Hi, Jeff here with Cobb Technologies.

 

Meet Your Cobb Team - Jeff Blount, vCIO

 

Hi, Jeff here with Cobb Technologies.

I’m the vCIO here at Cobb, and what that stands for is Virtual Chief Information Officer. I meet quartet with my customers and talk about their technology. Specifically, we talk about things like budgeting for computer upgrades, server upgrades, and hardware refreshes. We also talk a lot about other services like cybersecurity awareness training and dark web monitoring. In general, I make sure that my customers stay ahead of the technology curve!

I studied business management at Bluefield college, which gives me the perspective of understanding business strategy and business objectives. Most of my career has been in technology, so it gives me that unique skill set to sit at the table with a small business owner and really understand that their knees are from the business perspective and tie those to a technology solution so that their organization can be as efficient as possible.

In my spare time, you can probably find me and my wife Crystal on the sidelines of a soccer field. Both of our children are heavily involved in soccer - I grew up playing soccer, so it was kind of natural for them to follow in those footsteps.

Other activities I like to do are sending time at Deep Run Park, riding the mountain bike trails there, and fishing in the pond, so if you see me there, stop by and say “hi!”

 

Say 'hi!" to Jeff!
