Gene Velasquez's email & phone | Mythic Mechanisms's Owner email

Gene Velasquez Director of Service and Solutions: I lead a team of professionals dedicated to providing our customers with timely, quality business hardware service and software solutions.

In the 30+ years that I have been in this business I have had the opportunity to work in many areas of the industry. I started all those years ago as a service technician working with customers and fixing equipment. With the experience gained there, I was asked to be the Corporate Trainer for our organization, as an authorized trainer for Canon, Konica Minolta, HP, and Lexmark I realized we have the very best products and that I have a love for training and supporting our team. Then my career took a different turn when I was asked to head up our growing solutions division as Director of Solutions. In a world where everything is connected giving our customers new types of solutions to solve their business needs is very rewarding. My most recent hat is the Director of Service. I am so lucky to get to work with these products alongside talented service and solutions individuals to support our wonderful customers.

Tyler Gobin - Director of Managed Print Services

Dave Barrows

Going into the family business is not for everybody. Many times, family members feel almost as if it is something they are forced to do, to continue the family legacy. In my case it was something that I wanted to do. I saw a great business with great employees, many of whom I have known since I was a child. I got my start in the service department. My initial duties were setting up and rebuilding equipment. As I moved along I started helping on installation of equipment and learned some basic networking techniques. I eventually transitioned to sales, where I currently am. In my current position, I handle our major accounts, state contract, inter-territorial deals, and help organize and coordinate our managed print services. In addition, I also provide any needed support to our sales team. Coming from both a service and sales background I bring a unique skill set and perspective to my position. My goal is to provide our sales team with all the support and tools they need to best serve our clients and the community.
