Upon arriving in Pensacola in 1998, Tim started New Vision Computers with nothing more than a credit card and an unparalleled ambition. After what could be considered borderline harassment of a few key contacts in the area, Tim was awarded with several large Government contracts that would ultimately launch New Vision Computers to the multi-location retail chain it became. All the while Tim’s addiction to entrepreneurial ventures kept him focused on the trends and future of the I.T. industry. In 2006 Tim began planning for a brand new I.T. company, one that would be worlds ahead of the already successful computer chain he had created.

After applying many years of I.T. industry experience, as well as nearly two years of strenuous development and testing, Tim launched Digital Boardwalk, Inc. in 2009. The company quickly rose to its success and has received several awards for outstanding customer service, superior response times, and philanthropic contributions. Following the instant success of Digital Boardwalk, Tim sold New Vision Computers in 2010 so he could devote his efforts entirely to the new business.

Tim married his rock, Kathleen Shoop, in 2004. He soon decided to start his family at the same time Digital Boardwalk began its successful rise. In 2010 Tim’s son Caleb was introduced to the world, followed by his daughter Victoria in 2012. Tim is also the proud parent of two dogs.

Over the years Tim has donated countless resources to many of the area’s non-profit organizations including Gulf Coast Kid’s House, ARC Gateway, Manna Food Pantries, and the Waterfront Mission. Tim is also heavily involved in the Pensacola community through volunteer work and Chamber events.

In his free time, Tim is at home with his wife and children who keep him very busy while away from work. On occasion Tim also enjoys playing a video game or two.

Following in the footsteps of his parents, both of whom obtained their MBAs, Brian switched his field of study to management information systems and sought out a career in technology. Armed with his natural knack for technology and business, Brian found employment with Tim Shoop as a computer technician and service manager at New Vision Computers.

At this time, Tim was in the very-first stages of developing a brand-new I.T. company based upon the Managed I.T. Services model. Eager to ride this wave of change, Brian approached Tim and asked for the opportunity to help him build the new company. After 18-months of long hours, rigorous research and development, and just enough income to keep the lights on, Tim and Brian launched Digital Boardwalk, Inc.

In 2014, Brian met the love of his life, Shannon, and they later married in 2018. Brian and Shannon look forward to starting a family in the near future. In his free time, Brian is an avid mountain biker. Brian also enjoys woodworking, electrical work, and any opportunity to work with his hands and build something.
