Fortium Partners Adds Top Digital Media Strategist

Dallas, TX October 6, 2015 – FORTIUM PARTNERS, the world’s fastest-growing provider of IT turnaround and leadership services, announced today that top digital media and publishing strategist Paul Dalpiaz has joined the Midwest practice of Fortium Partners. Dalpiaz brings more than 30 years of experience with some of the world’s most reputable digital media agencies and online publishers.

Dalpiaz is an expert in e-commerce, often developing business models for emerging technologies in the digital media space, including ad serving, email marketing, search engine optimization, social media, lead generation, mobile and digital asset management. Recently, he was the CIO for Crain Communications, one of the largest privately-owned business publishers in the U.S. with over 1,000 employees and 18 international offices supporting 32 business, trade and consumer titles globally. He has also served as the top technology executive for GTN, one of the world’s premier media post-production facilities, and with J. Walter Thompson (JWT), a global communications powerhouse.

“The bleeding edge of technology is Paul’s comfort zone,” said Tim McCracken, Fortium Chairman and CEO. “He has the versatility to translate highly complex systems and technological innovations into easy-to-understand business tools that can support rapid growth. Paul bridges the gaps between departments by aligning technology to the business strategy, and ensuring traditional methods integrate with innovative tactics.”

“Today’s reality is that IT budgets are shrinking as leaders divert money toward income-generating marketing efforts with a technology twist – like email marketing, search engine optimization or social media. But that doesn’t mean CIOs have to lose control over their well-designed infrastructure,” said Dalpiaz. “As a frequent mediator for teams at odds, I know that many organizations need guidance as they make the transition to better systems, like cloud-based applications or social media platforms. I’m honored to join Fortium Partners because every partner is committed to helping leaders solve these kinds of business problems.”

Most recently, Dalpiaz served as CIO for Portfolio Solutions LLC, where he deployed a best-of-breed cloud infrastructure from the ground up. Dalpiaz holds a bachelor’s of business administration from Eastern Michigan University, and he serves as an advisor to the board for Vista Maria.
