You can Trust Marvin Huffaker with your Critical Systems.
Marvin helps all types of businesses: Law Firms, Insurance Agencies, Manufacturing Companies, Banks and Credit Unions, and More!
Marvin believes in building personal relationships with customers, and the goal is to provide fantastic customer support on all projects large and small.
Marvin performs all work himself, nothing is outsourced. So you can be confident in the work completed. He will not take on any work that he is not fully qualified to perform.
You don’t have time to sit around waiting for things to happen. Marvin knows that maintenance windows don’t happen during normal business hours. This often means working late nights and weekends to minimize customer impact. Whatever it takes.
Technical people are notorious for passing the buck. While some consultants might walk away when something doesn’t go as planned, Marvin sticks with it until the job is done. Marvin takes full ownership and responsibility for technical problems, projects, or other tasks and takes care of it.
Marvin tries to occasionally step outside of the office and get some fresh air, food, water and other basic life essentials. But you can count on him to come back and finish the job.

My Personal Life
I moved to Arizona in 2001 with my wife Amy and two small kids, and started my consulting practice shortly thereafter. We built our first house in Gilbert, Arizona and currently live in Queen Creek. Prior to moving to Arizona, we lived in Grand Rapids, Michigan. My wife passed away in early 2015 after an extensive ordeal with Ovarian Cancer. My son Austin recently graduated High School and my daughter Jasmine will be a Senior and one of the top students in her class of 2016.
I enjoy taking the family on road trips, both on and off-highway. We find ourselves quite often heading off in no particular direction or destination, just to see what we can find. Our most recent trip was driving up the Oregon coast in the fall of 2014 in our RV.
I like to find off-road trails, and I have a 4×4 truck as well as a Polaris RZR 1000 Side-by-Side UTV. We’ll take it out and make a weekend of off-road action. Arizona has some great trails. Some of them are crazy insane and not for the faint of heart. One of my favorite treks is a back road trail from Lake Pleasant to Crown King, AZ.
I have a 2002 BMW 330Ci convertible that is my baby. I love driving fast and with the top down. It’s mostly a cooler temperature car because it gets too hot in the summer here. I also have a 1985 BMW 535i Project car that I am fixing up, and it will look really cool when finished. Additionally, the license plate I used to have on my Convertible is autographed by the Red Rocker, Sammy Hagar.
