Chief Executive Officer

about me

As one of the founding members of Aretec, Anthony drives the company’s vision, mission, and overall direction. He is involved in the day-to-day managerial decision making and routinely collaborates with team members to ensure the proper implementation of the company’s strategic plan. He is also responsible for surveying the competitive landscape and identifying new growth and development opportunities for the company.

Before becoming Aretec’s visionary leader, his early career saw him working at America Online. It was there that his insight into networking and its infrastructure components sparked his interest in software development and enterprise design. Seizing that momentum, Anthony launched what has been a 20-year ascent in the IT programming and enterprise engineering industry.

A graduate of Western Governors University (WGU), Anthony holds a bachelor’s degree in business information technology management along with several industry certifications in programming and enterprise engineering. He has worked in senior-level positions with government solution providers such as IBM, Harris Corporation, Booz Allen Hamilton, in which he directly supported prominent clients within the presidential community of interest, Secretary of State, and Secretary of Defense, where his focus was on service modernization that improved operational efficiency.

Anthony comes from a large family and takes great joy in spending time with them. A kid at heart, he and his boys often dress up as Marvel characters to attend Comic Con events. He also enjoys playing paintball with his older boys, and collecting comic books and toys from the 80s.
