and affordable steps to solve them.

Also, community members are recognizing their leadership potential and are stepping up as change agents to help their cities stay relevant and healthy.

In the future, we’ll be bringing these communities together to share best practices for common problems around the state.

I’m very happy with this activity and look forward to expanding our presence in it in the near future. Our goal is to reach 20 cities over the next year.

6. The Launch Fishers program “matches students to companies in Fishers, Indiana, to help them gain real-world experience.”

How have the students fared in this program?

I’ve talked with the companies, students, and professors and all seem happy with the experience.

Companies received additional ideas on how to reach their next milestones, the professors get to teach in a place outside the traditional classroom, and the students gain confidence that they have a new skill set that will help them pursue any opportunity that comes their way.

Additionally, some of the students attained jobs with the companies they assisted in the class. That’s a great outcome because it keeps our entrepreneurial talent in the state.

7. Did any of your own students find their way into the program? What progress did they make?

I no longer teach undergraduates. However, I still teach an online MBA program in entrepreneurship. I have students from all over the world from a variety of backgrounds in the class, so it’s fun to work with their ideas.

Many of the students actually launch their businesses. One company that comes to mind is Firefly Home Healthcare founded by Larson Manifold. He’s up to 150 healthcare workers working for him in three states now – after only three years after taking my classes.

He worked on the idea in my classes, so it’s satisfying to think of 150 people providing for their families and helping address the needs of senior citizens from my class projects.

Of course, Larson and his wife did all the hard work in making it possible, but it shows the potential entrepreneurship classes have for impacting society. It’s a safe place to learn and think about ideas before investing your resources into a business.

8. Seeing as the Pivot 2016 conference takes place at Launch Fishers, do you expect to have the same success?

Yes, I think your audience will see that Launch Fishers is a unique place. I think it’s a national model for how to stimulate and support innovative ideas and develop tomorrow entrepreneurial leaders.

John Wechsler and Mayor Fadness are a great team, and we’re lucky to have Launch Fisher’s model in the middle of the state where others can emulate it. I’m honored to be associated with it.

Every time I’m there I enjoy the energy and excitement taking place. I think your audience will feel the same way.

9. Tell us a bit about your “Driving Big Innovation” speech.

I want my audience to see that big innovation doesn’t always require a big investment upfront. A big investment can come later from finding a unique angle on a customer problem your competitors are overlooking.

Creative equity coupled with sweat equity can lead to bigger financial equity later down the line.

10. A final question – you are an accomplished professor with multiple publications in media outlets such as ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN and the Associated Press. Where do you see yourself going from there?

I’m entrepreneurial and always open to whatever opportunities come my way. But for me, it’s not about money. Although, that’s always nice because it can fund whatever I’m curious about.

It’s more about life satisfaction and enjoying what I’m doing. With that in mind, I’ve figured out that my personal mission statement is “To have interesting conversations with interesting people wherever that may be.”

Ideas, people, experiences, and philosophies that give me new ways of looking at the world interest me. Things that stretch me and challenge my body and mind keep me going.

With that in mind, I’ll seize any opportunities that fit that description – travel, scholarship, talks like this, jobs, races, whatever.

Thank you for your time, Dr. Goldsby.

PIVOT 2016 Speakers: Brian Graham on The Road From Marketing to Brewing

The upcoming PIVOT 2016 conference is speculated to be Indiana’s business event of the year.  It will feature an excellent selection of speakers and unique networking opportunities.

Well, we’ve decided to get in touch with one of the speakers – just for you.  Here’s a short interview with Brian Graham.

He is the president and founder of Four Day Ray Brewing.  However, his experience doesn’t just encompass brewing beer – even if he’s been doing that for the last 20 years.

Without further ado, here’s what Brian has to say about his road from marketing to brewing and PIVOT 2016.Graham 3

1. How can you describe the first 10 years of your career, and what were the challenges you had to overcome to get where you are today?

A discovery is how I would describe the first ten years [of my career]. One of the biggest challenges was my interest in many different things.

I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up. In those first years, the one thing I did discover was I was a sales person.

2. You were the owner of Dick’s Bodacious BBQ/Hot Shotz.  Can you tell us more about your experience during that time and the obstacles you had to overcome?

I was taught a very expensive lesson.  The restaurant industry can be very cruel.  I ended up going bankrupt because of poor choices and lack of experience.  I thought I knew it all.

3. What are the three most important things you learned while working in marketing and sales?

  1. What you think matters to consumers doesn’t.
  2. You won’t get it if you don’t ask.
  3. People really don’t know what they want.

4. What made you switch from marketing and sales to brewing beer?

They really are the same thing. I have been brewing for 20 years and love good food.  I knew Fishers was missing this and want to provide a great culinary experience in an underserved market.


5. How was Four Day Ray Brewing born and why did you pick this name?

The railroad is part of Fishers’ history, Nickel Plate.  I wanted a name that people could relate to emotionally and that has a story.

Four Day Ray is a person so it is easy for people to connect the name with themselves or someone they know.  And FDR ended prohibition so there are multiple levels to the story.14680772_1296254283741877_806529177374791943_n

6. What are your plans for FDR and how do you see it evolving over the next five years?

We would like to own Hamilton Co. and be the beer of choice.  From there on, we would like to open small taprooms/restaurants so we can expand our tap handles.

7. What do you think is the most important thing every entrepreneur should know?

Things take longer than you think, cost more than you think, and require patience and time.

8. How do you feel about Indiana’s upcoming PIVOT 2016 conference, and what should the audience expect from your presentation?

I am excited to share some life lessons I learned and provide some fun education about beer.

Thank you for your time.

PIVOT 2016 Speakers: Interview with Jim Ittenbach, President of SMARI Research

PIVOT 2016 – Indiana’s business event of the year – is just around the corner.

Well, we decided to get in touch with one of the speakers, namely Jim Ittenbach.  This way, you get to know more about the person behind the presentation.

He founded SMARI, a custom market research company based in Indianapolis.  He’s a businessman and entrepreneur with over 44 years of experience.

Read on to find out what Jim Ittenbach has to say about his extended professional experience and the challenges he faced.

1. You began your career in 1972. What skills did your time at Herron Associates teach you, and how did it influence your professional view in the long run?

Herron Associates was my first job out of college, following a brief military adventure. While I had a personal interest in marketing, my work experience taught me the fundamental importance of inviting the consumer to participate whenever you are dealing with go-to-market decision making.

2. What was the main driving force behind SMARI?

The essence of SMARI is embedded within an acute desire to understand the consumer dynamic – we dogmatically seek to discover the motivating mysteries driving consumerism; with a perceptive focus on measuring the abilities of our clients to deliver a meaningful and rewarding customer experience.

3. You’ve been a senior partner at SMARI LLC for over 21 years. How did it shape your skills, career, and knowledge over the years?

As a senior partner, I have enjoyed working with very bright and talented individuals who constantly challenge and direct my ability to guide and deliver career opportunities that essentially reward our clients, our associates, and the company’s stakeholders.

Mindful that I must remain relevant, and to keep pace, continuous learning became a requisite and mentor support a rewarding necessity.

pivot 2016 jim ittenbach

4. How hard was it to successfully lead the LBO (Leveraged Buyout) of SMARI from the Associated Insurance Company? What influenced you to make this decision?

My experience at Associated Insurance Company, Anthem BCBS, was exceptionally rewarding. During my 10 years, our organization grew from a regional player to a Fortune 250 global enterprise.

Market drivers triggered a corporate decision to dramatically shift strategy from decentralization and diversification to consolidation and share dominance within the healthcare industry.

As such, entities within the overall corporate structure, that were not mission critical, were up for divestiture. I took advantage of this opportunity to position SMARI for divestiture and was fortunate to do so with a supporting LBO.

5. How did SMARI change since the LBO?

Post LBO, SMARI became a hybrid. Departing from a major corporate structure enabled us to keep in place the rigorous management tools and governance of big business, but allowed us to adopt the agility and mindset of an entrepreneurial smaller entity.

Yet, the reality that all you are and all that you have are at risk every day keep me highly focused and frequently exhausted.

6. What’s your biggest achievement as President of SMARI LLC?

Gathering and working with a talented pool of individuals that truly make a difference supporting the marketing and research needs of our clients. The result is a 95% client retention rate.

7. What are three of the most important aspects any entrepreneur should know?

  1. Never stop learning.
  2. Never stop improving.
  3. Always reward those who empower your success.

8. Are you excited for the upcoming PIVOT conference? What can the audience expect from your presentation?

PIVOT 2016 offers me an excellent opportunity to share in a learning experience with energetic leaders and aspiring individuals from a variety of careers – truly a rare opportunity.

I hope to share with the audience the energy that can be realized through discovery.

Thank you for your time.

PIVOT 2016 – Here’s What You Need to Know About the Upcoming Conference

Leap forward and grow your organization – this is one of the mottos of PIVOT 2016. This year’s conference is shaping up to be one of the main events for Indiana’s entrepreneurs, business owners, and non-profit leaders.

Experienced speakers with decades of experience will share their insightful know-how on finding new business directions and shifting strategy.

You may be wondering why this is important and why could it be of use to you. This is what this article will help you with.

Read on to find out more details about the conference.

Understanding the Connection between PIVOT 2016 and the Unicorn Club

To learn more on this topic and the conference itself, we need to look at the Unicorn Club. It’s a name attributed by Cowboy Ventures to U.S. based tech start-ups launched between 2003 and 2013 and that were valued at over 1 billion dollars at that time.

pivot 2016

Think along the lines of Facebook and LinkedIn. Thirty-nine companies made it to the Unicorn Club. They represent the top .07% of all companies. Facebook is considered to be a super-unicorn.

Another thing these unicorns had in common was pivoting. They all started with an untested hypothesis. They went out on the market and tested their premises. When they’ve discovered errors, they changed the hypothesis.

Long-story-short, they pivoted.

Why Should You Attend The Conference?

Pivots are essential to today’s businesses.

Still, some business owners assume a pivot is changing the product. However, a pivot can change many different things in your business model, such as:

  • Your customer segment
  • Your channel
  • Revenue model/pricing
  • Resources
  • Activities
  • Costs
  • Partners
  • Customer acquisitions


Participating gets you actionable information on how to get ahead of your competition and find the right focus for your business. This will help you grow your organization in a sustainable way.

Entrepreneurs, business professionals or community leaders can learn how to pivot from experienced presenters.
