#114 Arlin Sorensen: The Godfather of MSP| Joey Pinz Discipline Conversations


Arlin Sorensen has been involved in the IT world for over 35 years as the founder of Sorensen’s Computer Connection in 1985 and then through M&A to become a partner and CEO of Heartland Technology Solutions in 2003. He served clients from seven offices across five Midwestern states.

He founded HTS Ag in 1995 to meet the needs for technology for growers in production agriculture. That business has expanded today to include not only GPS-based technologies for farmers, but grain bin management systems, drones and UAV technologies, and other things that enable farmers to feed the world. It continues to operate from our offices on the farm.

He also served as founder and CEO of the Heartland Tech Groups in 2000 which are peer mentoring groups for IT company business leaders.

In 2010, he founded Heartland Leadership Group which provided consulting services to small businesses and vendors. He was focused on consulting, coaching, and content targeted at helping create effective leaders and moving people to achieve their personal potential. This team worked worldwide in an effort to serve our clients with the tools and skills that help them achieve their goals and build leadership in their organizations. It became part of HTG Peer Groups in 2012.
