Why do companies hire IT Professional Anthony Sutton?
Where many companies view technology as a cost center, I transform IT into a practical investment. For more than 25 years, clients and employers alike have valued my clear communication style, my IT experience and the financial benefits these two bring.
In an industry known for its hourly rate, employers and clients have always appreciated the detail-oriented and efficient approach that gets the work done right the first time. This keeps costs, downtime, and headaches to a minimum.
Many clients hire me for my ability to present complex network and computer events in simple terms every stakeholder can understand. This helps business owners and corporate executives to make sound decisions aligned with business goals.
When it comes to experience, I protect a company’s interests in the office with knowledgeable network and data security, and in court. I have often been called as an expert witness based on my knowledge in cyber security and expert computer forensics experience.
As an IT veteran who can communicate with clarity, I can immediately contribute as a leader in a company to deliver projects on-time and on-budget as well as start new efforts to develop cost-saving strategies and develop user-friendly solutions for customers and employees alike.
If these sound like services that match a position you need to fill, call now. You can also email, but frankly, calls get interviews booked and create results a lot faster.
