Hello! Welcome to Prodigy IT Solutions, or the PITS Network, as we like to call it!
Prodigy IT Solutions was founded by Mike “King” Ward. King, as his friends call him, is a hard-working, fun-loving, 36-year-old, former ASE and General Motors Master Certified Automotive Technician. He earned his nickname early-on, at just 18-years-old, and heavily involved in street and track racing circuits. At the time, Mike was torn between his street racing crew, and a group of older, rockabilly-loving, a 1 percenter, 50’s-style custom car club, the Hellcats. Driving a rather quick 2000 Camaro Z-28, Mike was dubbed “King of the Hill” by Hellcat President Anthony Bastio. King eventually brought his love of high horsepower, and coupled it with the beauty of classic, custom, heavily modified antique vehicles when he purchased his first 1953 Oldsmobile Super 88, 2-door Holiday Hardtop. The first year for a 12-volt system in an Oldsmobile built with a Rocket 303 engine!
About 15 years ago, King was forced into a medical retirement from the automotive industry due to complications from juvenile diabetes. Throughout King’s automotive career he always excelled in concerns that were electronic in nature. On top of going fast, he specialized in hard-to-diagnose electrical issues, exotic engine swaps, custom wiring harnesses, and late-model electronic fuel injection tuning.
When King went into retirement, he quickly found himself involved in advocacy and political activism relating to his medical condition. In just his mid-twenties, a new husband and an expecting father, he knew he had to do something that would continue to provide an honest living for him and his family. King’s activism led him online, where he began networking with others who were producing videos and podcasts. He then began taking part in producing his own content. King’s mechanical abilities, coupled with his deep understanding of electronics and computer circuitry allowed for a new, somewhat suppressed passion to emerge.
Growing up, Mike’s dad always told him “Mike, I don’t care what you decide to do with your life, so long as you’re doing something you enjoy. When you enjoy it, you’re getting paid to do what you love. When you hate it, it becomes a job to get up and go to work!” and King has kept that with him his entire life. King takes pride in finding problems and fixing them right, the first time! It is precisely this mindset that has propelled King in various business ventures throughout his life.
As you can already tell, King is certainly no stranger to difficulty. In fact, it’s when things are most difficult that King finds himself in his groove! When the heat is on and everything is crumbling, King is pulling all the tricks he’s mastered, turning seconds in hours, making sure the goal is met or beaten!
Today, King is proud to have partnered with many of the leading experts and developers in and around Information Technology, giving him an insurmountable advantage in providing you with the highest quality, most cost-effective solutions, regardless of your IT needs!
