Leadership Team

Our team members have been CTOs, CIOs, and business leaders. But each of us has also been an entrepreneur, and that is where our heart is. We get excited about ideas and the people who make ideas happen. We know that you need the expertise of a CTO and/or a CIO to help frame and implement your vision, so we have combined our technological expertise, creating seasoned teams of senior executives who can meet your technology needs.
