(Lenexa, KS, –January 26, 2015) – RESULTS Technology, an award-winning Kansas City-based technology consulting firm, announces senior leadership changes with John French named Chairman and CEO. Patrick Murphy has been promoted to President.
As Chairman and CEO, French is responsible for driving business strategy as well as marketing, service quality, and future mergers and acquisitions. As President, Murphy is responsible for operations, administration, sales and growth. Murphy will report to French.
“RESULTS Technology has an extraordinary opportunity to help customers transform IT and deliver fundamentally more value to the businesses they serve,” commented John French, Chief Executive Officer. “I’m very proud to be part of an exceptional team of people who are committed to excellence in everything they do. RESULTS Technology has not only transformed current IT practices by focusing on the person rather than the technology, but is leading the way in bringing “Worry-free IT” to small business owners across Kansas City and St. Louis.”
Restructuring the leadership team also allows Mike Gilmore, Chief Technology Officer, to focus on expanding services including IT security (especially for bank clients), cloud computing solutions, and helping clients manage ever changing IT compliance regulations. “This transition allows our team to focus on meeting technology challenges that are impacting our clients,” says Gilmore.
Commenting on the team, French added, “Patrick, with his impressive leadership abilities and his successful sales track record, will complement the strong team that is already in place at RESULTS Technology. I want to congratulate Patrick for all he’s accomplished over the past several years helping transform RESULTS Technology to an industry leader in IT services and I’m excited about where he’ll take us as President. Our team was recently strengthened by the addition of Darla Liebl as Director of Marketing. This all means that I can devote more time to the part of this business that I enjoy most — developing customer relationships.”
French’s experience with the company dates back to 2003, when he served as CEO of Computer Source, a consulting firm providing technology products and services to over 1,000 clients in seven cities. Recognizing an opportunity to grow the firm’s client base of small businesses, Computer Source was re-invented and branded as RESULTS Technology in 2005. French also brings technology experience in the banking industry having served as Chairman and CEO of Bankline, a full service bank automation and data processing company.
Having spent over 25 years in sales and operations, Murphy has unique expertise in the technology industry. He has held several leadership positions in Fortune 500 companies as well as small businesses.
Murphy said, “For almost five years, I have worked with the best team at RESULTS Technology and have developed a deep admiration for the people and technology of this remarkable company. I am really excited about this new opportunity to continue to grow RESULTS.”
