Orlando experienced 4.5% growth in tech sector last year, with a total impact of $12.5 billion on the local economy. In this growing technology market, it can be difficult to find or afford expert executive-level technology leadership. This is where hiring a fractional CTO can be a great strategy. If your company has experienced rapid growth, especially in a rapidly growing market like Orlando, this can lead to challenges with retention that affect culture, process, and the ability to execute.
As a Partner at TechCXO and a Fractional CTO serving the Orlando area, I have helped companies in the Central Florida region:
- Bridge the gap between the immediate need for tech leadership and the right permanent hire
- Optimize tech org structure to help achieve goals and weather aggressive growth
- Align technology and business strategy
- If a permanent full-time CTO is needed, assist in the recruiting efforts to help hire the right candidate
From Financial Services to Media/Entertainment to eCommerce and Product Development, from startups to mature enterprises, I enjoy helping companies navigate the changes brought on by technology evolution and growth. Also, I write The Fractional CTO blog to share experiences that have helped my clients succeed.
What’s It Like to Work With Me?
Kevin is a rare breed of CTO -- not just incredibly knowledgeable and strategic, but a collaborator. Our business team had full confidence that our voices were heard, and our requires were built into the solution. He also used these listening and consensus-building skills within the IT team itself. He successfully turned around a dysfunctional SDLC process and a culture of mistrust into one of clarity, dialog and teamwork. This yielded measurable results not only to our IT development efforts, but to larger strategic initiatives. Kevin is simply the best.
Michelle C. | SVP Strategy
Kevin is one of the most gifted leaders I've worked with. He is always focused on creating meaningful outcomes and tackling the most challenging problems with incredible "can-do" spirit and a sense of strength and composure under pressure. He has coached and developed countless rising stars -- bottom line, Kevin cares.
Amy R. | Strategic Advisor & Chief People Officer
Kevin was consistently thinking about appropriate directions the company should be moving in technically. His technical insight was without question exceptional. He is very much a team player and works for the good of the organization in all that he does.
Ross B. | President
Kevin and I first worked together when consulting companies were discovering that their clients wanted cross-discipline teams and he was one of the few who intuitively grasped that. He is still the best in the bunch. From healthcare to publishing to eCommerce, in the States and Europe, Kevin has grown offices, maintained and grown long-term client relationships, and balanced delivery teams to increase value for the client and the team.
Bill R. | VP User Experience
Kevin is an incredible talent and a person I respect immensely for his calm demeanor, entertaining style and incredible people and client management skills.
Noel H. | VP Global Services
Kevin is everything you want at the CTO level. For example, he helped with business and technical details around European Security & Privacy Laws, using emerging architectures for large-scale real-world clients. Endless wealth of knowledge and always ready to help.
Bill T. | Commerce Leader & Innovator
Seldom does one find a person who so artfully balances an in-depth knowledge of technology with a strong business acumen and understanding of/ability to manage people. Kevin is as comfortable designing an award winning system architecture as he is presenting to corporate execs.
Dave T. | President
