Jim Harryman

Founder & CEO

JIM HARRYMAN

Jim is the fearless leader of the Kinetic team. He founded Kinetic more than two decades ago with one simple purpose – make technology do what it promises to do. He has spent the last 25 years doing just that. Every IT system Jim mans is fully subservient to its owner. When he isn’t reveling in new technology, he spends time with his wife Julia and their two sons who are grown, married, and both expecting babies.

CHAD THORNE

CTO

Chad Thorne

Chad bought his very first Mac as a senior in high school and hasn’t looked back since. To him, pushing the limit involves figuring out just how far he can push the performance on a Mac and testing his own IT knowledge and capabilities at the same time. This Cowtown native is super handy when it comes to configuring and deploying business networks and is one of 14 people on the planet who actually knows where ALL of the wires go.

BRETT HARRYMAN

Director of Business Development

BRETT HARRYMAN

Brett has been with Kinetic since he was six months old ­– just not always as an employee. However, Brett has taken all that he’s learned about the IT space in that time and developed a reputation among our clients as someone they can trust. Brett loves being able to share his knowledge to help Kinetic Technology Group grow your business. When Brett’s not in the office, for now, you’ll likely find him on the golf course, playing drums or hanging with his dog, Sonny. But soon, these will be a thing of the past because he and his wife are expecting twins!

Kyle has a strong faith, and in his spare time, you can find him at home or at church with his wife, three daughters, and son.

Ashley developed a passion for supporting technology in businesses during her career with Apple. Her expertise shines through with process, operations, and building relationships with customers. She aims to solve problems and provide a resource for others while educating and empowering them to do the same.
