About Us

NetEffect opened its doors as uptimeLV in 2001 with the goal to bring Fortune 500 level IT expertise and exceptional customer experience to the small and medium-sized business market in Las Vegas.

Over the years, NetEffect has acquired two IT firms to become one of the largest and most respected firms supporting the SMB market in Las Vegas. NetEffect has since attracted the best and brightest IT professionals to support our customers.

With live technical support available 24/7, 365 days per year, NetEffect provides expertise in Solution Design, Project Management, Implementation, Monitoring & Remediation and Support. Along with a full array of services, NetEffect provides and supports IT hardware and software, network equipment, security products, VoIP systems, and IP video security systems. NetEffect holds and authorization from the Nevada Gaming Commission to manage and support board-regulated hardware and software systems.

David B. Rounds is a Las Vegas native and attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.  With a significant history in the IT industry, his career in IT started effectively with his first company, uptimeLV, which he founded in 2001.  As the CEO, he developed a vision and foresight, which has led him to be one of the leaders in the Managed Service Provider (MSP) IT industry. He currently serves as an advisor for Insperity MSP Advisory Council, as well as The Pax8 Peer Group Advisors for a cloud software distribution company.  He is also a member of The Gentleman’s League, a non-profit organization of Southern Nevada business leaders committed to assisting other local non-profits in their fundraising endeavors.

David has since merged with and subsequently acquired two other MSPs in Las Vegas.  The most recent phase of his career and success came in 2014 as he merged with NetEffect Networks, another growing MSP in the Las Vegas market. With this merger, David was able to advance his commitment by providing not only a quality service but also furthering the NetEffect commitment to Small and Medium Business by providing a vCIO expertise that is typically not available to the smaller business community. This vCIO offering would not be possible if it were not for his extensive expertise.

David has exhibited a tireless commitment to the IT industry.  For his vision and contribution, David has received recognition and awards by many organizations as a business leader. David recognizes the speed at which the industry is growing and reshaping itself.  This reshaping is why David and NetEffect remain committed to being at the forefront of IT business innovation.

David and his wife and Partner, Shelly, have three children. Two of which are currently in college while the oldest graduated from the University of Washington.  When he is not working, David enjoys camping and scuba diving as well as giving back to the Las Vegas Community.
