Face of IT Service
The Computer Hut, LLC
Chris Bates, CEO
The Computer Hut was founded in 1992 in Arkansas, and after nearly 30 years of serving Arkansans and solving technological issues, the company has proven that its core value is service excellence.
Led by CEO Chris Bates, The Computer Hut has deep capabilities in handling the cyber and data security challenges all companies face, with a special emphasis on the needs of health care organizations in maintaining HIPAA compliance. Headquartered in Little Rock, The Computer Hut has more than 35 IT professionals with offices across the Natural State.
In 2002, The Computer Hut got its first big break when Metropolitan National Bank outsourced its IT to the small tech company. Metropolitan National Bank was The Computer Hut’s largest client until the bank was acquired by Simmons. The Computer Hut has been working at full steam ever since, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the importance of technology services and working from home.
Bates is a graduate of the University of Central Arkansas with a BBA in Computer Information Systems. Bates also is a loving husband and proud father of two boys and a dog.
With constantly evolving technology and emerging security threats, it is essential for technologists to continually learn or get left behind.
