Birchmier honored with Vision Award
April 24, 2015
David Birchmier, MPA’s founder and CEO, accepted the Alumni Entrepreneur of the Year Award from Indian Hills College on Thursday, April 23, 2015 at the annual Vision Awards Ceremony. This award honors an Indian Hills graduate that is either operating their own business or was involved in an entrepreneurial project through their company.
At age fifteen, David Birchmier and his father built David’s first computer together in the basement. Fast-forward two years, MPA was born as a solution to helping friends and neighbors with their technology. What started as simply “fixing computers”, quickly grew to become the largest Creative Technology company in southeast Iowa by 2011, now offering Managed IT Services and Application Development. David believes in dreaming big and, under his guidance, MPA has rolled out a comprehensive Managed IT program and launched numerous commercial products, seeing great success nationally and internationally.
David graduated from Indian Hills in 2007, receiving an Associate of Arts and Sciences (AAS) degree, focusing on Information Technology, as well as an Associate of Arts (AA) degree with a focus on Business/Corporate Communications.
