Karl Springer is a Texas native, having spent his formative years in Fort Worth and Richardson. Following high school, Karl pursued his higher education at Texas A&M, where he earned a BBS focused in finance. Following graduation, Karl joined a highly successful accounting practice, Middleton, Burns & Davis, PC (MB&D). Karl and his team spent the ensuing years providing industry-leading accounting service and financial leadership.
Not long after joining MB&D, it became clear that to properly service the long and growing list of clients, the firm would need to build new efficiencies into their old processes. Soon the firm had its own internal information network, making operations more efficient, better organized and ultimately more profitable. After witnessing such gains in efficiency and productivity, clients began to contract with the firm to install similar information networks in their own home offices. Within a few years, MB&D became one of the very first in the country to offer “outsourced network administration” services, now known as “managed services.” When that happened, Sagiss was born.
It’s 25 years later and Karl remains heavily involved with the daily operations at Sagiss, providing leadership and strategic direction for the company. At the industry level, Karl has been an active thought leader and advocate, serving on various boards and audit committees. He is a current Advisory Board Member of the MSPAlliance, the world’s largest industry association (and certification body) for cloud computing and managed service professionals.
Outside of Sagiss, Karl is an avid golfer and has been actively involved in his local community for years coaching women's softball.
