In 2012, Matt launched Tazergy with two employees, Bill Burkhart and Heather Waring (Tansy), who remain integral members of the family from day one to today.
According to Heather, Matt’s job offer was like no other – “I don’t know what I can pay you, I don’t know exactly what we are going to do, but I can tell you that we will have a lot of fun!” The rest is history.
What in the world is a Tazergy? Matt knew he wanted to convey synergy, but in a separate conversation with family members, his wife Alysia learned that Matt was a bit of a Tasmanian Devil as a child. A creative spark put the two together and created Tazergy.
Did you know that ITaaZ is a play on words? It’s our variation of “TaZergy” and “IT as a Service.”
136! That’s how many years of technology and senior living expertise Tazergy employees have.
Known for his signature bow ties, Matt has 23 of these tie alternatives. In case you didn’t notice, Matt also wears a Hawaiian shirt every Friday, perhaps to commemorate Happy Half Hour which is a highlight of each week.
Yes, there are two Haywoods working at Tazergy. Matt and Alysia have been happily married for 16 years and are raising two budding entrepreneurs.
Three employees are reunited after working together at another firm. The leading ladies – Alysia Haywood, Heather Waring (Tansy), and Chelsea McKee – are known to run the show at Tazergy. Girl Power!
Tazergy’s first office space 10 years ago was actually two spots in a “cube farm” in another company’s building, way outside the metropolitan area of Atlanta. Today they call Woodstock, Georgia home but also have embraced a life/work balance with many hybrid and virtual options.
Two cherished clients are Formation Development Group and Winter Island Yacht Yard, both date back to 2012 and demonstrate Tazergy’s commitment to forming long-standing relationships.
