At age 22, Spencer Ferguson became an entrepreneur by founding Wasatch Software, which specialized in software license sales and consulting. The company quickly grew to become the #1 reseller of Microsoft products in Utah. In 2010, Spencer led a change of direction in the organization’s focus, renaming it Wasatch I.T., and added a new division focused on outsourced technical support for small- and medium-sized businesses. While roughly 1,000 companies in the state offer the same service, Wasatch I.T. has already become one of the five largest. The organization has won numerous awards throughout its history, including “Inc. 5000,” “Utah 100,” “Microsoft Partner of the Year” and many others.
Mr. Ferguson was named to Utah Business magazine’s “Forty under 40” at the age of 29 and is an alumnus of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program. He has also served the community as the chairman of ChamberWest Chamber of Commerce and on the advisory council of Tech Data’s TechSelect program.
