Carl Bootsma - Owner Heartland Computers

Carl BootsmaIn 1994 just one year out of high school the owner and founder of Heartland Computers, Carl Bootsma was changing the oil of his 1984 Chevy Cavalier on a hot July afternoon when over the radio he heard about a job fair at a fast growing tech company Gateway 2000. Dressed in a white t-shirt with some oil stains he hopped in the Cavalier and drove down to the cow spotted buildings in Sioux City, IA. With a down-to-earth charisma only found in the Midwest, Gateway hired Carl, oil stains and all!

Carl Bootsma excelled at Gateway being the only person in his training class to disassemble and then reassemble a working computer on his first attempt. Gateway provided ample training and hands on experience needed for his new career in information technology.

In 1995 with the help of family and friends at the young age of 20 Carl opened Heartland Computers in Sioux Center, IA. The company grew and provided service contract work for such manufactures as Gateway, Dell, HP, Compaq, along with major retailers Sears and Best Buy. Yes before there was the Geek Squad, Heartland provided Best Buy's™ on-site service!
