Cary M. Root – Founder and President, 1981 – 2023

At that time, the most popular PC’s were Radio Shack, KayPro, Osborne and Compaq. Six months later IBM introduced it’s first PC, and so began the IT revolution.

Cary M. Root founded Root-InfoTech. He had over 40 years of experience in the information technology and training fields as well as Bachelors and Masters degrees from Purdue University. Cary previously worked at Burroughs Corporation in Detroit as a systems analyst, and at Cleveland Consulting Associates in Beachwood as the partner in charge of IT.
