In 2004, Darin Schoumaker founded ManagedNet Technology Solutions, an IT consulting and management firm that offers high- end Information Technology knowledge that is geared specifically toward individual business needs. Darin and the ManagedNet staff serve a national client base, but the company is located in Orange ￼Darin graduated from California State University, Fullerton, with a degree in Electrical Engineering and entered into the networking industry, working primarily for banks and healthcare companies, helping them to set up the proper systems to take advantage of technology that was in demand in the rapidly-changing business culture. All of these challenges and opportunities to help businesses assimilate to these changes sparked an immediate passion in Darin. He discovered that he had a distinct edge because of his ability to be able to relay highly technical concepts in a way that technology resistant businesses or individuals could grasp, and even embrace. For over twenty-five years, Darin has effectively worked with companies and industries, taking the time to understand their specific needs. This is how he formulates plans for businesses regarding which technology they need and ensures that it’ll keep working securely for the business and be able to manage its future growth. Darin is also known as the man who can step into any technology-related business disaster and help put the pieces back together again. He creates plans that help ensure that a business is never made vulnerable again by a compromise in their technology, whether it is via the Internet or data that is downloaded. Once Darin gains a client, they are most always a client-for- life. Darin and his wife Mary, along with his children Chase and Cady, make their home in the sunny Southern California area. Their two terrier mix dogs, Joey and Lucy, were adopted from a local animal rescue organization and bring much joy to their family. When Darin’s not working, he’s actively involved in his community, serving for ten years on his HOA board, setting up community events, and enjoying his affiliation with Boy Scouts of America, where he has finished Wood Badge Training and is now staff for BSA Wood Badge Courses, which is an advanced leadership training course. He also serves as Advancement Chairman for his son’s Boy Scout troop, having personally helped mentor over thirty young men on their journey to become an Eagle Scout. He’s inspired to provide quality experiences and leadership opportunities to the youth in his community. When it comes to causes, Darin is passionate about helping find a cure for Diabetes, a disease that hit home when his son was diagnosed with it in 2011. Doing what he can to give hope of a cure to those who suffer from this disease is important to him. For the other adventures in Darin’s life, he always welcomes an opportunity for hiking or kayaking, as well as other outdoor activities. You can reach Darin at: (800) 808-0638, ext. 810.
