Our IT consultants are both experienced and certified. We insist on maintaining a close relationship with our clients, and specialize in long-term relationships, not quick high-profit hits. Many IT companies, in their haste to impress with the latest-and-greatest, forget to ask the most important question: “What is best for our customer?” You can rest assured that you will receive the best possible advice, based on your needs, not ours.
Fred started the company in 1989. After gaining experience at a small network consulting firm and five years at a Fortune 500 company, he was eager to get out on his own. He met Tom a few years later, and was immediately impressed with his work ethic and devotion to customer service. His education and work experience, made him the perfect fit and two years later, Tom achieved full partner status.

Fred was born and raised in Pennsylvania but is a country boy at heart! He spent many summers as a boy in Mississippi where his parents had been cotton farmers before his father got a job in Baltimore wiring helicopters at Boeing.
Fred’s education was mostly self-taught and hands on, first at a small networking and consulting firm and then at a Fortune 500 company. In 1989 Fred started Affordable Computer Services, which evolved into C&S Computer Consulting in 2004 after partnering with Tom.
Fred lives in Cecil County, Maryland with his wife Lexi, daughter Maggie, and step-daughter Rosie. His two older daughters, Jane and Krystal, have already fled the nest! When he has free time, Fred enjoys hiking with his two Siberian Huskies, spending time with family, and riding his Harley Davidson.
Tom was born in Charleston West Virginia, but moved to Delaware in 1985. He graduated from Delcastle Technical High School and then joined the United States Marine Corps. Tom served from 1989 to 2006 as an Infantryman with the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Marines, and was awarded a Combat Action, Meritorious Unit Citation and multiple other awards. He participated in Jungle, Desert and Mountain Warfare training and spent 3 ½ years deployed abroad.

Following his enlistment, Tom enrolled at Delaware Technical and Community College and later attended the University of Delaware.
Tom worked at JP Morgan on helpdesk/desktop team before forming C&S Computer consulting in July of 2004. Tom and his wife, Jesse, of 17 years reside in Middletown Delaware with their two children.
