Michael Paul

After graduating from UCLA and gaining valuable experience in the financial services industry while at Northwestern Mutual for nearly 3 years, Michael co-founded Swift Chip in 2009 with Ken May. Michael’s intent was to combine his passion for helping people with the IT expertise of his business partner, Ken May, and turn IT into a business asset, rather than the burden it’s often thought of. This merging of philosophies and understanding that Swift Chip is essentially a customer service company expected to deliver reliable service in an industry plagued by unreliable service, is how Swift Chip has thrived and developed the reputation for taking the “SH” out of IT!

Primarily, Michael’s role is to develop business, establish partnerships in the community, and to cultivate a culture where Swift Chip’s people can learn and excel, which makes for satisfied clients. He happens to be fortunate to work with a capable team of IT experts who share a customer-centric mindset and a passion for technology. Together, they’ve grown Swift Chip from a company working out of a small apartment in Los Angeles to a company with offices in Santa Monica and Ventura which has served 1,000+ SMBs in those communities . Ultimately, Swift Chip’s clients stick with them because clients can count on Swift Chip’s expertise and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty whenever they’re needed.

When Michael isn’t taking the “SH” out of IT, he enjoys spending time with his large family and friends, live music, supporting the arts, breaking a sweat, collecting stamps in his passport, impatiently waiting for Dodgers and Lakers’ championships, promoting literacy as a board member for Reading Opens Minds, and perfecting the art of napping on weekends.


Swift Chip provides managed IT and cybersecurity services for a wide variety of companies in fields with stringent privacy and compliance requirements.

The team at Swift Chip is responsive, knowledgeable, and super kind! Anytime I have an issue, they are quick to contact me back. Technology issues can be very overwhelming for a business owner, so having them on my team is super helpful to keeping my business operating smoothly!

Very knowledgeable and professional staff that responded quickly, understood what I needed and resolved the issue economically. I had a very specific technical issue with an integration. Although AJ did not have specific knowledge of this very esoteric software, he managed to figure it out within minutes as we were discussing the problem. Very impressed. Thanks Swift Chip.

Ken May is a very personable and responsive business owner, who is always ready to assist with computer and mobile issues. Swift Chip has the knowledge and know-how to get the job done, no matter how big or small.
