Change Management Leader Joins Fortium Partners


Dallas, TX February 11, 2016 – FORTIUM PARTNERS, the world’s fastest-growing provider of IT turnaround and leadership services, announced today that change management leader and turnaround expert Ron Belmont has joined the Phoenix practice of Fortium Partners. Belmont brings more than 35 years of experience helping public companies use technology as an integral component of business strategy to achieve goals.  

Belmont is a turnaround expert, focusing on people first and foremost, ensuring the right teams and organizational structures are in place to support long-term, lasting business objectives. He was most recently the CIO for Mobile Mini, Inc., a mobile storage company where he used a five-year strategic plan to help the company create an industrial strength, physical and cloud-based platform. Prior to that, he was the CIO for Prudential Financial, where he was responsible for replacing the entire management team, as well as a number of defunct processes and procedures. He partners with business unit presidents to deliver strategic projects while enhancing IT support across 11 global operations groups, resulting in a 20% reduction in IT infrastructure costs.

“Ron brings a strategic approach to technology leadership, because he seeks ways to bring value to the IT function not just in the present environment, but for generations to come. He can overhaul a highly complex public company infrastructure while grooming a team of leaders to handle the next big transformation,” said Tim McCracken, Fortium Chairman and CEO. “He’s always three steps ahead of everyone else because he can visualize and then implement an investment that will get maximum gains for minimal cost.”
“There are so many distractions today, but when a business has a vision, everything else is just noise. That’s why I like to look at the strategic orientation of a business and drive a consistent set of activities that will help strong teams achieve exceptional long-term results, even after I’ve moved on,” said Belmont. “By joining Fortium Partners, I’ll have plenty of opportunities to help clients use technology as a stepping stone to their next development stage.”

Earlier in his career, Belmont served as VP of applications development for Arch Capital Services and VP of information systems for Chase Manhattan Bank. He was an equity partner for two IT startups - Brenner Technology and Sycomm Systems Corporation. He also performed systems management for Metropolitan Life Insurance.

Belmont holds a Data Processing degree from St. Peter’s College in Jersey City, New Jersey.
