Bev Johnson, founder and owner, received her Bachelor Degree in business management from Willamette University. During her undergraduate studies, Bev created her own support staff company, including typing students term papers. This was quite lucrative because there were a lot of students at Willamette that were unwilling to do their own typing and they were much more content paying someone else.
After college, Bev worked in a number of office settings developing her skill in cutting waste and inefficiency in the office. She received her first office manager position with Renco, a high-tech start-up that grew from 15 people to over 59 employees in three years. Her next position was with office coordinator for Carter Technology. During her time there, the staff grew from 30 people to 89 employee in three years. Her last position before starting Office Space Solutions was with Steward Consulting. This company grew from 45 employee to over 258 staff members in four years.
Toward the end of her tenure with Steward Consulting she was getting a bit restless. She was looking for a new challenge, something she could do all on her own. One day the idea dawned on her that she could leverage her knowledge of office efficiency into a new business.
