About Us

CHIPS Technology Group, Inc. (CHIPS) was founded in 1993 through a unique collaboration between visionary childhood friends Evan Leonard and David Tan. Shortly after graduation from Hofstra University, Evan was approached by Hofstra to consult and architect a computerized ticketing system. Evan partnered with David to identify a solution, which they were then asked to manage. Rather than manage the system as Hofstra employees, Evan and David’s entrepreneurial spirit lead them to found CHIPS, and Hofstra University hired the emerging firm to run the system.

From that initial project, CHIPS grew to become a leader in Managed IT Services, Security, and Compliance.  Understanding that IT and security are always evolving, CHIPS has embraced a Security-First approach to manage our client environments.  Safeguarding corporate assets and personnel from non-compliance, downtime and IT security breaches that stall business initiatives while providing exceptional support is built into every aspect of our service offerings.

Strategic Approach

We believe that without a sound strategy based on each client’s objectives, even the best technology, people, and process will not achieve our client’s mission. That is why we take a strategic approach.

We embrace change, the unexpected, and things that don’t go as planned. This allows us to adapt, pivot, and keep pushing forward.
