Belhaven Hosts Bomgar for National Bus Tour Launch and Anniversary

September 5, 2013 (Jackson) - Bomgar, the leader in remote support solutions and one of the nation’s fastest growing companies, began at Belhaven University and returned to the campus on Thursday, September 5 at 11:00 a.m. to celebrate their 10-year anniversary and kick-off the Bomgar Across America Tour.

Belhaven University is the first of 45 stops to colleges and universities around the country. "We made Belhaven the first stop on the Bomgar Across America Tour because it's where I took the first steps in building Bomgar more than a decade ago,” said, Joel Bomgar, Founder and CEO.

Belhaven students, faculty and Bomgar employees with Governor Phil Bryant commemorated the 10-year anniversary of the Belhaven-born company, complete with birthday cake, balloons, live music and giveaways. "Belhaven is where I learned the fundamentals of running a business and met my co-founders and many future co-workers, making it a key ingredient in my company's success."

Dr. Roger Parrott, President of Belhaven University, said, "When Joel started this business on our campus, we thought it was a way for him to get through school, but his vision and determination grew his dream into one of the South's leading companies. We are incredibly proud of them, and along with Joel, are thrilled that a large percentage of his employees are also Belhaven graduates."

Bomgar’s all-orange bus will not be hard to miss as it travels coast-to-coast with the purpose of promoting higher education and educating students about information technology as well as the company. The tour will end at the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference in Anaheim, CA, which is the premier conference for higher education technology.

The Bomgar bus will feature hands on interactive demos and a chance for students to meet with Bomgar technical experts. Bomgar has helped more than 600 college and university IT organizations make tech support easier.
