WHAT IS CAVU?
CAVU is a slang term that pilots use to describe anything that is highly desirable.
CAVU Networks founder and private pilot John Benjamin chose the name in honor of his passion for flight and a desire to bring a CAVU day into the office. The name also speaks to the exceptional level of service.
CAVU can get you above the clouds and even demystify that technical cloud.
“Flying mixes feelings of freedom and accomplishment with adventure. It requires precision skills and expertise and I like the mix of intuition and the critical-decision making required,”
- John Benjamin, Founder
John grew up in Manhattan in New York City. He always had a knack for technology and enjoyed fixing things. He also enjoyed helping people.
He received his BA in Computer Science from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana.
In 1991, he moved to Seattle and got a job at Microsoft in sales, marketing, and technology solutions. He valued traditional business ethics. He saw clients as individuals and liked the challenges of solving their unique problems.
BENJAMIN CONSULTING (PRE-CAVU)
John eventually left the corporate world behind him for a solo adventure. He tested the waters with a newspaper ad for a then one-man operation called Benjamin Consulting.
The ad included the line, I measure my success one client at a time and I look forward to meeting you.
This measure of success remains true with every client at CAVU today.
CAVU WHERE IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU
John’s way of doing business was well received and Benjamin Consulting quickly grew solely on word-of-mouth referrals into a team of highly trained professionals.
In 2004, CAVU Networks was born into the Bainbridge Island community. An event that could only be upstaged by the birth of his fraternal twin boys, Jake and Caleb.
“A lot of clients are also friends and I enjoy being able to see customers at my kid’s school and outside of the office,” - John Benjamin, Founder
Today, John loves operating a business with a staff that sincerely cares about their clients and doing an excellent job.
