Fortium Partners Welcomes John Mobley - A CIO with a Twist!


Dallas, TX – July 25, 2016 – FORTIUM PARTNERS, the world’s fastest-growing provider of IT turnaround and leadership services, today announced that John Mobley, a C-suite finance and technology leader with three decades of experience leading companies with large scale IT infrastructures, has joined the Florida practice. With long-term experience sitting in both the CFO and CIO seat, Mobley is uniquely positioned to identify how technology decisions can have the greatest impact on revenue.

In his most recent role, Mobley was both the finance technology leader and CFO of Stellar Recovery Inc., a third-party recovery service which manages Fortune 500 client portfolios of $1.2 billion, where he architected and executed solutions that enabled the company to grow revenue 46 percent each year for three years. Before that he was CIO of AFNI Financial Services, a $220 million business process outsourcing and recovery firm where he launched three e-commerce systems using cloud technologies to replace failing legacy systems and increased customer service capacity that resulted in $15 million increase in annual revenues. He was also the CIO for West Corporation and AGL Resources, and a technology and financial leader for CMS Energy and Contel. He served seven years in a consultant role with Deloitte early in his career and also co-founded his own consulting firm where he took on CFO and CIO roles with multiple businesses.

“Our clients often come to us when their technology needs are limiting their profitability, so it’s almost too good to be true to have a C-suite executive on board who can speak to both the finance and technology sides of the business equally well, with the track record to support it,” said Tim McCracken, Fortium Chairman and CEO. “John’s experience in dual leadership roles offers clients an uncanny ability to pinpoint exactly which technology decisions will best support revenue growth. The partners at Fortium are looking forward to solving new problems with John on board.”
“Evaluating business growth when there are factors at play like Big Data, Software-as-a-Service, compliance and other issues is tough to wrap your arms around if you don’t have insight into what makes the business tick from both a financial and technology perspective,” said Mobley. “You have to think like an accountant, a project manager, a vendor, an employee and a board director all at once. This is where Fortium Partners excels, and this is why I joined the team. We look at the full picture and deliver to clients the solutions needed to support revenue growth. Fortium has an unbeatable team of skill and experience.”

Mobley holds degrees as a master of professional accountancy and bachelor of business administration from Georgia State University. He is also certified as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, Project Management Professional and CPA.
