Alberto Dosal Shifts 30yearold Doralbased Compuquip From Former Leasing Role To New Focus On Managed Services
Written by Miami Today on July 29, 2010
Compuquip CEO Alberto Dosal wants to help you focus on the business of growing your business.
During the past 30 years he and his family have turned the Doral-based firm from a technology equipment-leasing outfit to one that installs networks, provides 24/7 network security and helps companies outsource information technology through its managed IT services department.
And though security and sale of hardware "is the bulk" of Compuquip’s business, Mr. Dosal said the managed services department has grown 80% over the past three years.
He’s also beginning the long-term of job of passing leadership to his sons.
"What I always tell my sons is I want to get away more and more and more [from the] day-to-day operational aspect of the business, and that’ll happen over the next, let’s say, five years," Mr. Dosal said. "Eventually I will become chairman of the board and they will be co-CEOs."
Additionally, he holds key roles at the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, heading its Domestic Business Group, which oversees 12 committees, and sitting on the executive committee.
When he’s not running day-to-day operations of Compuquip or promoting collaboration amongst the chamber’s thousands of members, he’s looking forward to deep-sea fishing aboard a 54-foot vintage Bertram Yacht he’s in the midst of restoring.
Mr. Dosal was interviewed in Compuquip’s headquarters by Miami Today staff writer Zachary S. Fagenson. To read this profile article in its entirety, subscribe to Miami Today’s E-paper.
