Vanguard Founder Matthew Adkins was born with the heart of a teacher, a love of technology, and a desire to serve. In 2002, he left $3 billion national healthcare provider HCR ManorCare to start his own technology deployment firm. In 2003, Matthew merged his company with three others to form Toledo-based Vanguard Technologies, the region's leader in bank and national chain deployment services. The new company worked on deployments involving over 40,000 PCs for banks, Dell, Gateway, HP, Chrysler, and numerous national retailers, as well as smaller businesses contracting with national and local providers. While working with these local small businesses, Matthew realized how underserved they were by other providers and made it his mission to eliminate technological incompetence and provide competent, secure, technology services that empower businesses to thrive.

In 2007 Matthew acquired full ownership of Vanguard and his wife Kristy joined the team. He gradually turned the focus of the company toward helping those Northwest Ohio small businesses that had such need.  With the introduction in 2010 of V-Care Managed Technology Solutions the transition was complete.
