Bomgar sets college campus tour

A Mississippi company is taking its product and its success story on the road over the next seven weeks, stopping at dozens of colleges and businesses to show off why it’s consistently ranked as one of the fastest-growing companies in the nation.

But the first college on the tour is one close to the company founder’s heart.

In 2003, Joel Bomgar was a student at Belhaven University, working in tech support to help pay for school. Now he is the CEO of Bomgar, a remote tech support company he founded that has thousands of clients in more than 60 countries.

The company employs nearly 225 people, most in its Ridgeland home office, Bomgar said. Other employees work from some of the company’s offices in six countries and 12 states.
