What's a vCxO?

So what exactly is a vCxO? Simply put, the (v) = virtual, the C = Chief, the (x) can represent Information, Information Security, Operations or Compliance, and the O = Officer. I've held these various positions throughout my career and can bring this experience to your organization on an as-needed basis (virtual). For example, virtual Chief Information Officer - vCIO.

 Michael A. Alicea

Throughout my consultative career, I have focused on assisting my clients with the implementation of the best technology and compliance, and operational solutions for their specific business' size and needs.

As a virtual resource, I work remotely and directly with senior management and other executives including officers and the board of directors. I provide guidance, operational reviews, and reporting as needed. I then update the team and communicate these complex topics in a manner specifically designed to provide information and understanding to the intended audience.

I trust you will find my strong business and technical background a great benefit. I have held various C-level positions at various national and international, public and private, profit and non-profit organizations, and am sure I can add value to your operation.

Let's talk.
