Adriaan Brits



James Moak, founder, and president of Gulf South Technology Solutions has been appointed as the Board Chair for The Livingston Parish Chamber of Commerce. 

We recently had the chance to sit down with him and discuss his recent appointment, his experience in the technology industry, and how he plans to help build the local community.

A Personal Journey of Professional Growth

Moak has been in the technology industry for over two decades, and here’s what he had to say when asked about his recent appointment:

“I am honored to serve as board chair; it’s a great personal accomplishment that I owe much to my participation in the chamber and its Leadership Livingston Program. Through these programs, I was able to make meaningful connections and gain valuable insights that have helped me grow both personally and professionally.”

His involvement with the chamber has already profoundly impacted Moak’s professional growth and the success of Gulf South Technology Solutions.

Through the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program, he gained valuable insight from seasoned entrepreneurs helping him continue his successful journey.

“The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program opened my eyes to new business practices and strategies that I could leverage. Through this program, I was able to learn from some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country, it really helped me take Gulf South Technology Solutions to the next level.”

Helping Build a Thriving Community

Moak’s appointment to the chamber’s board comes during a time when Livingston Parish is growing rapidly, and he believes that his experience in technology can help build a thriving local community.

“I believe technology plays an important role in modernizing our economy, building stronger businesses, and creating new employment opportunities for our citizens. I am looking forward to working with the chamber and other members of the board to create initiatives that will help us achieve these goals and contribute to a thriving community.”

Using His Success To Help Others

Moak is passionate about giving back to his local community, which has helped him grow professionally. He believes in investing time and resources into causes that benefit the citizens who live there and those who are part of the local business community.


“We have a responsibility to invest in our communities and make sure they are continually improving. We need to be a part of that change, so we can all benefit from it. That is why I am passionate about supporting the Livingston Parish Chamber of Commerce and its mission to improve our local economy and culture.”

As Board Chair of the Livingston Parish Chamber of Commerce, Moak hopes to create meaningful initiatives that will help build a stronger and more vibrant local community. He is certain that his experience in technology and dedication to giving back can help make this a reality.

“I believe we all have the power to make a real difference, and I am determined to use my position at the chamber and the resources of Gulf South Technology Solutions to help build a thriving community in Livingston Parish.”

What Makes Gulf South Technology Solutions Tick?

Gulf South Technology Solutions is a single solution for IT & cybersecurity needs for businesses, schools, and government entities alike – a trusted resource among network administrators and internal IT staff for co-managing such needs.

The company culture that Moak speaks so proudly of creates a productive workplace and one where employees can have fun at work.

He explains: “Our workplace features a fully-stocked kitchen, XBox video game systems, ping pong tables and even a golf simulator creating an environment that is both productive yet fun for employees.” No wonder GSS continues to make waves across America, with twice being named on Inc’s 5000 list citing rapid revenue growth rate!

Making An Impact On Our Local Community Businesses

We asked James what he hopes to achieve during his time leading The Livingston Parish Chamber Of Commerce board:

“I plan on bringing positive energy while making sure I can make an impact on our local community businesses.”

It looks like James’ success story could potentially inspire many more small business owners battling obstacles faced due to poor mentorship or lack of knowledge about resources available within their community.

“There seems to be a lack of resources at times, but it’s great that I’m able to bring something to the table with my knowledge and expertise. We want to help businesses succeed and grow,” he concluded.

His appointment could very well be looked upon if not as a sign, then perhaps hope for inspiring others who’d be looking up to understand what it takes to become successful entrepreneurs today!
