Quote From New Fortium Partner and GCA Member Michael Radziemski via Fortium Partners
“I have jumped into a number of situations and somehow created order out of chaos. Finance firms are especially in need of technology guidance these days, with the rise of machine learning, Big Data and cloud computing. These trends can seem vague and esoteric but a good technology leader will define what that means to an organization and figure out how to execute a forward-thinking vision efficiently,” said Radziemski. “The Fortium model is exciting because we don’t carry political attachments or cultural baggage, yet we still have skin in the game because we are all partners with one mission: client success. We are making a difference with so many companies in need.”
