JEFF BERG

Our Original Founder

To describe Jeff Berg, people often use the following three words and phrases:  Integrity. Charisma.  Born Entrepreneur.  As president of Computer Troubleshooters of Las Vegas, a local IT services company, Berg brings these terms to life every day, leading one of the fastest growing computer repair and technology companies in the U.S.

But don’t get the impression that Berg is just a business leader.  Always giving back to the community, Berg is an active member of the Las Vegas Rotary, participating in fundraising and charitable activities including “Santa Clothes,” where he and his fellow Rotarians shop with more than 300 underprivileged youth to provide clothing they can pick out for themselves.  He is also part of the 25 Club for the Rotary and helped to raise more than $20,000 and distribute more than 200,000 cans of food this past year.  The company is also an active member in the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce and the Technology Business Alliance of Nevada.

Berg’s ability to communicate as an effective leader may stem from his upbringing.  Berg was born in the Bronx, New York and worked his way through college at Boston University and the State University of New York at New Paltz.  It’s the New York upbringing that has molded him into a no-nonsense business leader who stops at nothing to help his company, his employees and his customers succeed.

Berg and his wife, Penny, live in the Queensridge community of Las Vegas.

While Berg is now a leader in the field of computer technology, he spent most of his career building a highly successful property and casualty insurance brokerage in New City, New York.  He retired from that business in 2007 and began managing personal investments.  During his more than 35 years in business, Berg always dabbled in technology, attending a Computer Studies program for two years at Columbia University and pioneering new ways of using technology to build his insurance practice.  In 2009, after retiring and moving to Las Vegas, Berg followed his lifelong passion of a second career in the field of computer sciences.  He bought the local franchise of Computer Troubleshooters and in just two short years, has become recognized nationwide as a rising star in the company, quickly leading the franchise to become the go-to computer technology and repair company in the Las Vegas valley. After almost 40 years in the Work Force Jeff Decided it was time to retire and in August of 2012 sold  the  Las Vegas Computer Troubleshooters Franchise to its new Young and Dynamic President and Owner Nicholas Ellis who would change the company into the new Computer Technology Group of Las Vegas
