People collaborating



Organizations move forward when the right resources work cohesively together.

Large organizations employ IT Executives known as CIO’s who, in collaboration with the Company, set and lead the technology strategy. CIO’s are also the critical interface between IT Operations and the needs of the Company.

It is time that small and medium sized organizations have easy access to the same CIO resources on their team. To improve future success, they need to move business forward with technology as well.

ourCIO is a technology advisory, strategy and leadership firm for organizations seeking experience, trust and independence. We're here to be your CIO.

Our IT Advisors and Leaders have served in executive, leadership and advisory positions for highly respected businesses across varying industries. We are strong relationship builders. We see things holistically. We understand the needs of the organization and, as such, are equipped to effectively drive technology forward in a meaningful direction.

We had ourCIO come to us at a time when we really needed their expertise. Their professionalism and customer service are top notch! It's such a pleasure working with Kent Smith. His knowledge, attention to detail and all around response time has been nothing but extraordinary. I would highly recommend ourCIO to any organization.

Our company engaged ourCIO to perform a business technology assessment to look at our current IT capabilities and to plan what we need for the future. Kent Smith did a thorough job interviewing key stakeholders, reviewing systems and liaising with service providers. He delivered a thorough report on our capabilities and provided an actionable roadmap we can use to improve going forward, which will set us up for future success. We subsequently engaged Kent to assist with a couple of additional projects and received the same high quality service. Having access to a highly skilled and knowledgeable IT executive on an as needed basis has been extremely valuable for our company and I recommend other companies engage ourCIO for their IT strategy needs.
