Mark earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Engineering from the Milwaukee School of Engineering and is currently enrolled at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business Executive MBA Program. As a 13 year veteran of the United States Army, he served in a wide variety of assignments deploying Communications and IT solutions in the world’s toughest environments. During his final assignment, he earned his Security+, Network+ and A+ certifications while serving as the senior communications officer in command of more than 500 soldiers on deployment to Afghanistan. He also served as the leader of a satellite communications platoon on deployment to Iraq. Most recently, Mark spent several years as an international sales manager for a technology company in the iron and steel industry where he managed several projects and earned his Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. Mark is passionate about helping people and serving the community, so it was natural for him to launch CMIT Solutions of Southwest Charlotte, which arms local businesses with a tactical advantage by reducing IT risks and threats.
Ryan earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemical Engineering from Virginia Tech. Before co-founding CMIT Solutions of Southwest Charlotte, Ryan held a variety of different Engineering Project Management, Technical Support, and Sales job roles in the Polymer, Nuclear, and Steel industries. His latest role relocated him to Shanghai, China to lead a small subsidiary business focused on sales and procurement in the East Asian market. Throughout his career, Ryan has earned the Professional Engineer (PE) and PMP certifications. This breadth of knowledge and experience in technical project management, complex problem solving, and leadership makes Ryan a great match for Mark’s technology expertise and vision to help CMIT clients de-complicate the ever-changing IT landscape and make technology work for (not against) their businesses.
