Leading the Charge
Every great team needs great leadership. Meet some of our leaders:
Jimmy is SPINEN’s CEO, but you won’t hear him introduce himself that way. Typically, it’s “Hi, I’m Jimmy.” Titles, while they have some value, have never been of great interest to him. Rather, business owners and the challenges they face, and the geeks who want to solve them, have always been his focus. And as a graduate of Mercer University with a double major in Technical Communication and Computer Science, it’s no surprise he loves to talk tech. Jimmy provides the strategic vision for SPINEN, finding ways that bleeding-edge technologies can become leading-edge solutions for ever-evolving business challenges.
As SPINEN’s Service Manager, Steve leads the Infrastructure team and keeps the department’s day-to-day operations and activities running smoothly. His top priority is to ensure our clients stay happy, so when a new ticket comes through, the client can be confident that it is assigned, scheduled and completed in a timely manner.
Steve comes to SPINEN with more than 30 years of experience working with a wide range of open-source and proprietary software technologies, 20 of which are in the human and animal healthcare sectors. In addition to his technical knowledge, he is skilled in managing and mentoring teams across multiple disciplines. Steve, his wife and their small zoo (we’re not kidding – 6 cats, 2 dogs and 1 parrot) live in Fort Valley.
Matt’s passion for technology and teaching make him a natural fit for his role as SPINEN’s Solutions Architect and vCIO (virtual Chief Information Officer). In this position, he works with clients to assess the current status of their technology assets, identify and prioritize business needs, and create actionable plans to help meet business objectives. Matt has more than 8 years of experience in IT management, networking, and security, and last served as IT Manager of Kumho Tire Georgia. He holds a Master’s in Information Systems and Technology Management and is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Business Administration, specializing in IT Management. Matt lives in his hometown of Macon with his wife and two kids.
To call Brandon a Sales Manager is to sell him short. Whether he’s liaising with our Service and Sales teams or helping find the best solutions for our clients, Brandon brings his signature enthusiasm and energy to every task. Prior to joining SPINEN, Brandon worked in outside sales at Lowe’s, earning recognition as a Top 5% Sales Producer in the nation, #5 in the Southeast region and #1 in his market. There, he expanded his role to partner with market sales management, training new hires and streamlining processes. After earning his Bachelor’s in Information Technology from Georgia Southern University, Brandon saw an opportunity at SPINEN to marry his experience in sales and customer service with his passion for technology.
A Georgia native, Brandon lives in Forsyth with his wife and twin girls. In his spare time, he enjoys working as a youth minister, playing various musical instruments (currently learning piano), and spending time with his family.
A lifelong Georgia resident, Randell is a graduate of Reinhardt University with a degree in Communication and Media Studies. Prior to joining SPINEN, Randell spent 14 years in the HVAC industry, turning a weekend gig as an installer to a full-fledged career as a sales and marketing executive. He eventually landed the role of Vice President and began to oversee all aspects of the heating & air business. As the Account Executive of the Branding department, Randell works with business owners to find the best ways that digital marketing and the latest web technologies can help them realize their goals: “I enjoy learning the ins and outs of a client’s business and honing a marketing mix that will meet their needs and objectives.” Outside of work, Randell can be found enjoying one of his many hobbies or a perfectly rare sous-vide ribeye steak. He resides in Cumming, Georgia, with his two dogs and wife.
Josh is our Account Executive. Originally from Northwest Georgia, he came to Macon to attend Mercer University. While studying Philosophy and English Literature, Josh worked for Mercer’s IT department for 4 years, gaining real-world IT experience. After college, he worked in the insurance industry for almost 9 years, first as a Claims Adjuster, then later running a successful small business as an insurance agent. Joining SPINEN in October 2017, Josh brings a unique blend of technical knowledge, business experience, and customer service expertise that ensure SPINEN’s clients receive a superior IT experience.
