Founder & CEO
Brandon Baker is the Founder & CEO of ignite Technology, LLC. After seven years working his way up from entry level to senior management with Comcast Business Solutions, ignite Founder and CEO, Brandon Baker knows the intricacies of data and communication networking. Tired of hearing and seeing the frustration of businesses who had submitted to carriers and solutions that not only did not meet their needs but, cost them profits, Brandon wanted to see a change for the better.
Through carefully built, strategic partnerships with some the world’s leading communication providers, Brandon began connecting the puzzle pieces of a new kind of company and service. Through Brandon’s vision, ignite Technology, LLC was born.
