Fortium Partners Welcomes CIO Strategist and Profit Driver

Dallas, TX – January 28, 2016 – FORTIUM PARTNERS, the world’s fastest-growing provider of IT turnaround and leadership services, announced today that Gary Czubak, a CIO strategist with a powerful ability to manage massive global network infrastructures and teams, has joined the Chicago practice of Fortium Partners. Czubak brings more than 40 years of experience transforming complex business visions into innovative, profit-driving results to businesses with robust, highly complex networks.

Czubak is a transformational profit-focused executive who has established the vision, strategy, management and governance of major technology investments that enable global operations. Prior to joining Fortium, Czubak took on major consulting engagements to manage national infrastructure projects or serve as an interim executive. Before that, he was the general manager and CIO for Network Engineering Technologies (NET), a technology services company where he implemented a new business strategy and developed programs that helped grow revenue and improve profitability for North America operations. Previously, Czubak was the vice president of operations for BuySide Realty Inc. Before that, he was CTO for Budget Group, Inc., where he led global computer operations and technology infrastructure, and his call center projects received an “Award for Customer Contact Excellence” from Customer Interface magazine. Earlier in his career, Czubak held progressive senior IT leadership positions at Ameritech.

“It’s a very rare occasion that a CIO’s CIO comes along to change the game. Gary has it all. He has led public and private companies, startup to large enterprise, transforming visionary plans into real life strategies that bring vast results,” said Tim McCracken, Fortium Chairman and CEO. “Gary’s track record proves he has seen it all, and he knows program and technology management better than just about anyone. He’s also highly respected among his peers since he was at the helm of one of the largest professional IT associations in the country. We’re honored to have him on our team.”
“I’ve been operating in customer-facing services environments for my entire career so it’s fascinating to be a part of the natural, and necessary, shift to virtual, consumer-driven technology that provides maximum value to customers,” said Czubak. “I have an appreciation for value-driven technology and I see that same fire in my fellow Fortium partners. I’m so pleased to join a firm that gives me so much access to other IT leaders who are shaping and deploying technology that make the biggest impact for clients and their customers.” 

Czubak is an executive board member and most recently served four years as president of the Chicago chapter of the Association of Information Technology Professionals.
