Hi, I’m Chris McManus, the founder and CEO of PeggNet Computers. I am married to Alice (The Honorable Alice Christine Emma Herbert) and we have 3 children, James, Jeremy and Jennifer (yes, the 3 “J’s” were coincidental).
I have had the pleasure of being the “Teacher Of The Year” in Florham Park and also in Mendham Borough, the Director of Elks Camp Moore (A Camp for Special Children) for 20 Years, Special Olympics “Coach of the Year”, ARC “Volunteer of the year” and the Scoutmaster for troop 409 Parsippany Special Needs Scout Troop. I am one of 10 Children! My father was self-employed for most of his life and of his 10 children 8 of them are self-employed or have a spouse that is self-employed. My father was my role model and I run PeggNet Computers the way he ran his business, with honesty and integrity.
I started PeggNet in 1995 as McManus Consulting and created PeggNet LLC in 2002. As a Special Education Teacher in the Mendham Borough Schools, I discovered the importance of computers in the classroom very early in the technology game. In 1988 I purchased a gaggle of broken computers, brought them into my classroom and scavenged parts to build 5 working computers for my classroom. Other than one school computer lab, mine was the only classroom with a bank of computers. In addition to the excitement of my students about working on computers, it truly sparked my interest in technology in education. I have been a classroom teacher, a Technology Coordinator and Technology Consultant for the Mendham Borough Schools, Mendham Township Schools and the Chester Schools.

Hi, I’m Margie and my role is to develop and maintain PeggNet’s internal processes and procedures to make life a little easier for our employees and clients. I’m also in charge of developing new and improved marketing material, like this new and improved website you’re looking at right now. And finally, I also develop, lead, and execute our sourcing strategies with our various manufactures and distributors. I handle the purchasing, procurement, and negotiations to ensure we are able to provide you with the best prices available!
In my spare time I’m a part time fitness instructor and I enjoy spending time with my dog, Niko. I also love to travel, especially to warm locations such as Brisbane, Australia, where I previously worked for a short time.
