About John Kampas


John Kampas is the Founder & CEO of EMPIST, a full-service technology firm that offers managed IT, digital marketing, website, and development services to businesses around the world. John founded EMPIST (formerly Digerati Group) in 2000 in Chicago shortly after obtaining a degree in Management Information Systems from Loyola University Chicago.

In 2020, EMPIST was featured for the 9th straight time as one of Channel Futures’ top 501 Managed Service Providers (MSPs) in the world, coming in at #116. It was also recognized by CRN as one of the top 100 Cybersecurity firms in 2020 and a multi-year winner on the Inc. 500/5000 list as one of the fastest-growing privately-owned businesses in the US. For the first time, EMPIST was honored to receive a place on Expertise’s Top 20 Best Managed Service Providers in Chicago list. EMPIST’s industry-leading global services are delivered out of four offices across the United States and Europe.
