Who We Are
M&T Solutions Technology, Office, and Safety Supplies was born out of founders Eric Magruder and Curtis Tolson’s desire to provide customers with all the products they need to run their businesses and first-class customer service. Get to know Eric and Curtis more on this page!
- Holds a B.S. in Information Technology
- Spent the majority of his career working for the United States government, including time as a federal contractor guarding classified construction sites and his current role as a security manager for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services
- Spent five years in the Marines, serving as a military policeman and U.S. Embassy Marine guard in locations across Africa, Central America, South America, and more.
Eric’s entrepreneurial spirit has always been present throughout his career. Still, the opportunity to start his own business didn’t arise until the COVID-19 pandemic sparked a conversation between himself and Curtis about the importance of e-commerce to the future business landscape. M&T has allowed Eric’s vision for a customer-focused, philanthropy-driven business to come to life.
While not working at M&T, Eric enjoys exercising, hunting, traveling with his family, attending his daughter’s activities, and trading and investing in the stock market.
- Began his career in the construction industry after receiving heavy equipment operator training from State Technical College of Missouri in Linn, MO
- Worked on a variety of projects across the state as VP of Operations for I & I Works Inc., including the largest environmental cleanup project in United States history in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina
- Started CCC & Lawn Care LLC, a commercial cleaning and lawn service provider he continues to run with his sons
- Runs a real estate investment company and consults for Harris Hauling and Supplies LLC
Curtis views M&T as the natural progression of his career, getting to serve customers, contribute to charities, and work alongside Eric, who he considers the little brother he never had.
Outside of M&T, Curtis is a proud member of the Masonic Order, enjoys spending time with his family, and listening to podcasts and books on Audible.
