Chris Beard

Strategic Advisor

Chris has over 23 years’ experience in building first-class professional teams delivering next-generation digital services. He is known for his entrepreneurial spirit, adaptability, and innovative application of new technology.

He takes satisfaction in delivering right-sized solutions to improve customer business. This approach has been proven through roles managing the IT operations of a 1.1M sq. ft. automotive plant, running Accenture’s Global Command Center, Logicalis’ Cloud and Managed Service Operations and leading CenterGrid as COO.

Through these roles cyber security has remained a focus for Chris as high visibility incidents moved from technology failures to technology vulnerabilities and customer compromise.  He is regularly the first one on, and last one off a bridge call, helping restore customer services and confidence.  

His experience shows through in resilient, adaptable, next-generation security solution design that helps customers eliminate technical debt and allow them to focus on their business with the maneuverability needed in today’s dynamic workplace.

He holds a BS in Management Information Systems and is a Leadership in Energy Efficiency and Design Accredited Professional (LEED AP).
