CEO and Co-Founder

Josh Peterson is the co-founder Bering McKinley, a consulting firm for MSPs and IT solution providers. 

Josh has been in the IT Solution Provider arena for the last 15 years. First as an owner, then as a management consultant with Taylor Business Group for 8 years, and now as founder of Bering McKinley.  Josh’s track record of developing management solutions for 100s of MSPs, VARs, and integrators around the world has afforded him the opportunity to see companies of all sizes enjoy phenomenal growth in profitability and in top line revenue.

Additionally Josh is a maniac for strong financial accounting practices being followed at business of all sizes. Josh believes, as Peter Drucker did, “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.” Josh has a deep respect for anyone who has the nerve to start their own business but also believes that only gets you so far.  Sooner or later you have to take accountability for your business and perform at extraordinary levels to enjoy the lifestyle you deserve.

In his free time, Josh enjoys boxing, kayaking, and the occasional overland expedition to remote areas such as the Arctic Ocean and the tea estates of Kerala, India. Josh credits his MBA from Canisius in Buffalo, NY and his undergraduate degree in education for providing the foundation to his consulting style.  Many of his philosophies and thoughts on the IT industry can be found on his blog, Bering McKinley’s website can be found at
