Kirk BennettDirector of Business Development
Kirk is an aggressive advocate for clients and is single-minded about doing what’s right for you. As Portable CIO’s Director of Business Development, he’s the relationship management guy and ensures that you know what’s happening during a project. Kirk is never happier than when he’s listening to a client’s issues and needs and figuring out the best solution.
Kirk loves climbing mountains, literally and figuratively. He approaches projects, people, and relationships with passion and a high level of detailed oversight. Kirk has broad experience in IT sales and business development, having held leadership positions at many companies including Siemens IT Solutions & Services, CenterBeam, and USOne Communications.
An outdoorsman, Kirk is passionate about biking and hiking. He’s actively involved in volunteering at Learning Ally, recording audio books for the visually impaired. Kirk is also an ardent supporter of Kiva, a micro-lending organization that helps to alleviate poverty.
I really enjoy taking a big-scary project, breaking it down into smaller pieces, figuring out how to address each component, and seeing how everything comes together in the end.
