“Jeff Burgess’ career has spanned over 38 years in various segments of the computer industry. He founded Burgess Computer Decisions, Inc., (BCD) in 1999, as an IT reseller, building HP servers for Fortune 500 companies. In early 2008, a chance meeting sparked Burgess to begin transitioning the company to the video surveillance storage market as BCDVideo.
Now the industry leader in purpose-build video surveillance recording systems, BCDVideo has over 50,000 systems recording video surveillance in 52 countries, either as their own branded products or privately-labeled for some of the biggest names in the security industry. BCDVideo’s recording devices have been installed worldwide by the industry’s largest security integrators at airports, multi-government embassies, correctional facilities, universities, hospitals, casinos, stadiums, cruise lines, and retail chains. Many of the world’s most recognizable brands rely on BCDVideo recording devices to protect their environment.
BCDVideo was on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing companies in both 2013 and 2017. Additionally, in 2017, Inc. Magazine also named them among the country’s best workplaces, and The Channel Company’s CRN Magazine tabbed them on their Solution Provider 500 list. Burgess is also a member of Hewlett Packard Enterprise’ OEM Customer Advisory Board.
The company is forecasting $60 million in 2017 revenues, which represents twenty-five percent annual growth for the past three consecutive years. Burgess has been married for 32 years to Joanne, who he also met on a “chance meeting.” They have three children, two of whom work at the company.” - Underdog.NYC
