Richard Randle Nominated as Los Angeles Business Journal CIO of the Year 2015

Richard serves as outsourced CIO (Chief Information Officer) to MBSG clients. He provides IT Strategy and IT support.

"Richard is the rare breed of IT consultant who speaks geek to his IT peer group, but also clearly communicates with Management -- costs, benefits, ROI and risks. He designs and deploys information technology that make good business sense".

Richard and the MBSG consulting team help clients evaluate IT strategy alternatives in-the-cloud and on-the-ground, including Office 365.

Among many strengths that influenced the LA Busines Journal to nominate Richard as  CIO of the year, Richard is particularly adept at achieving collaboration in tense situations where technical advisors present conflicting recommendations.

"Richard is outstanding at organizing experts with different IT specializations and defusing tensions. It is amazing to watch him move a group of experts beyond egos to a consensus path forward," said Kevin Bowe, CEO of MBSG.
