Brian Bonar is a former Scottish mechanics-based businessman and software developer who’s now mostly retired and spends his time in other endeavors. Bonar has put together advanced software designs and automated technology with accounting programs to build solutions for businesses looking to outsource operating costs. He’s also been an expert in ETF investments and making stock trades over the years. He recently reported very positive outlooks for his latest company, TRUCEPT Inc on PRNewswire.Brian Bonar’s professional career started in 1968 when he graduated from Strathclyde University and joined the IBM UK Ltd. procurement department. During that time he also attended Staffordshire University where he completed his master’s and later his doctorate. In 1985 he became Director of Software engineering for quality management systems at QMS Inc. He turned his attention to printing and copying technology in 1989 when he joined Rastek and Adaptec companies and became the Vice President of Sales and Marketing. During that time he also founded a company named Bezier Systems that developed a SCSI-based printer.
Bonar decided to take his experience in software and printing development to build a company that could deliver full support services in addition to manufacturing printers, and in 1995 that company was titled ITEC Imaging Technologies. In 2001 they partnered with SourceOne and the Solvis Group, and in 2004 changed their name to the Dalrada Financial Corporation. Bonar has served as Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer and CEO of this company. The Dalrada Financial Corporation is a professional employer organization (PEO) company that hires and manages the payroll and taxes for client company employees so that the company only has to worry about managing day-to-day activities. In addition to TRUCEPT, other companies started under the Dalrada Financial Corporation including Allegiant Professional Services and AMS Outsourcing.
Bonar also started restaurant investing not long ago after taking up an interest in local struggling San Diego County establishments and believed he could turn them into prosperous venues. He began having several pubs and corner cafes upgraded to upscale dining places, but he also wanted to bring in top quality cooks and chefs to manage them. He became great friends with Patrick Ponsaty, an award-winning cook whose won the Master Chef of France award. Bonar hired Ponsaty to manage Bellamy’s Bistro and later gave him a share of the ownership, and he’s also working with Ponsaty to build up the Ranch at Bandy Canyon into a hot tourist spot. While he’s not busy running TRUCEPT, Bonar writes columns for small publications and gives investment advice, or he might be out golfing or boating.
