Goran Donev of Safe Haven IT

Goran Donev has been dealing with computers since he was sixteen. Back then he was building his own computers and helping friends fix theirs. He went on to work in corporate IT departments and saw that something was lacking.

There was an absence of quality IT providers who truly understood the needs of small businesses. So he started Safe Haven IT where today, he helps the small business owner with remote management and monitoring, consulting services and installation.

Goran says his goal is to become the “trusted advisor” to as many small business owners as possible.
