Please tell us a little about yourselves.
Charles: I’m native Texan, but my family moved around a lot as Dad was a decorated fighter pilot in the Air Force. I was born in Austin and when my Dad retired from military service we returned to Austin. I attended UT Austin and then diverted in to the comic book business. I ran a comic book store and a wholesale book distribution business for several years. I married and eventually moved to my current home in Dallas to raise my family. My first intro into technology was automating the ordering and accounting system. I loved technology and decided it was the right profession for me. So I jumped in and learned aspects of network infrastructure, security, on through to the high-end technology of today. I admit it, I’m a cyber techno-geek. I advise my customers on the best technology directions to suit their business objective. I hold an MBA in International Finance, but it’s the technology puzzles I gravitate toward.
Rox: I am a naturalized Texan as bestowed upon me by Charles after I lived here for 30 some odd years. I moved from California to Texas with my husband to work and raise my family. I started out in accountants’ offices planning to be a CPA but was bit by technology and data processing with a focus on driving technology changes. These days I love to map the business objectives with technology and define the positive impacts of customer and workforce experiences in making money or saving money for an organization. I like to see companies, across all verticals optimize the technology investments they have and supplement to meet their roadmap for growth. Speaking to groups about technology, digital transformation and customer experience improvements are passions of mine along with the storytelling.
