IT strategy firm Bridgepointe Technologies has made investments in two more sales agents.
Josh Mitchell and Rick Gerzik, long-time contractors with Bridgepointe, have accepted the title of “partner” with the San Mateo, California-based company. As a result, both have received equity in Bridgepointe.

Seven months have passed since Bridgepointe announced a $100-plus million investment from Charlesbank Capital Partners. Bridgepointe, which functions both as a technology services distributor and a direct selling advisory firm, has turned some of that money into investments in its top-performing sales agents. Mitchell’s appointment, announced this week, brings the total to 11.
Mitchell joined Bridgepointe as an IT strategist in 2003 after working in a variety of sales positions, including one at Learn IT. Like many Bridgepointe agents, he sold exclusively through Bridgepointe and used the Bridgepointe brand. However, he went on to found his own brand, which used other TSDs for supplier contracts and back office support.
But now Mitchell is returning to Bridgepointe.
“I got my start at Bridgepointe, so returning now as a partner feels right, especially as the company is in growth mode,” Mitchell said. “In recent years I’ve considered multiple opportunities, but what Bridgepointe brought to the table really stood out as it was a true win-win.”

Bridgepointe co-founder Brian Miller called Mitchell a founding member.
“It feels like a homecoming to have Josh join us for this next phase of our growth,” Miller said. It’s a testament to the value of what we’re building — a unique partnership of the most accomplished IT strategists and consultants in the industry who are laser-focused on helping tech leaders deliver real business outcomes.”
Kerzic Gets the Nod
Earlier this month, Bridgepointe announced an investment in Rick Gerzik. He started partnering with Bridgepointe more than three years ago. He uses the Jeryco Inc. brand.
His efforts pursuing enterprise customers have established a top performer at the company, Bridgepointe executives said.
“We’re thrilled to be rewarding him for his contributions by making Rick a partner,” Bridgepointe co-founder Scott Evars said. “Our vision for growth is focused on ensuring the best possible outcomes for our strategists. We’re not acquiring firms but instead investing in our mutual success.”

Kerzic said all parties involved with Bridgepointe will see improved financial outcomes as a result of it prioritizing the expansion of its team and tools.
“Being a part of Bridgepointe’s growth has been one of the highlights of my career,” Kerzic said. “As a partner, I’m happy to be building on our existing relationship and making an even greater contribution to the firm’s success.”
Bridgepointe bills itself as an IT strategy firm that targets enterprise customers.
