Why a Fractional Executive?
Working with fractional executive leadership is becoming more and more popular due to some distinct advantages over hiring a full-time resource:
- Faster to get started with a fractional exec
- Less expensive than an equivalent FTE
- Flexible engagements for any budget
I’ve worked with clients as little as a few hours per month to offer technology guidance and half-time or more for larger clients requiring immediate help while they search for a full time executive. I tailor engagements to fit my client’s needs, adjusting as needed to help them reach their goals.
Here’s what others say about working with me…
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
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
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
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 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
I write a blog to share what I’ve learned and, hopefully, to help you communicate more effectively with business leaders on technical topics. I welcome comments and questions. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a message on LinkedIn. I’d welcome the opportunity to discuss Fractional CTO services (& CISO) and answer any questions you may have.
