Thane Hayhurst

Thane Hayhurst owns and operates Kiwi Computer Services and iTalent Consulting Group, both in Dallas.  Kiwi Computer is a traditional do-it-all computer repair company that Thane has operated in Dallas since 1992.  Thane opened iTalent Consulting, which offers IT outsourcing services to many prominent local businesses.  iTalent sends employees on assignments (some lasting for many months) to clients’ businesses where the consultant works to implement on-site computer and IT solutions.  Both of Thane’s businesses are impacted by the new law because Thane and his employees are not licensed private investigators.  Thane is worried the government will decide he can no longer offer many of the services he currently provides to his clients.
